Death of a Cupcake

26th November 2008

Today i spent all day printing my Death of a Cupcake book to put in the christmas show. I have priced it at £3.50 but i have never done this before so i am testing the waters. I guess I will find out if i have put the price up too high or whether i could even price it higher? They take 33% commission and the books cost 50p each to make so its not like i will be making that much of a profit on each one. I was thinking of putting a ribbon round each one but i ran out of time. I went into the gallery today and everything seems to be almost up. There’s some really good stuff like handmade dolls and christmas cards. Im looking forward to the opening tomorrow night.
