did i sell or i didn`t i

good afternoon all.well i am back from the fair and i`m happy to report that i did better this time.i`ll never be able to retire but i did better than my 1st one and i have booked for the feburary one.
i sold more cards this time and i sold 1 candle.lol and that was to my mum, thanks mum and also a big thanks to dawn (who i know visits my blog) for buying some cards too.i took some cards today that weren`t sealed in poly bags and those are the ones that people bought.i also had no prices on so people had to ask this time too and that seems to have sold them better.
right i need to go and tackle a huge ironing pile now or big man will be wearing his pj`s to school.
catch you all later ;D

luv coops xxx

Chrissy said...

Well done Coops,it is only going to get better now that you are out there...[good for Mum too]...I buy my bags longer than normal, so I can slide my card in open,then when people pick up they can open and read the inside, or look, with the card getting greasy..just a thought.

Luv CHRISSYxx

Glad the sale went well. Can't believe the candles didn't sell. They are fabulous. Debs xx

sue said...

congrats for your fair Ive done a few and a few times have come away without selling a single card, very disheartening then other times manage to sell a few cards then feel as though its all worth while. I find people dont like the idea of spending £2.00 on a card

Teresa said...

Big Hugs, Teresa x
