What is selling at the craft fairs?

At my second craft fair this pre-holiday selling season I can tell you that buyers are being picky. They are not buying items you can find at Walmart or the Dollar Store. Take for example 2 women that were knitting and crocheting at the last craft fair and had a stack to scarfs they had made. Those scarfs were not selling. The price they were asking for them was only $3.00 each. The bottom line is that the Dollar Store is selling knitted scarfs fr only a dollar.

The more unusual items were selling. Handmade, stuffed, cartoon turkey sets were selling. T-shirts with sayings about the economy were selling. Buttons with funny saying on them were selling.

Uniqueness is selling this year.
