Anyone have any great crafts they make and sell? I love crafts but am not all that great at them. But I would love to find something I could sell on ebay and other places. I'm also always looking for things to sell as fundraisers for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society as I am with their Team in Training program over and over. So, give me what you got! =)

I make magnetic jewelry and to alot of flea markets and craft shows. I make it to customers specification using birthstone crystals. It started has a hobby and turned into a profitable business. I dont sell them on ebay i have enough just with the customer I already have.

Who do you sell to? Friends, family? I ask because I don't know many people in my area and so I think it would be hard just to sell to people I know. Do you have any photos of stuff you have done? Is there any way for you to email me or post pics? I would love to see. Thanks.

I've made jewelry items out of bread dough (bread with glue in it). Hairpins, clips, earrings, pins. I've never sold them on ebay but have put them in local boutiques with success. I've also crocheted ripped up plastic bags into bags and people would ask me to buy them. I just sold them to friends and family never tried anywhere else. I'd suggest doing some research on ebay and see what's selling and compare that to what you have the skills to make yourself. I've seen many different items from crocheted/knitted dishcloths to denim purses made from old jeans. I'm sure you can find something that you can do on your own.
