    Someone suggested I print photos I've taken and sell them at the craft show. I didn't want to invest anything, BUT as I strolled across the entire Wal-Mart this afternoon, from yogurt to dog food, I happened to see small clear plastic 4 x 6 frames for $1 each. The ones that have a little bend in the back so they sit up. I bought 7. I'll fill them with what I feel are my 7 best shots (good grief--HOW will I ever decide?? :roll: ) and stick them on the craft sale table.

    1. What do you think? 2. $5?

    The woman in charge said I could also sell copies of my book! WooHoo!!! :D :D :D

    I'd go for $5 for them. Worth a shot, right?

    check out Walgreens photo center online. I've had pictures blown up to 16x20 for a reasonable amount. Maybe you can take orders for 8x11 prints. or how about making and selling your own calender? I would buy one for sure :)

    I think $5 is a good price - and like sewsewquilter said, you could always let them talk you down - at least at the end of the day anyway. :wink:

    What a fantastic idea Karla!! Yes, Dollar Tree has some awesome frames for, you guessed it $1 a piece too!
    You can also get a package of 3 1/5 X 5 kodak photo paper and sell copies of your favorites :D. They are fairly inexpensive, and best of all you don't have to cut them apart!! Quick and easy.
