The Oaxaca Lending Library is the oldest English Language Library in Mexico and they host an annual so-called "Flea Market" in February, as a fund raiser for their many projects. Most of the people selling at the market are expats who are downsizing and selling their collections of local crafts. There were many gorgeous textiles, as well as household goods, Mexican silver jewelry, woodwork etc.

I wanted to create some height. Nothing is more boring than a bunch of jewelry laid out flat on a table! I figured that making tented earrings cards would add some height. My first thought was to buy a couple of sheets of card stock to create the tented earring cards and hang tags. But all I could find here were complete reams of card stock! Uh, no way was I buying a whole ream! So instead, I bought a brown legal sized file folder and cut out earring "tents" from the folded side.
my web address on the back. I wrote the price in pesos and dollars on the bottom, front of the cards (Yes, I had to convert all my dollar prices.). Not elegant, but the earring cards were functional and stood up nicely on the table.
