Hi there, I'm just starting up making party bags for childrens parties. I've ordered some stock and have more stuff to buy but basically what I'm doing is making party bags for various ages group and various prices so there will be a bag to suit all budgets. I just wanted to know what you guys think and if you think it is a good idea and might be successful or if you think I've gone quite mad and that no one in there right mind will buy them.
When someone gets in touch about the bags I have a list of the items that can go in and list of bags that are already decided what is going in and the prices of those bags. That way if they don't see a bag they like they can pick what they want in. Do you think this will work or have any suggestions on what might make it work better?
I was thinking of trying to sell them locally but I think if I advertise and post them it might make it take off a bit more. Any tips on where to advertise? I was going to put them on ebay but with ebay selling fees hen paypal handling fees it works out I'm making them for no profit.
Thanks for reading everyone and I'd really welcome any feedback.

So I ordered a bucket load more stock for these bags and now my printer has gone & died a death on me. Doh. I'll be taking it back to get it replaced so I can get my leaflets done this weekend. So excited. Lee had an awesome idea last night too. Doing little loot bottles for guides, scouts, brownies and cubs but make them in reusable bottles with compasses and stuff. He's really into all the outdoorsy stuff so hopefully we can do that soon too. My house is going to be full of party goods soon. Can't wait for the postman to arrive.

Thank you. I have seen a few but some are quite expensive and others have super naff toys. I know there'll be competition but I'm hoping it'll do ok. Not wanting huge trade. Just a little something to give me something to do and the money will be good for treats for the girls. Thank you for the good luck. I'm crossing my fingers but if it all goes wrong the girls will have a boat load of little toys to play with. Lol.

I'm hoping to set up a site but it may take me a week or so as I'm not very technical at all. Lol. I have posted on here an e.mail address to be sent the details when I get my stock all in. I was thinking about ebay but then by the time they take their money & paypal take their bit it's leaves me with a negaive. I'm not looking to make a huge profit just looking for something to do with my time and then if things go well I might look at doing something else when both the girls are at school. The e.mail is firstname.lastname@example.org If you drop me an e.mail I'll send you the list of party bag bits and I'll get some pictures. I just wanted to wait until stuff arrives rather then use someone elses stock photos that I've bought bits from cos I always think that's a bit cheeky. I'll send you the details and I'll be getting my dummies guide to websites tomorrow from Staples. Lol.
Thank you very much for the support and interest.
