This weekend I'm doing a craft show at a local high school, here is how I have it set up in my house right now. I'm very open to suggestions on how to display my items. I'm also listing the prices, please let me know if you think I'm asking too much or too little for something. Thanks !   Smiley

The larger bowls are $5 the smaller bowls are $3 and the coaster sets of 4 are $5. The two tapes are ID Cases and are $8

The blue tag items are 80's charms and are $3 The pink tag items are earrings and are $3 The red tags are larger marble magnets are $2 and the orange tags are sets of 6 bottle cap magnnets and are $3

WOW!  Your crafts are great.  I love your consistant retro style.  The green cloth really stands out.  I think it will draw people to your booth.  Your prices are reasonable.    

By the way.. I'm so jealous of your retro dining table and chairs.

I'd buy from you!

Nice work! I only have one tiny suggestion. It's hard to tell really from the pictures if you've done this for sure, but it tends to add visual interest if things are displayed at different heights. (i.e. prop or stack some things up, while some are directly on the table). Your stuff is TONS o fun and I would definitely stop and look if I saw you at a show.

Now, for your prices. To me, they seem pretty low, but I don't know what the market is like in your area. Pricing is such a sticky issue. Play around with it for a while and see what works for you.

i love your stuff! I agree w/ WhimseyLisa, i think your prices are a little low.   For the large record bowls, i think you could charge like $8.  For the scarves, $10.  I think you could pretty much bump up all the prices by $1 0r $2.  Don't short change yourself.

If you're gonna play with fire, then you're gonna get burned.

I second the above comments.
Prices definitely seem low. We all know how much time and effort go into all those things!
I am making little glass magnets like that, and plan to sell the individual ones for $1 each, or in sets for like $4 for 5, or $6 FOR 8, ETC.

Good luck!

This is probably a bit late... but I think it looks great!
I would definitely be drawn to all the colors, and all your creations are so neat!

So how did the show go?
Did you charge more or the same, and how successful were you? I'd love to hear the scoop...
