I haven't been organised enough recently to sell loads. Most go to friends, although I have done 2 craft fayres in the past. One a disaster (their fault not mine!) and one a great success. I have sold a couple of things via MN too.
I have my own website but tbh I don't really promote it very well. I sell cards through dh's shop and also to people that i know. One thing I miss about teaching is the staff room- and all the contacts there who need cards for various occasions. As for how many I sell, it all depends on the season and what event is coming up. Sold loads of mothers day cards through dh's computer shop- but generally its blokes that go in there. Can't see me selling many father's day cards through there tbh
Can I just tentatively say...if you 'organised selling people' need extra cards to sell, I would be happy to sell to you to sell on until such time I get organised ! ..Or is that cheeky & just not done
thanks, very helpful. I thought I would start my Christmas stock in August! Is that a good plan? This will be the first Christmas I have attempted to sell cards. Do people tend to buy packs of 5 or 10 or do they tend to buy one off 'special' Xmas cards for 'mum' or 'grandma' etc?
I found that people just bought one or two - but that is because most of mine were more elaborate. I think if you sold in packs, you would have to do more basic cards & charge less.
I think they key is making a nice card but not charging too much. I think most want an 'individual card' but do not want to spend loads
