I'm participating in my very first craft fair, a "green" one at that! It's at St. Tar's in Chicago this Saturday from 10:00 - 4:00, so if you're in the area, stop by!

So far I've made "un-paper" towels (single layer 6"x6" flannel wipes) and reusable snack bags. The snack bags are lined with a wipe-able nylon material so they wash and dry easier than waterproof PUL, and they have snap closures (that actually work! it took some extra fiddling and re-pressing). I'm selling 10 packs of wipes for $6, large (6"x9") bags for $7, medium (5"x7") bags for $6, and small (3"x5") bags for $5. I'm also crocheting up some baby ring toys out of cotton that I'll sell for $5. Does that all sound reasonable? I hope so.

Whatever doesn't sell after this weekend I'll be trying to sell online, so if you're interested in anything, let me know! I'll probably mark down the wipes to be competitive, but it'd be nice to actually get paid for my time and not just cost of materials :)
