1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Pricing Items in different economin areas on: October 18, 2005 03:48:53 PM
I live in an area where the economics change drastically from town to town. What do you do about pricing in those circumstances. I feel comfortable charging prices that cover my expenses and labor then some  to the better off towns, but the school and church shows at the lower economic town wouldn't pay those prices.
I can either not do their shows,
select items out of my inventory to sell - keeping my name active locally, or lower prices.

What's the best choice or do you have another solution?
My items are Gothic teenage accessories  ($1 - $40.00)
Thanks, Bethany

How did you know to have enough supplies to cover a $1000 profit on your first show? I would suspect I would not bring enough with me!

You give ma an idea though, I do detachable dreads for ATS dancers, I might be able to work that into something....Bethany

The redid Village Thrift. Clean, takes credit/debit - much nicer and the prices seem the same to me, but someone told me they thought they were  higher.

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Styrofoam heads on pegs on: April 12, 2005 12:09:27 AM
I use styromfoam wig stands/heads to display my crafts. I went to the 'wood project' section of the craft store and bought unfinished boards that have 4-5 wood shaker pegs coming out of the (meant to be mounted on the wall and hang coats or stuff). I lay these flat on my table and set the foam heads onto the pegs (my heads had holes in the bottom already). Extremely simple and cheap. They were $2.99 each.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: x-mas gifts for punk rockers on: April 11, 2005 11:59:18 PM
How about a dozen duct tape roses  in a beer bottle, the roses pierced with nail studs, piercing studs (appropriate types), guitar picks, etc. Maybe throw some icsense sticks in with the roses (like cattails). With a lovely match AOL cd painted and nail sud heads glued on.

I also lived near this holiday decoration sore that sold feathered ravens (fake) about 8" tall, with a wire at the feet for attaching to whatever (I did consider the xmas tree!). Cool for room decoration saw it in half and now it's a box.

I love these. especially with the little bows! Would you be willing to sell a pair to a non-knitter? Black or grey, perhaps?

They're great! The bows are a nice touch.

You can also make an awesome candle lantern with  vegetable or juice cans (silver with the labels off), no ice.

Use torch to carve lines on decoration, then use gun bluing (optional) to get a beautiful container. Make in lines like the ice ones, and swquash ha can. The lines will have a rainbow effect around all the cut parts. They rust over time, but I think it makes them look better!
