Default Best seller ideas-craft fair

What sorts of things have you made and sold at craft fairs or bazaars that were most successful? Also, what did you charge for them?

I haven't sold anything at a craft sale with stamping, but.... I just made some candles with the tissue paper - so easy and beautiful. Get the 6" pillar candles at a Dollar Tree store or go to Walmart. They have the huge 4-wick pillar candles for $4.88!!! I also found beautiful silver pedestal candle holders at the Family Dollar store for $1-2. I think you could really sell some of these. They're so elegant and cheap to make. Bag them up in a cello bag and tie some ribbon/fibers on top with a gift tag. Great for the holiday season!


If you email me directly - I'll send you a photo of a candle and matching gift bag I just made using Lovely Leaves.

I've wondered the same thing, so I'm hoping someone posts an answer.

I haven't done a craft fair, but if I did, I would be sure to make some coasters or trivets. Excluding ink and stamps, the coasters would cost you about $3 to make for a set of four. You could do a trivet for less than that since those tiles cost about 50 cents each (if you back with cork, that'll be your biggest expense.

Some of my customers have had great success with Snowman Soup and gingerbread man pins, mostly because they were priced low (their opinion of why they sold).

You can make a really pretty lapel pin (or stick pin) using Lovely Leaves, polyshrink and a gold-leafing pen. Wine-glass charms are another idea.

One of these days I'm going to do a fair, but I've got to find the time first.
