Sounds good to me.
If I understand this correctly, I assign myself a code number and enter it on all the tickets... this would be a derivative of my initials or whatever.
Then I create a sequence of inventory control numbers... again of my own choosing and enter it on the tags.
I also duplicate the list of inventory control numbers probably matching a physical description of the item to sell.
I maintain that
list of items for my own records.
When I attend GF, I give you the $20.00 plus the items to sell.
When I pick up my items, you return the bottom portion of the tag for those items that I sold.
That enables me to remove them from my inventory list and calculate what I sold.
I pick up my unsold items.
At some point, the CGS will mail me a cheque for the total sold, less 10% retained by CGS.
Hopefully I now have it clear.
Thanks for the explanation... enjoy your holiday... I am sooo jealous!

I think there has been some confusion about the store. Unfortunately there is an inventory sheet that was
used the first year and we found that it was more trouble than anything. It got put in the newsletter and on the web site by accident and it wasn't to be used again.
Therefor, to clear things up, I don't need to know what you are bringing to sell but each item MUST have a filled out price tag on it (you can print them from the web site). The bottom of the price tag is cut off and returned to you with your cheque so that you know what sold. Therefor on the tag you need to write your ID code (three letters, usually your initials but whatever you want) and an inventory number for your own records, and the price you want it sold for. Remember that 10% of your sale will go
to CGS so price accordingly.
I run them through my sewing machine with no thread to perforate on the line to make it easier to remove the bottom but it isn't required. We can cut it with scissors if you don't have a sewing machine to do this with. This bottom section is returned to you with your cheque for you profits.
Also, The cheque for $20 to the Canadian Gourd Society for participating in the store can be given to me
at gourdfest if that is easier for you.
The only fear is that someone else may choose the same 3 letter code as you, but it is highly unlikely.
I'm heading out on Monday for a month long drive in our new RV. Going west. I will be stopping at McDonalds (as they have WiFi) periodically to check my emails so if I confused anyone, I hope I'll be able to clear things up then.
Have a great August everyone and I'll see you in September, Debby
