    How are you selling things so cheap and making money? The big kid grab bag for 1.00 ? What is your cost in them?

    Looking forward to seeing the new items you'll be making this year. I sometimes "run away from home" and come to Kansas City by Amtrak. It would be great to meet up with you sometime. BTW, is it KC, Kansas or KC, Missouri where you live? Almost came last week but my dog sitter was out of town.

    Love the yard. Are you on the Kansas side or Missouri? I've been there a ton but honestly your house is probably the nicest I've seen there, I love your channel btw. Hugs from Minneapolis,Minnesota Sheila

    Gmorning, Gail! Your front entrance is SO pretty! I was wondering where you found the Halloween paper with the black cat and pumpkin vintage type picture on it? That's my favorite Halloween pic.

    Hi, Gail. Very good point about the clothes pins and paper clips now being available at the Dollar Tree. What a great job on the two walls! We just had a wall built (contractor) and just by watching him, I know how much hard work you and your husband put into those walls. Happy crafting and looking forward to what you will be making for your fall shows!

    You are so right about the clothespins, etc. You can't really compete with the Dollar Tree when it comes to $1 items. If I were doing a craft fair I'd try to come up with items that would justify a price of $3, $5 and $7. People can get all kinds of great $1 finds elsewhere. I think most are willing to pay $3 without blinking, for an item that appeals to them; but they are not going to do that if they can get similar at the Dollar Tree for a dollar. You just can't compete with Dollar Tree. Also, I hear people say 'but it's handmade". Most people don't don't care about the fact that it's handmade vs manufactured all things being equal, i.e. they are not going to pay more to get handmade.Anything that has detail and workmanship in it also has a lot of time and effort in it, and few people are willing to spend more money for that aspect either. I think people will pay more if they love an item and it's not easily found elsewhere or if it's unique. I think you are smart to get away from the things that are in abundance for a dollar. I'd have an abundance of $3 items. And I'd have a lot of $5 and a few $7 items. If you sold just one of each of those you'd gross $15. You'd have to sell 15 one dollar items to gross the same amount. You're biggest investment in 15 one dollar items would be your time. And time is money. If you can make a $3 item in the same amount of time that you can make a one dollar item you'll have a bigger profit margin. Five $3 items would gross $15 too. It takes a lot less time to make 5 items than 15.

    Hi Gail, Bless your heart! I am so grateful that you will be one of the first people I've seen try to get away from mini journals, composition books, paper clips, and clothes pins, That's ALL anyone does. I've been hungrily searching my favorite channels (yours is right at the top) for NEW ideas, so I was THRILLED to hear your plans. You're wonderful, I love your channel and always love your house decor designs. And your yard is absolutely beautiful. So thanks again for being so observant and changing with the times. Have a fabulous day! Thanks, Denise
