Holiday Bazaar Wrap-Up

What a fun day yesterday at the Holiday Bazaar! I loved meeting all the ladies who dropped by to say hi.
It's a funny thing when complete strangers come up to you and give you a huge hug and tell me that they love you. Then you launch into a stamping conversation like we've known each other forever. Stampers are the BEST!!! Thank you for stopping by and introducing yourselves.
I've included a couple of pictures to share with you. It's awfully hard to look professional in a grade school gym with fire extinguisher boxes and exit signs and doors, etc.
I only had a small handful of things to sell. I was mostly using this event for tutorial sales and class sign-ups. I've had several e-mails inquiring what price I decided to sell the items for...
The Giant Nugget Boxes were $10. I took 5 and sold 3.

The Peppermint Patties in the Pretzel bags were $5. I took 20 and sold 5.

I've had a few questions about the York Peppermint Patties and the packaging not being like the ones shown above. If you shop on the Holiday candy isle, they are packaged in little baggie things with Holiday graphics on them. If you want the plain foil wrappers like these, you have to shop on the regular year around candy isle. Now you know Ü
Secretly, I was kind of excited they didn't all I have teacher gifts for Benjamin's Middle School teachers and friends Ü
Honestly, I was too busy talking to people than selling, so it is probably my fault they didn't sell so well. Good luck to all of you that have told me you are making these items for your craft shows!
Look how cute this Giant Nugget Box is from Hallie Gainer!
Congratulations to Ellie Augustin. She is my 2nd winner for a FREE pass to UStamp Year-end Blowout 2009! I think Ellie was a little excited when she received an e-mail from me telling her that Nicholas and I drew a new winner because the other one did not respond back to me within 24 hours!! is a snippet of her e-mail:
