candy! candy! candy! (treat pails and craft fair oh my!)

I finally finished up the candy pails that I'm making for next weekend's craft fair!  I set up my "practice booth" in the garage yesterday, took pictures of it, and figured out what all I need to finish up.  (If you missed some of my other craft fair goodies, you can see them HERE)


 I used stickers on these pails (the pails were in two-packs in the Target Dollar Spot!) The little monsters are PERFECTION on these fun treat pails!  I made some matching cards too. . .but I think I forgot to photograph them!


My mom is a ROCKSTAR, and has this amazing stash of every shape and size of clear bags, from www.clearbags.com  She helped me a TON to get ready for the craft fair, because she's done about a thousand of them! She gave me these cutie patootie skinny bags, and the idea to do these little M&M treats.  I used fall M&M's, and just added little tags and ribbon.  I think they would make darling Thanksgiving table favors/decor. . .or party favors.  Or Halloween treats! Or the perfect add-on to a birthday gift!

  1. I would think .50 each would be more than fair. Or do a "special" at 3 for $1.25.

    I think you're gonna do well at the craft fair. You've got a nice selection of goodies.

  2. The candy pails are darling, especially the princess monster. I would do two of the M&M sticks for $1. I would pick up several at that price and I think 50 cents each should cover your cost plus time, right? Also if you do 2/$1, if someone's buying $4 or $9 of other stuff, s/he'll likely toss 2 tubes in to round up.

  3. way cute laura, i have seen these all over and i think it was 1.50 for just one so if you did 2 in a bag and charged only 1.00 i think you'd be out before you knew it. love those pals too, the stickers ARE perfect! good luck :)

    how about 1 for one stick or 3 for 2.00?

  4. I love the monsters on the pails. I am really digging cute little monsters lately. The fact that they don't particularly look like stickers is even better. Oh you've done so much to get ready for this fair. I hope you do well...I'm sure you'll do well!

  6. According to the description, this should be it - but the photo is misleading. http://www.clearbags.com/1-x-8-flap-crystal-clear-25x203.html

    Also, I found them here on Etsy:

    I hope that helps! :)
