  • Summer dresses! I don't know what the deal is with all the weird color summer dresses that the stores are selling now but I would love to find some nice normal and not see through summer dresses for myself! Kids have correct summer dresses but as you get into adults you either have funky colored party dresses or granny dresses. yuck!

  • I'd say B. I buy babylegs from an etsy shop & I've bought a pillowcase dress from a fellow baby mama from babycenter.

  • Hair accessories I think

  • I wouldn't buy A. The market for those is already super saturated and I have short hair so no clips needed.

    B maybe if I could send in my measurements and have it customized to my body. Otherwise no.

    C depending on the fabric choices. And definitely the quality of the work.

  • Clothing. Mostly children's. Particularly things that re hard to find in stores. Like Princess costumes made of actual fabric and not plastic-like material. Cute dresses, sweaters for boys and girls.

  • The only home made things I HAVE bought online, I now make to sell, so I don't buy them now... But cloth items - diapers, fem pads, breast pads, that kind of thing... I also buy home made metaphysical items, but that's kinda a niche market.

  • I pretty much make my own handmade items.

  • Hair bows!
    But now that my friend and I make them, we no longer have to buy them!
