 for vases, platters and crafts that could be used for a fruit and veggie tray, or flower vases or any country craft that can be used lets say in a farmers market sale. I am looking into wreaths too. pics would help but ideas in general are needed.

I like to search on ebay's ended listings to find things that sold and for the amounts they fetched.

About 23 yrs ago, lol.... I made like 75 wreaths, country style to sell @ a craft fair in MS.  I purchased the straw wreaths @ Walmart & the decorated them to the hilt. (Halloween, T/G, Christmas themed)... Sad to report I only sold like 5.  Ugh, I guess the economy or the interest just wasn't there.  

I hope you have better luck!!!!

Hmm, maybe look into small baskets to fill with fruit/veggies, then add floral pics....like for Halloween, Get Well, T/G, etc.  Add pretty bows with coordinting ribbons.   Pics can be found @ Walmart or Michael's for about a dollar.  Allow the patron to choose the pic, too.

Michael's offers coupons in Sunday paper & online too.

Another cute idea, have a jar with flower pencils (silk flower(s) taped to the end of pens)  for the patron to use, it wll add whimsy & creativity to the check-out desk, & keep your pens from walking off, lol 

Also, depending upon your budget, could have name & phone # of your business put on the pens..... for like a freebie to the first 50 patrons.

Another idea....have a tray of like bakery cookies or doughnuts to sample which sometimes helps lure folks to your area of sale....like in a farmer's market with many competing booths to choose from.

We may be able to help you better if you gave more information. Are you looking to sell veggies at a farmer's market or sell crafts?

I would definitely hit up the thrift stores for vases and trays. Pinterest has some terrific ideas on how to jazz up old vases. You could also do something with recycled cans sans the labels. Covering them with jute or rope/ribbon is cute. When Easter comes, be sure to pick up all the leftover baskets when they go on sale. You can also look for things on Freecycle. It is a great website for getting free stuff.
