I recently hosted my first vendor booth at a farmer's market, and had quite a few cookies left over afterwards. So I put them up on my site a couple days later at discounted prices. But I know that some of the people who bought cookies from me at the market follow my page and — though no one mentioned it — I couldn't help but wonder if it's fair to them that the cookie they bought a few days ago for $3 is now being sold for $2.
I guess my questions are: At what point are leftover cookies old enough to discount them? And how much of a discount do you think is appropriate? Also, if you don't sell your leftovers, what DO you do with them? Just eat them?
Have you thought of giving the cookies to your local soup kitchen. Most churchs have lunches for the underpriveleged. I donate to the homeless and homeless Veterans. You should see their faces light up when they receive a beautifully decorated cookie. Little Children also must take advantage of these free lunches and LOVE the cookies. Sugar cookies freeze very well and stay tasting good for quite awhile, so cookies donated after being frozen are 'good as new'. These people are deserving of your beautiful cookies.
