Question *Craft Show Spinoff* What ONE thing would you make?

If you could only make one thing for a craft show/fair what would it be? What sells best for you? Do you have any way cool ideas that some of us might be in the dark about? This doesn't have to be just papercrafting! My sister paints scenes on the glass of old windows! She gets windows for free, does something she loves (paints), and makes a profit from it. Personally, painting is not my forte, but it might be someone elses! So share some ideas! We would all appreciate them!

Tile coasters. My mom makes them for a craft shop (with stamps from companies with liberal Angel policies) and they really sell well. Simple designs seem to work the best.
Good luck!

Knitted cuff gloves always sell out. They are pretty labor intensive, but I enjoy making them. You buy those Magic Gloves (really little but stretch a lot) and then I knit a little cuff on them with fancy yarn. I sell them for $7 each, and I have sold every pair I could make for the last 3 years.

I'd do altered clipboards... they are DIRT cheap to make. I get the boards for $1 at the dollar store then use stuff I have on hand, plus Mod Podge. You can sell them for $10 easy and make a NICE profit.

Well, thank you babyboxermom! I do have to agree! He is my precious little baby boy! He is so spoiled rotten because he is probably my last (hubby says no more!) so I tend to coddle and hold just slightly too much. He always wants to be able to see me in the room and although he starts the night out in his bed, he usually ends up in ours!

Those gloves sound like such a great idea mahodgman! Too bad I can't knit! LOL

Cindy, what types of things do you put on your clip boards? Do you have any pictures to share? I'd love to see one...or two...or three!
