I think that's my favorite answer! :teehee: The other one is purpleegg's
10 or $15 for something made with Noro or angora, you might as well throw it at random people on the street.
I agree Marla... even in the city people won't be spending the bucks like usual. I would rather give my the beautiful scarves and hats I've made to my nieces than let them go for $15 or $20. (although $20 sounds like a lot sometimes ha)
THANKS for all your replies. Yes, lucky is the woman who has a husband with a hobby. But even though my dh does work with wood and build things around the house, he's never ever tried to sell anything. He doesn't realise the time spent esp when you're designing something you feel is special. (Kelly...you got it right.... Tell him to whip up something ornate out of wood that he spent time sawing, sanding and painting. Then see if he wants to sell it for a few bucks.ting. Then see if he wants to sell it for a few bucks.)
I did my first craft fair last year (2007) up in the Catskills. I paid $25 for the table. It was in the fall and all the 'weekend warrior's were gone and so was their money. The locals actually gasped when they saw the price of a few of my hats but then later, at Christmas I met this wonderful girl who owns a store in Margaretville called The Lost Art of Living. As I said, she sold two of my hats for $50 and $65. I NEVER thought I could get that much but she did!
Jen... I'm in Bovina Center which is hm, upper catskills, near Delhi, Andes, not as far north as Hunter. Really beautiful but it was 15 last night !!!
It's a funny thing, you (I) don't want to feel selfish yet, I haven't been knitting for enough years to want to just let stuff go that I love you know?
thanks again for your support, I needed it:hug:
