What do you reckon? Are they good enough to sell or am I kidding myself?

MrsHulk Sat 01-Oct-16 14:44:43

They're good enough, id pay £2 for one, or you could do 3 for £5?

I'd definitely buy some! £2 or 3 for £5 sounds like good value to me

I think they are lovely. Have confidence in the things that you make smile

I'd buy one for £2. Probably the robin - very cute.

Are they for hanging on the tree? They're beautiful! I love the sparkly trees.

They are good and worth £2 in the right place - but I am not sure that people at a school Christmas Fair would pay that sort of money for them?

I do lots of fund raising events and this is one of the biggest difficulties, we make lovely, hand crafted items that would sell for £££s at an 'Artisan Craft Fair' or similar but at local school/Church/village hall type events people often won't spend what an item is really 'worth'.

Often at a school fair children go along with a fiver to last the whole afternoon so there is a limit to what people actually spend their money on.

Lovely. Very neat stitching. My craft group did a Christmas craft fair last year, and though we had lovely stuff, a lot didn't sell. One of our ladies sells a lot, and she makes random quickly made stuff , that she sells very cheap. So bugs in jars, fabric mice, harvest mice, covered notebooks, she spray painted acorns gold and strung them up up and sold for 50p.

BennyTheBall Sat 01-Oct-16 14:53:07

Yes, definitely good enough.

School fair? You need to sell them very cheaply as the children, ime, usually have about £10 to last them for everything.

They're lovely. I would buy one.

Garthmarenghi Sat 01-Oct-16 15:03:40

iklboo Sat 01-Oct-16 15:07:42

They're so cute. I'd buy 3 for £5. I wish I could buy some off you, actually!

fastdaytears Sat 01-Oct-16 15:10:05

Sod the fair just sell them on here!

icouldabeenacontender Sat 01-Oct-16 15:12:20

Another vote for sod the fair.
I reckon you can start taking orders on here right now.

BifsWif Sat 01-Oct-16 15:14:14

I'd buy them, they're lovely!

RockinHippy Sat 01-Oct-16 15:15:53

Very cute & very saleable. Unless you are selling for charity though, I think you under estimate yourself & you could sell for more. Tree decorations can be collectable & those types sell for more

YesItsMeIDontCare Sat 01-Oct-16 15:20:27

They're lovely - but my tree has a blue & white theme... just mentioning in case you feel like doing a few to accommodate weirdos people like me who might have a "theme".

I think £1 is selling yourself short, £1.50 at the very least if you're not feeling confident. Like the idea of 3 for £5 if selling at £2 each.

yeOldeTrout Sat 01-Oct-16 15:22:00

£1 max, each, sorry. I know you probably did them to a high standard & put lots of time into them, but my kids bring home very similar arty-crafty stuff, so I'd have to like yours hugely to add to the tree-clutter we already have.

I wondered about changing the design to brighter colours (yellows, bright orange, fuschia), more shiny bits. (okay more like Essex girl tat... ) that's what would sell here, I suspect. Less homey more snazzy.
