I want to be a vendor at a craft fair!

I would like to ask all of you for ideas. I'm going to try to get a space at a craft fair. Our local school has a Santa's Secret Workshop / Craft Fair for all of the kids. The purpose is to let little kids shop for everyone that they would need to shop for. Adults, obviously will also be there. I want to try to get a space at the fair, and I was wondering if you had any other ideas for things I could make. So far, I want to make:

  • altered jars (Daddy's Harley Fund, Mom's Starbuck Fund, Family Vacation Fund, etc. I just think these would be a GREAT idea for the kids to buy!)
  • journals (using my Bind It All -- I think everyone likes journals)
  • small scrapbooks (once again, I can use the Bind It All)
  • travel journals / scrapbooks (Bind It All again)
  • paperbag albums
  • autograph books (the kids could buy these for themselves for the end of the school year to have all of their friends / teachers sign)
  • teacher gifts (maybe a journal with a matching bookmark, packaged festively!!)
  • bookmarks
  • cards (I can do Christmas cards and Valentine cards, maybe some birthday cards too)
  • magnets (chipboard pieces or just cut die cuts, etc.)

Now, this event is on December 8th. Every item should be under $15, because it's supposed to be kids shopping. Can you think of other great items that kids might want to purchase for others? Let me know what you think! Any and all ideas are appreciated! Thanks!!

Hi Carol,i was thinking of maybe a Christmas card kit full of a few card making items(card stock cut to size,ribbon,etc) so they could make a christmas card for Mum & Dad themselves.

wow, I would say you have pretty much got this covered, you are going to be so busy to get this all made by early December, good luck! Looking forward to seeing what you make for it!

Sounds like a lot of work but a ton of fun! I know the kids feel really great picking out something themselves to give family/friends for the holidays! I think it's a wonderful idea!

think you have a good start on ideas, simple and inexpensive

Fantastic ideas so far! I was going to say about the card making kits but see Kristy had the idea! - you could include the letters to make up Mom or Dad in the kits too!

Sounds like you have some great Ideas, Maybe Paper Star Christmas Ornaments, or Cake In Mug is always a great idea :) We have one of these here to and every year I say, I want to be in that, Maybe next year will be the year :) Can't wait to see what you come up with :)

something I have seen at our sale that sells well is taking "crystal" pedistal candle holders and gluing a cute plate or saucer on top. cute for cookies or cupcakes. Laurie
