First ever stall at a Bazaar

Back in November my friend S and I had our first ever stall at a Christmas Bazaar selling some of our hand made items.
It wasn't a particularly successful day....the Bazaar wasn't very busy.....and we didn't sell a great deal......but it was a useful experience....and it was fun.......and we did make a profit.....and we learned what does sell well.....felt christmas tree decorations!!
It was certainly worth documenting for my 2012 album.
And in July the W.I. have their Summer Bazaar.......what do you think would sell well at that time of the year......I'm sort of mulling over whether to make some more felt owls in bright summery colours?

Like the peeks of the She Art at the back. I think felt owls and birds would do well x

My daughter is really into keyrings and charms to put on her bag. Small felt owls and birds would work well for those. Or felt flowers on pony bands and clips as a set. Or brooches?
And I had to laugh at that comment you left on my blog. Go back to the post you did on the bloggers weekend and then tell me you don't remember taking that picture!

I think owls would always sell well! I like your layout too.

How about bunting ... Something for those decorating for b-b-q parties :) .... I do think ow and birds are still popular

Karen said...

I would think the owls would sell very well. They are adorable! I love the way you've used half of the circle paper in your layout.

Amy said...

Yes, I think the owls would sell well too - they do here and did so extremely well at the work/school fete last weekend.

I love the owls, but I was also going to suggest bunting too. Have you seen that "Craft Seller" magazine? Might be worth getting a copy..I know what you are going to say now..there's Sian trying to get me to buy magazines again!!

What a great looking page! Good luck coming up with an idea for the summer bazaar.

Becky said...

Stephanie said...

Fun & profit? I'd say that was bloody successful Jacky! Gorgeous layout :) x

Owls are popular right now and very cute. You had some lovely things on your stall, the whimsical paintings caught my eye.
Good luck with your summer stall and enjoy the making for it.
