    If only I knew, what would sell - that I could make - that would be worth while me doing???????? In my experience, The price people want to pay for crafts does not cover the time and cost of making them........Everyone want's something for nothing..................

    Many items in craft stores are very expensive, but easy to copy and do yourself. Supplies can be purchased at 2nd hand shops, if you keep your eyes open, and buy things that can be used in new ways.You may have to stockpile 2nd hand supplies because cheap deals won't be there next week when you need it, so buy it when you see it. . Example: A bag of old, painted, or rusty hooks can be cleaned up, spray painted and added to a few distressed boards, and sold at an art fair. Or screw knobs onto a board or painted drawer front, and hang a set of kitchen towels on the knobs, or hang pot holders. I would go to craft stores such as Michael's, or Hobby Lobby to get ideas for what is currently popular to customers. Take pictures of items that you could make. Absolutly, do not rely on your memory. Take a photo! Then go on line and find art fairs. Usually $10.00 fee for a spot. Gifts at Christmas are popular. Women are your customers. Another idea is buy old lamps and spray paint them a new, trendy color. Add a new, inexpensive shade. I hope this will jump start your thinking of ideas yourself.
