    Here you go!
    The only thing NOT in the pictures are the mice.
    Those are downstairs just hanging around.



    I have 4 sets of these towels. They are embroidered with the Submarine Dolphin on them. It looks blue, but is actually gray. They are also done in gold. These should sell FAST!

    These are totes that I made into diaper bags. I only have 2 of them. I could make a couple more, but I'm out of that fabric.

    Ok, now for pricing.
    Give me your feedback on what you think.

    The mice are going for $1. There's no dispute there.
    Towels are actually a set of bath, hand and washcloth. I'm thinking $40 for the set.
    Runners are going for $10-$15. The ones I say are ugly will go for whatever I can get for them. I'll probably go for $15, but will come down to $10, just to get rid of them.
    Books.....$12
    Pillowcases....$12
    Potholders....$2
    Totes...eveyone has seen them, that's why there are no pictures, those are $20 firm!
    The coasters are $5/set of 4

    Quilts....Christmas and Cardinal are both at $200, but will come down to no lower than $150
    The smaller one will go for $50. If I have to, I'll come down to $35 on that one.

    Did I miss anything?
    I keep thinking I don't have enough, but what can I do?

    It really may not look like much, but I have doubles of ALL the pillowcases. I have 4 sets of coasters.
    4 sets of each of the towels. 4 sets of gray/silver and 4 sets of gold.
    I have 2 of each of the runners, except for the ones I say are ugly. There are only 2 of those.
    Oh, and I have 48 mice!

    I thought about that, but if I do, then that puts me in the category of Retail and Gov't of Guam will want some of my money. If I do it word of mouth, give out my phone number, then they won't get involved.
    I had to get my Vendor's License and when I did, they handed me this paperwork I have to fill out and return to them. Simply put....I have to TELL them how much money I made and when I turn in the paperwork, they will charge me the tax that is to be paid on what was sold. Now, do you think I am going to tell them EXACTLY how much I made? lol
    BTW....I get charged a 6% tax on what I tell them. Don't think it's fair since I had to pay $25 for the ONE DAY Vendor's License!

    Yes, Karla, I will report back to you.
    Do you want it typed, double-spaced? lol
    I'll even put it in big font so you don't hurt your eyes. lmao

    No, I don't start working on sewing for next year. I start cleaning up the craft room! I would take a picture of it, but I am really too ashamed to do that. It's REALLY, REALLY bad!!!

    All of your work is great! Can't wait to hear how it goes. I think your prices are very reasonable, too.

    I would raise the prices, but feel that if I do, they won't sell. People will just walk away. I may adjust some, depending on what is there. I doubt it tho. I'm pretty rock bottom as it is now. With the price of the pillowcases at $12, I"m only making $3 on each one. If I do it next year, I will definitely raise the prices.

    I didn't take a pic of them because they were already packed away nice and neatly in the bag.
