Since May was born I’ve barely had time to reborn but still have a load of kits to do so have decided now she is bigger once summer comes I should have more time on my hands. I don’t want to travel far so instead of doing a doll show I think a local craft fair in October or November would be my most realistic goal.
I’ve bought a few terry towelling baby bath supports (£1.24 each in Tescos!) to display them without the bulk of cushions for transporting and a dozen baby brush sets at 36p which I will repackage and put in gift bags with some nappies and other bits. I’m going to keep a spreadsheet of how much the materials cost to make them to keep track.
My only worries now are my reborns will be quite highly priced compared to other craft items so I think I need a few lower cost items (other than the gift bags and bald babies), do I do birth certificates for the babies and do I assemble them all on the same day so they are ‘newer’ than if I assemble them as I go? whats the politest way of stopping people (especially children) mauling my babies? how do people take their babies home? and should I offer layaway?
Any advice greatfully received
