Sale time!

I'm trying to get some things ready for my first ever sale.  I have no idea what to expect with this.  I'm trying to make mostly small things. With the economy in a down turn, I'm sure 'extras' are last on most peoples' list of what to buy.  I'm hand dyeing scarves, making small, 5 x 7 landscapes that will be framed, some little bookcovers, maybe a few small purses, possibly some postcards.  I'm just trying to be as productive as possible the next two weeks as the sale is the first week of April.  Here is a sample of one of my bookcovers that can be re-used if you buy more of the little insert books.  Do you think anyone will buy it?  Have a creative day!

Hi, Janet! Cool items! Just wondering what you are charging for the notebooks and the scarves! I always carry a notebook around at work and like to do it in style, so I am wondering...... thanks! Mary Kay ( and mknavy90 on TQS). Best Wishes! MK

Debra, the sale is at Boutwells Landing in Oak Park Heights. It is a beautiful place. I'm doing this with a group of women I know. They've been having sales for about 8 years.
Mary Kay,
I'm still in the creating mode and haven't thought about prices yet. Need to sit down and figure costs etc. I'll get back to you. Janet
