15 Quick and Easy Holiday Items to Sell in Your Craft Business

by Jennifer

Holiday CraftsLisa Lam, of www.u-handbag.com, has a great article on the Craft::Boom site about some quick and easy holiday items you can make and sell this holiday season. Basically, Lisa has a list of items that should do well over the holiday shopping season. You can get more detail by visiting the article, but here's her list:

  1. Garlands
  2. Mobiles
  3. Ornaments/Decorations
  4. Tree Ornaments
  5. Candle Holders
  6. Bags, Purses, or Clutches
  7. Napkin Rings, Place Mats, and Seating Card Holders
  8. Scented Candles, Potpourri, Ornaments, and Mini Pillows
  9. Christmas Cards and Wrapping Paper
  10. Christmas Stockings
  11. Baby Bibs, Soft Toys, Booties, and Mittens
  12. Doggie Jackets
  13. Scarves, Mittens, Socks, Hats, and Slippers
  14. Hair Decorations
  15. Brooches and Corsages

In the article, Lisa suggests that you minimize the Santa Claus and Christmas Tree themed items, and focus more on the winter theme as this has a broader appeal, and is much longer lived than the Christmas holiday.

If you're looking for some great ideas for some holiday craft fairs, or on your own online craft site, then check out Lisa's article on Craft::Boom.

Happy Crafting!

P.S. I just wanted to let you know that the photo of the handmade ornaments in this post is from Robyn Goodwin of www.3hipsisters.com, run by Robyn and her two sisters (hence, the name of the site).  They offer some incredible handmade crafts, and if you're looking for a unique gift, check out their site!

Hey Chuck, if you’re going to use one of my pictures the least you could do is provide a link to me. Yes, it is hand made by me, and photographed by me.

Hello chronicler. I linked to the flickr.com page where you have the photo posted. But, if there is a better place to link to, let me know. Or, if you’d like, I can put the link at the end of the post or in the comments. Just let me know.

And, I checked the picture at flickr.com. It’s posted under the Creative Commons license, and I’ve attributed the author via the link back to the flickr page. Just let me know what else you’d like me to do.

Thanks,
Chuck
