Don, I have found those that people only want to spend $25 or so per purchase are usually classified as craft fairs and even arts and craft fairs.


This is that conversation that comes up all the time.
You need to choose the proper venue for the quality of your work and what you realistically expect out of it.
Chris's booth display alone is nicer than some products I've seen for sale at "craft fairs"
Different venues, different price ranges, different products.
BTW, the display looks good, it would be nice to see a photo of it set up at a venue for the full effect.

Next show i do i plan on taking some pictures.  I take an assortment of things to these shows.  I usually have things from $25 pens up to the $300 range.  Last October i did a show at the same place as my May show coming up and i did pretty well.  My biggest selling item was $25 ornaments that take little time to make using all my scraps.  I must have made $300 on them.  I did sell a couple of higher price things as well.  This time of year my low priced items will be bottle stoppers.  Hopefully they will fly off the shelves just as well.
