  • Do what my grandmother does. Make somethings that YOU know how to make and show them to people or make a site then you can make them as the orders come in. My grandmother also makes alot of those bead christmas orniments they sell pretty good for her.

  • I'm not crafty at ALL so I'll tell you what I love to buy. I adore any crocheted or knit blankets, hat/mitten sets, scarves, kid sweaters, baby blankets, etc. My grandmother used to make them but she's long gone now. Whenever the craft sales come around to the schools I make a beeline for the homemade knit items because I don't have anyone to make them anymore. they usually sell very well too.
