Marketplace: Collections and Groupings

Peaches gift collections: cigar box keepsake, small round keepsake, small votive lamp and tile.

When setting up I decided to group different gift items into collections with the same or similar artwork and sell them as a package with a discount on the total if someone buys the whole group. Each item is fairly popular and I regularly make new keepsakes and lamps so the shape might be a little different from what you see—a different cigar box, small keepsake or jar.

I only make the tiles in large groups every few months, though, so if the tile sells separately that wouldn’t be part of the grouping until I make more. I keep trying to devise a quicker way to make new tiles!

The Peaches and Peonies collection:

This collection includes:

  • a vintage cigar box keepsake box
  • a small round keepsake box
  • a small votive lamp
  • a tile

The lamp is $20.00, the other three items are $15.00 each, so the total would be $65.00, but I keep the lamp at $20.00 and each other item reduced to $10.00 when you buy them all, so the total would be $50.00.

Here is the Lucy collection:

The Lucy gift grouping: small square keepsake, large votive lamp and tile.

This collection includes:

  • a small square keepsake box
  • a large votive lamp
  • a tile

The lamp is $20.00, the other three items are $15.00 each, so the total would be $50.00, but I keep the lamp at $20.00 and each other item reduced to $10.00 when you buy them all, so the total would be $40.00.

Here is the Sienna collection for tortie lovers:

This collection includes:

  • a vintage cigar box keepsake box*
  • a small votive lamp
  • a tile

*Sienna’s vintage cigar box keepsakes are hard to keep in stock! I didn’t have one when I took these photos, but I’ve decided to make two or three so I always have one on hand. Below is a photo of one of the recent ones I made and sold.

The lamp is $20.00, the other three items are $15.00 each, so the total would be $50.00, but I keep the lamp at $20.00 and each other item reduced to $10.00 when you buy them all, so the total would be $40.00.

Interested in a grouping of gifts?

If you can’t come to the farmers market or any other event and you are interested in one of these groupings, just let me know. When I’ve added them to my website in the past it’s never come to anything, and since it’s time-consuming to do that and promote it I don’t add them anymore. However, I do sometimes include them in my bimonthly Creative Cat Preview Newsletter, so sign up for that if you want to have another chance at a grouping.
