Default Will this item sell at craft fair?

I made these and a friend suggested having a craft booth with her at a fair. Not sure if they will sell. What do you think? Thanks

Very cute! Whether or not they will sell depends on lots of factors. Price, venue, customer base, competition.... Craft/art fairs are difficult to figure out, what sells out in no time at one craft fair may not sell at all at the next one. All you can do is give it a try & see how it goes.

They are very cute, I think your price point will be the biggest factor on if they will sell or not. worth a try if you are able to share to space with someone.

I like them--give them a try--are these fabric pieces ? One year the ladies were wearing those tiny scraps quilts that were made into pins--just lovely and so tiny.

Ditto. Price point makes it or breaks it for me no matter how cute. I hope they all sell and that you have fun making them. Very pretty.

Hi,
I was recently in an upscale boutique in a fashionable little town in Florida. They were selling keys on ball chains, for $38.00 to $68.00 !!!!! They just had fancy names like "Wishing Keys" and "The Key to my Heart" If the can get away with that, your beautiful and jewelry will certainly make a ton of money. It sure is pretty. Give it some catchy names!
