Craft packs

I've booked a stall at our local festival to promote a craft club we are trying to set up. We would have been allowed to have a stall for free, but my friend wanted to sell card making supplies so we have paid £10 for a space.
I thought that I would sell "Make a Card" packs for children, everything they would need to make one card, ie a card, an envelope a topper, some background card or papers, peel offs etc. As it is Fathers day the following week I am going to make some Fathers Day packs, some Girly packs, Bratz and Princess Stickers, and some butterfly, dolphins etc for very little children. I'm also buying some craft boxes, photo frames and key rings to sell.
Now that I have ordered it all, I am panicking that it won't sell, so would appreciate any thoughts or feedback.
I was thinking of selling them at £1-£1.25 each and making up a sample of each so that the parents and children can see the finished product.

I think it sounds good & price seems about right. I have a cute butterfly punch if you would like me to punch out any butterflies for you

I would like some butterflies, they would be really good on the cards. Do you want to do a swop, you could send me some butterflies, and I'll send you something back, if you let me know what sort of thing you like

No probs, how many would you like ?
I can do various coloured paper & card - I'll make them bright & cheerful if they are for kids cards. I have used them one of my MN gallery cards so you can see them there.
I have your address from the Card Challenge so I'll get punching !

kkgirl, do you have a sizzix? I have the doll die and the boy and girl hair which would be really good for kiddie packs. also have balloons, gifts, big birthday cake, and candles if that helps.

No , I don't have a sizzix.
I received my order from Baker Ross today with some dolphins and other stickers, so have loads now to pack up ready.

Do you think it sounds like a good idea, if it doesn't work then I'll be on Ebay selling them off!!

Thanks, I'll look out for them.
Did you put your address in so I can send you something back?

I do think the kits are a good idea.
