I have been taking orders for cakes and cupcakes for Halloween. I decided to take orders instead of baking a bunch of stuff and sitting outside a store hoping to sell it all. I didn't want to be left with any baked goods. So it is working well with taking orders and buying supplies as I need them. So far I have 5 orders totaling $60. Three people have said they would donate to my marathon run in November. I do not know that total yet. I have decided to extend my orders for baked goods through Christmas holiday. This is a good way to make a dollar stretch. I figured it would cost about $3 to make a cake. Then I would sell it for $20. And that $20 will go to the Scholarship Fund. I hope I stay busy baking cakes.
Indy had a great idea to raffle off dolls she made. Rhonda's slapping thread is doing very well too. And Sally and Alexis' Chat Marathon was awesome.
to you all. I want to get more ideas posted. So if anyone else has ideas, please post them even if you think they might be silly. You never know what will happen. Look at poor Rhonda who has taken a beating for such a long time. What a good sport she is.
And look how much $ it has brought in.
Another idea is making use of what I have around the house. Several years ago I went and sat with a friend at her booth at an Arts and Crafts festival. She asked me if I had anything I could make to try to sell. Well I came up with a simple wood bunny with fabric ears. I made about 15 of them and to my surprise, I sold every one of them for $5 a piece. If time allows, I will try that again. Here is a pic of the bunny.
And if that doesn't work, I'll head to the nearest Mall with my ole guitar and start singing Peter, Paul and Mary songs. Of course, people would give me money just to shut me up. My singing is just as out of tune as my guitar is.
