Raffle items!!! OR NOT :(

EDIT: Well, poop.

My uncle pointed out that he thought it was illegal to sell raffle tickets, so I did some research online - which led to a massive headache caused by trying to decipher all the legalease.

Unfortunately, he's right. Apparently in the state of Ohio, selling raffle tickets is illegal, unless you are a non-profit and obtain a license. (And pay a hefty fee.)

If I continue with my raffle and get caught, it's a misdemeanor of the first degree.


So, what do I do with my raffle items? :(

(I just got the necklaces in the mail this morning, too. They're very pretty!)

I guess I could just put set prices on everything... first come, first serve for The Internets and what doesn't sell will go in the yardsale.

I am sad.

I have 4 weekends left until our fundraiser/garage sale and I am starting to feel the pressure of getting everything ready. Add to that the fact that we are helping out some family friends so now have temporary new roommates and the garden needs harvested and life is i-n-s-a-n-e lately.

  1. Here from lfca! There has to be a way around this- maybe just a "suggested donation" and a giveaway? I'm sure people would make a donation, like via paypal. Good luck!
