I just posted something new in my shop and I'm pretty excited about it! I've always been a big fan of surprise prizes. I always made sure I had a quarter or two with me when I went to the grocery store with my mom as a kid. The gumball machines were always awaiting me and an out of order sign was enough of a disappointment to put me off for the rest of the day. I still keep my gumball machine treasures with me in a big jar...I love looking and sorting through them from time to time.
Well...I can't put up a gumball machine, but I have been taken with the idea of party crackers for quite some time as well. They provide a fabulous surprise and you can fit more goodies in them than you can in those tiny plastic bubbles. I didn't live in the era of party crackers (such a shame!), but wanted to treat my customers with something fun and special! Each of these party crackers hides a mini spun cotton ornament. Will it be a devil? A ghost? A pumpkin girl? A slithering black octopus? Who knows? And that's the fun of it! I also sneaked a few extra treats (including gumball machine prizes!) in each cracker.
I am posting them in my Etsy store, but there are a limited amount available. Can't wait to hear the gasps and sighs as people discover what treat they are prized with! :)
And on another note...tomorrow will be my 100th post!! I can't believe I've posted that many times already. So to celebrate my surprise and disbelief...I'll be having a giveaway! Be sure to come by tomorrow and sign up! :)
