I thought I'd let you know how my bagged kindling has been selling this fall and winter. In the past I've sold about 40 bundles, never more than 45. As of today I've sold 62 bags and still selling. And I raised the price this year from $5 to $6 to cover the cost of the bags.
I built a funny looking display box and hanger that lets the bags hang instead of laying them on the ground or a bench.
I filled all 100 bags I had and it looks like I might sell them all.


 

 

 

 
The firewood in the red bags I've only sold one. :-\

  Happy cutting.....Cutter

The kindling is a pretty good value. Even if you needed it every day, the bag of kindling looks like it would last a good week. The bag of firewood is only one fire that might last a couple hours. Surprised more sellers don't offer kindling like that.

Seems to me (I'm trying to be helpful ;D) that the bag price could come down? Not that I looked much either but in 30 seconds I saw burlap for less. Onion bags surely don't cost that much?

I'm not sure if you're talking about the bags themselves or the bags with the kindling in them.
The bags cost me 63 cents each tax and shipping included. If I could find burlap bags for close to the same price I'd be very interested.

Well, not really. I sold 70. They sold well to 70 and then just stopped. ??? I brought them into the barn and will keep them for next year. If anyone asks for kindling I'll be glad to sell them some but I won't display them outside till the fall.
