    Thanks Tracy. we are trying to perfect this to sell them inexpensively at craft shows.

  • Beautiful! Think you have a great idea, roll with it. Here is a suggestion: make them as pillow covers. Sell several sizes of stock pillow forms. You make the covers. An easy upsell as you can sell multiple pillow covers for one form. Think seasonally, spring, summer, fall, winter. Also a great way to have more of your product on hand. Uses less space to have more pillow covers than hundreds of pilliws. Also stage well, the better it looks the more sales you have. Set up a couple chairs, or bench or fake "bed" made from empty cardboard boxes to showcase your wares. Space at some of these shows is at a premium, so try different set ups till you find one that works. Good luck and have fun!

    For displaying, because we KNOW how pricey space gets at the venues--how about pics blown up double size showing them in different settings? Bedroom, den, cabin, man/gal caves, offices, etc., posters can allow buyers to see their new pillows in different settings AND you can display them 'ladder style' to take advantage of the vertical space that is rarely used in the venues to display. Rope, sisal even ribbon can be used to string them up and it's very light weight. You're a great team, you and Mrs. Arnold, Deb
