I Did It!!!!

I had a stall at a charity event last night and actually sold my cards....now I didn't sell as many as I hoped, but the event only had about one hour for people to sell, before and during the break the speaker took. I was asked for so many Mothers Day Cards, I should have mede some, as I would have made a killing, but with only a days notice I had no time to make specific cards. I did sell a few of the ones that just have lovely words on front and no mention of a specific event.

I even took photos of my stall, as I was really pleased with how it all looked. I received so many lovely compliments from people. Ironically the cards that sold very quickly were all my recent ones.....people LOVE the Miss Anya Girls and the Gorjuss Girls as all 4 cards I had with them sold out. I sold the Wedding card with The Greeting Farm "Cake Topper" set too....I think I could have sold more of those cards. I am also on a mission to make some animal cards, and cards with my Penny Black Girls....more grown up....so watch this space...anyway onto the pics...

One with me


And one without

I'm so glad it went well. You look gorgeous Caz, loving your outfit! And the stall looks awesome. Have you maybe thought about setting up a small and simple online store with a link via your blog, where people can pay via PayPal? I think PayPal has the tools to do this.
