Wanna buy a piece of the Monkey?

I'm trying a new adventure this weekend: I'm having a table at a local crafts fair.

Now, normally I'd be better prepared. But I stopped into the Ben Wilson Senior Center,580 Delmont Avenue in Warminster, about five weeks ago when I saw signs that their annual craft show was coming up. They had no room, all sold out -- "but would you like me to put your name on a waiting list?"  Sure. Two days ago I got the call that a table could be had -- for tomorrow.  So I'm scrambling.

Friday, November 15 - 5 to 8 p.m.
Saturday, November 16 - 8 am to 2 p.m.

Here are two things I've made to sell, in addition to the cards that I'll have of course!  These are both gift card holders. 

For the owl (left), the gift card or cash can be slipped between the antlers ("on an owl??" hubby asked).

I made this using a modified file from the Silhouette Online store, cut with my Cameo.

This cute reindeer is a gift card holder that we made as part of my Craft Class at Kathy Davis Studios. The file, too, is from the Silhouette Online Store (love that place!!) with just a few extra embellishments to make it fun.

I plan to have these for sale for $3.00 each, or 4 for $10. Do you think that's a fair price?

I plan to sell my cards for the same. After the craft show, my cards will be available exclusively at Domenic Graziano Flowers & Gift Stores. Graziano's has three stores including the Artisan Marketplace in Southampton, PA; in Warminster, PA; and, in Doylestown, PA.  Domenic plans to put my cards in all three locations, beginning next week!  Prices will range from $5 to $10 each, depending on the complexity of the card. Watch for your favorite CardMonkey hitting the stores soon! :)
