    Are they price to high? I've gone by what I've seen in the craft sales here. Maybe craft sales here are pricey? Anybody, input greatly appreciated!

    If that is painted and not a decal, I don't think they are too high.

    If you can fold the bags in such a way as not to crease the picture, you could use a vinyl or other heavy envelope to mail to decrease the mailing cost. Maybe someone might want one if it didn't nearly double the price just to have it mailed.

    I have several totes and use them at the stores all the time.

    It's painted.

    I have 6 and love them. I'll have to look into whatelse I can get to mail them. Post office was really busy when I was in and a new girl was at the counter-go figure.

    Of course, if folded to mail then it would be a crease in there all the time. I have them so they fold into thirds with the bottom tucking up and then the body folded in half. With the way I'm set to mail them there wouldn't need to be another crease.

    Thanks for the input, hoosier. Maybe it's just the economy too.

    Quote:I did 2 of them just for deer hunters! They are heat safe and have felt feet so they won't scratch your table.
