I have a TONNE of spare craft supplies (leftovers, scraps, I don't know what I would do with this) Sort of stuff.  I would like to start an etsy store and list some of them,.  But I would like to offer them in some unique way. Mostly talking about fabric, but some beads and some other just random stuff.

2 questions
1) Do you think that supplies/scraps would sell
2) Do you have any unique ways to package them?

Supplies definitely sells - commercial and handmade.  Go ahead and list, you have nothing to lose except your 10 cents.

Good luck!

You probably don't need to do any fancy packaging for your supplies, but I do have a few thoughts:

You could sell lots of coordinating fabrics and add a paper band (with your logo, shop info, etc) to hold them together.

What could be really cool, now that I think about it is offering all kinds of stuff in the same color family as a lot. Say a pink lot would have some pink fabric, pink beads, pink ribbon, a pink zipper, etc. I can see that being very appealing... lots of crafters seem to have their favorite colors (I know I do) that end up being a theme in their work  Smiley

Not sure if that's what you were looking for, but best of luck!

Look! Round windows!
