As I continue to prepare for my first craft show, I find myself running into all the small things...that are a big deal! First, there's inventory of course. My large animal inventory is completed, now I'm focusing on making smaller items that I can crank out faster and have a lower price point. Because let's face it, not everyone wants to spend $40 on a stuffed animal! I get it. So I'm making miniature versions...like the little penguins.
For the sake of variety, I also started looking for smaller kitchen products. It finally dawned on me two days ago...magnets! They take very little time to make and I can sell them for $2 or $3 each, which is a great price point for market customers that want to grab something quick. I'm beyond excited about the possibilities of these magnets. So far I've only practiced flowers and breast cancer awareness ribbons, but the possibilities are endless. I can make anything small, stick an adhesive magnet on the back and be set. Experimenting is the best part!
The 1st of September sparked my love for the Fall season and then it hit me...time for seasonal products! I'm going to have pumpkins and candy corn galore, then on to reindeer and snowmen. I'm excited to introduce my Simply Hooked Collections next month. Back to the drawing board...
