Getting Ready...

for a craft sale. Restarting a business after a move is difficult and my SU business is no different. I was contacted in September by someone in my new area who is doing a vendor sale/craft show and fundraiser. I don't exactly have the time to prepare for such an event but I felt not participating wasn't an option. I need to get my name and face out there and meet some new people. I need it for my business but I also need it for myself! I am digging out as many things as I can find from previous sales and craft shows and supplementing with a few items that are quick to prepare and also good sellers. Memo cubes are one of my favorite items to give as gifts. I prefer practical gifts and memo cubes fit that bill. I order mine from StampOnThis.com, you can find a link in my sidebar. She is fantastic to deal with, provides great items, fast shipping and great customer service. I also purchased the cello bags from there to package the cubes in. They are a tad long so after tying it with ribbon I cut part of the bag off. Here is a sampling of my cubes. I used various SU stamp sets: Snowburst, Baroque Motifs, and Priceless. I also prefer to make and sell items that I know I can give away in case I don't sell out. Memo cubes make great gifts for teachers, co-workers or when you just need a little something.

Because I am busy prepping for the sale, I am not stamping much for fun this week. I hope to be back in the swing of things next week.

I really like these. I'm making things for a craft fair, too. How much do you ask for these?

When you stamp your cubes, do you stamp the top and bottom or just the sides? I would also be interested to see how much you sell them for. Thanks!

All the best as you prepare for this! I hope all your hard work pays off in the end.
