I’ve been making things like crazy for the past 3 weeks, and as soon as my crafting got to an end, what I made wasn’t much. It sure did look like a lot while it wasn’t all put together!
So far I have 8 packs of ‘Retro Stationery’, loose stationery paper, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, record bowls, stained glass candle holders, & keychains…I think that’s it.
What took up most of my time was the stationery. It looks really neat and I hope people buy it.
What are some good, cheap, easy ideas to make a few extra bucks?
What would you make from regular household items?
I am also willing to go to Walmart or somewhere if I have to, but I don’t have a car at the moment.

Thank you all for your help! I really appreciate it!

Try making some magnets, or use some felt and make some cute little pins/broaches. These are quick and easy and that keeps that at a low selling price (great for craft fairs!). I'm not sure if you're a stitcher or not, but I make simple felt wallets and little pin cushions for craft fairs, and they always sell very well.

I'll let you know if I can think of anything else.

Good luck!  Smiley

I knew I was forgetting something! I made at least 100 magnets. I could try some things out of felt. I never thought of that. Also, I remember an easy way to make pin cushions without any sewing. We made them when I was in 9th grade in home ec.
Thank you for refreshing my memory! I'm going to go cut up some cloth and get my glue gun out!  Grin
