I like to make and sell old-school useful things, like dish cloths and towels and scarves and such because examining these items is a great way to see a slice of life in another time or place.
I am a complete history nerd, so that's where I take a lot of ideas for my store from. I have an obsession with the 1100-1400's, the 1800-1920's, 1940-45, and early hominid theory. I am somewhat of an anthropologist as well.
I'd love to make socks (but haven't learned how yet. but it's something i want to make and include in my inventory eventually), pillowcases and quilts and lunch bags. I love anything useful, mundane or common to make because I like to compare methods from different time periods. NERD! Haha.
I also love handknit or crocheted toys. I have a fondness for amigurumi and also tiny knit items like hearts, animals, etc. They have a kind of timelessness and I like that about them.
So I have things kind of in the pipeline right now as far as ideas go, but I would love to hear what customers would like to be able to find online as far as handknit/crocheted items go. Is there anything you have been trying to find but can't? Or is there something you have already seen but that can be done better?
Any and all ideas are much appreciated and will be taken into consideration!!! My brain hurts from so much thinking about the store so I would love some new perspectives on it.
