We are having a craft show at our school in December and a friend of mine is a newbie to craft shows. She has designed and made some darling bandanna-type thingies for dog collars -- they don't tie around, you feed the collar through a loop of fabric. I can't describe very well, but she has done a variety of sizes and darling fabrics. But she's getting cold feet about doing a booth, and I'm trying to give her ideas of what else she could do that would be pet-related. We talked about doggie treats/biscuits (I have a whole book of dog treat recipes), but I'm stumped after that. Anyone seen anything that sold well?

schnuckiputzi is German for "something adorably cute" -- try it on your Valentine.

I don't have experience with how these would sell, but I think they're frickin adorable... pet scarves! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10927540

Also, I don't know what kind of skill level your friend has, but what about pet beds? You could even make little charms for their collars (shrinky dink?)

I just finished up a craft show and purchased some adorable wreaths made out of dog biscuits.  The finished product is about 4 inches diameter and the little biscuits are bone shaped and about 1 1/2 inches long.  It looks like they poked a hole through the middle of them and wired them together in a wreath shape and put a purchased red bow at the top.  I got them for my IL's because they just LOVE their dogs.  I'm guessing they'll get the wreath (minus the wire and bows) as a Christmas gift?  I'll let them decide.

They sold them for $3.75 each and I think they sold out.   They also had a bunch of cotton dog scarves for sale that many customers also picked up.  I can't remember how much they were... not more than $10 though.

Hope this gives you some ideas!

If she's willing to step away from just dogs, simple cat toys would probably go down well - catnip mice, feather danglers etc.

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.

I end up buying at least one cat toy at every craft show I go to, even if I don't buy anything for myself! Tongue

What about gift baskets?  Those are usually popular.  You could fill them with doggie/ kitty treats, toys, a little bandana, etc.  You could also do a "healty pet" pack, like get some of those pet treats that clean the pets' teeth, a tube of hairball ointment, brush/ comb, etc, and sew up some cute fabric pouches for them?
