11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Help with 4th of July BBQ on: July 03, 2007 10:26:52 AM
You could make shandies. Half beer and half lemonade, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shandy.

As for potato salad, using white wine vinegar can give it some flavor and keep it light without mayo.

You could make popsicles for dessert--get some yummy juices, like mango or whatever and freeze it popsicle makers.

And my favorite ever recipes for peanut butter pie (it makes two!):
1 cup powdered sugar
1 (8-ounce) block light cream cheese, softened
1 cup natural-style, reduced-fat creamy peanut butter (such as Smucker's)
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 12-ounce tub frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
2 9-inch ready-made reduced-fat graham cracker shells
4 teaspoons fat-free chocolate sundae syrup (if you want it)

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add the condensed milk, and beat until combined. Stir in the whipped topping. Divide the mixture evenly between shells; put in freezer 8 hours or until set. Cut into wedges, and drizzle with chocolate syrup, if you want.
12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: credit cards at craft fairs? on: June 27, 2007 11:50:59 AM
I don't think I saw this mentioned about PayPal Virtual Terminal.  You can turn it off and on.  So when I needed it for shows starting in May I turned it on and I'm charged $20 a month for each month it's on.  I don't have another show until August so I'm going to turn it off for July and most of the fall.
I don't take people's address because you don't need it to fill in the VT form.  I just get their phone number in case their an issue.

Ugh, we've all been there.  In fact I was just there awhile ago.  Most likely, it's not you! So make sure to research other shows before you commit to them. 
Who's the audience? What's the advertising going to be like? Where is it? Good location?
And although it probably isn't you, do take a look at your display.  I recently got some new tablecloths (sheets on sale actually--nice and cheap) in my brand color and came up with a new display for a product and I think it made a difference.
Lots of people have blogs and post about craft fair with their setup so you can poke around and get ideas.
14  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: The Label / Tag Thread! (Where to buy & how to make) on: June 27, 2007 11:39:12 AM
I recently saw someone use Mini Moo cards as hang tags (so not sew on to the product.) It looked really good. You can get images printed from any kind of online photo account.

I also saw someone go the whole recycling route a use the backs of cereal boxes, magazine subscription cards, etc and print a label to stick on it to use as hang tags too.

There's a shop called Lovely Yarns in Hampden (http://www.lovelyarns.com/) and it's a fun part of town too.
There's also a place in Fells Point called A Good Yarn (http://www.agoodyarn.com/) but I've never been there.
16  UNITED STATES / Maryland / Re: hello kitty style stores on: May 03, 2007 11:12:13 AM
I'd recommend going to HMart. It's a large Korean grocery store chain.  They have a little Hello Kitty section. There isn't one in Baltimore, you have to go to Catonsville.  Here's the address: 800 North Rolling Rd. Catonsville, MD 21228
Here's their link: http://www.hmart.com

Oh, there's also Fashion Attic, in Fells Point Baltimore.  I've never been there, but I'm going to try to take some stuff there since I called vouge Revisted and they're not taking clothes right now.

Wow, Stereoette, that looks like an amazing resource. Do you know of anything like that in the US with the same kinds of resource listings?
20  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's your Etsy shop doing now? on: February 02, 2007 07:51:13 AM
I'm really trying to update more often.  I figured I can get photos ready and then just post them up throughout the week so there's a few new things each week to stayt fresh.
Don't ask me why it's taken me so long to figure this out!  Roll Eyes
I geuss with my site it's best to do big updates all at once, but on Etsy it's good to draw things out so you show up in the time machine and earlier on searches.
