Wooden Photo Albums - Point of Purchase Sales

With craft show season fully upon us, I've been coming up with more ideas for point of purchase items. Online I make most of my sales on personalized items. People know they will have to wait for their item to arrive, so why not wait a couple extra days and have it personalized! But at shows, people want to take their item with them. They want it now and they don't want to wait on shipping.

Knowing this, I've starting adding new items to my show inventory and started adding them to my shop as well. I blogged about my new recipe book designs last month and these have done well. I've sold a few online and I hope to sell more at my shows as well.

My most recent line of  point of purchase items are my Wooden Photo Albums. I've added three new designs so far and, as always, have ideas for so many more! My Woodland themed books have done very well, so I thought a photo album would be a good next step. I've sold these mainly as baby albums, but I think they'd also be good for camping photos or just fun photos.

I'm really excited about the Grandma's Brag Book. It's an item I've wanted to make for a while, but hadn't come up with all the pieces yet. I love that the wood covers make it ideal for grandma's with grandsons and daughters. No pink or blue to choose from...it's perfect for everyone :) I'm thinking I need a Grandpa's brag book next.

I also added a Holiday Memories book as well. Christmas is one season where we always take a lot of photos, so this book would be great! I might need one for each year!

 Some other ideas I'm throwing around are Disney photo albums with autograph pages as well. And wedding photo albums that can be bought as a point of purchase item or personalized as well. I love that the ideas are endless with these!

  7. I love the holiday memories one most of all, even though all are pretty.

    You know, I am reading you like a good textbook on marketing ) you could charge for reading your bog, and I think I would pay.

  8. What about a wedding memories album, something small the bride/groom can carry around to show off their photos? If they get other wedding items from you, this would be the perfect addition.

  12. All of these designs are so inspired! I think that Disney and wedding albums would be great, too, as both gifts and for families to purchase before trips or events. I hope that they do well at your holiday shows this year.
