Larissa,

Your initial comment on pricing was very well said!

Yes it was! Larissa you would have flipped at the show I was at yesterday. The booth across from me did some face painting. They charged $3, $5 for s full face. That seemed really crazy cheap to me and made me think I would not let my kid get it. I didn't see them paint one face though since the traffic was non existent.

I made that mistake a few times when I first started.  I also made the mistake of taking on fairs with no traffic.  It's a tough thing, and when you're sitting there with no customers, it's hard not to lower your prices to pennies.  The lesson to learn is you shouldn't, though.  Not worth it.

Some people just don't realize how much energy and time is put into a handmade _____ (insert whatever). I would rather pay more for some handmade quality made item, than something I'll throw in a trash can in a year or sooner.
