    I am getting ready to have eggs coming out my ears...about 2 doz a day. I'd like to sell to my neighbors and an wondering if anyone had designed an "eggs for sale" flyer that I could give them. If anyone has any that they have used in the past, please email to me if you don't mind. I am looking for inspiration...

    if this helps... when I was ready to sale eggs all I done was paint "fresh eggs" on a piece of particle board and stick it up by the road.. think it costed $2.00 for the spray paint (I used two colors) and had to take the sign down a week later.. there was so many ppl wanting eggs I just couldnt keep up.. they still come for eggs and the sign has been down for a long time.. and it was an ugly sign if I do say so myself...lol...

    I just asked around the office and word of mouth gave me way too many buyers. I now have a waiting list for eggs, some have been on it years, just in case I have an extra dozen. I have 5 regular customers.

    Good luck, it's fun to share your eggs! [​IMG]

    My peeps aren't even laying yet and I have people who want any extras we get. What's a fair price? I know what stores charge for free-range organic eggs, and was considering a price between that and industrial eggs.
    Also, when you sell eggs do you ask buyers to supply their own egg cartons?

    When I give my eggs away to friends I ask for the empty carton and if they want more I ask them to bring a empty. Works out good as they are hard to find & I don't want to have to buy them.

    Quote:Unfortunately I can't put a sign out...I live in downtown Mount Airy. Most of my neighbors are in apartments or condos (transient), so there isn't a lot of neighborhood bonding. I was going to design a flyer and put it in my nearest neighbors mailboxes. What I has hoping for was some chicken or egg clip art. I haven't found any on the internet.

    I have a question about putting a sign by the road: Don't people show up at all hours? I feel like I would have to be on guard all the time if people will be knocking on the door. What if I'm in the shower or something???

    Maybe I'm just a basketcase anyway....[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They dont show up late if thats what you mean.. I have some that calls to see if I have any available.. they usually show up early in the day.. if I wanna go somewhere they can come back.. I dont feel on guard... I had to buy egg cartons , misprints, (way to many, I thought about selling some) but they were cheap.. and instead of asking 1.00 a dozen because I had to buy cartons I ask 1.25 .. but believe it or not most of my customers freely give me $1.50-2.00.. I dont argue..lol..

    Heres where I got my cartons..

    Oh sorry.. you wanted clip art.. I found this somewhere and saved cause I thought it was cute...
