Best Sellers for Craft Shows

Earlier this week I posted all about how to create inventory for a craft show. We touched briefly on how to decide which items to make, but today I want to share some of the top selling items that you can make for your craft shows. I called on the help of some of my maker friends and asked them to send me their best selling items. I'll have links to the patterns as well so if you want to add some of these items to your market list you can.
