99 Things to Make and Sell at Fetes or Markets

Posted by admin on

When you’re looking for ideas and inspiration for things to make and sell at a craft stall it can be useful to have a huge list of ideas in front of you. Perhaps you have some fabric and you’re wondering what to make with it, perhaps you’ve got a jar of beads or buttons and don’t know what you can do with them, or maybe you’re looking for something a little different to make this year.

I haven’t given specific links for most of these – you will get further with a quick Google or Pinterest search once an idea takes your fancy, and you will be swamped with options. Happy crafting!
