Smile Opinions please! =]

Didn't know where else to put this hehe so I figured here was excellent.
If I were to sell horse related items at a craft fair type thing, what would you be looking for or most likely to buy?
For example: rhythm beads, a hand painted saddle pad, perhaps something more crafty and less horse use-able like a wall hanging of painted horse shoes. Anything you can think of, what would you like to see best?
Thank you for your time and opinions!

How about homemade rope halters? Or book stands/coat wall-hanger type things made from horse shoes. If those are too difficult (the coat hangers might be lol) then perhaps you could paint horse designs on some picture frames (make sure it's paint that wont wash off though!), or welcome-type signs with quirky slogans. EX: I have one that says "horse lovers are stable people" he he.
If I think of any more I will let ya know...

Cool, thank you very much! =D I think I could manage a coat rack with horse shoes, or a shelf of sorts. All very good ideas, =]

Umm I would have to say the hand painted saddle pads if you are a good artist?

I would like to think so hehe, I have other threads with my art or it's at Home - Spirit of the Horse Pet Portraits if you are interested. Should the saddle pads be made available in a variety of colors or just white with black images?

I would TOTALLY be into into custom designed halters. They sell these REALLY awesome dog and cat collars at the vet clinic around the corner. They are a very durable cotton, triple or double stitched, and made with really neat patterns or textures. I have been REALLY wanting something like that for my horse. And, you could do a 'halter bridal' with matching reins and or lead ropes as well as a matching pad (just get a regular pad and use fabric glue and a sewing machine)

You can do the same thing with super cheap halters and just glue and sew (both, not one or the other) the more interesting patterned fabric over it that could also go on nylon tack accessories like breast collars and so on.

You can also make little strands of beads with a clasp that people can put on their saddles, halters, bridals or key rings. Add a tiny rubber band and you have a strand of nifty main or tail beads!!! (Hmmm...thinking of this makes me want to do it!) I'm not just talking about those cheezy plastic beads though, I'm talking about the nicer glass, wood, or 'decorative' type beads.

Or, you can totally 'bedazzle' blankets and halters with horse's names, breeds or even "I love my rider" kind of stuff


I'm a crafty and artistic person and have been thinking of doing something similar, but I never do...I'm such a chicken lol

Lol those are all great ideas? Do sewing machines pull off sewing through that nylon webbing well though? I don't have one my mom does and I do NOT want to break it hahah that would be disastrous. I could always use fabric paints for desings matching the halters leads reins and saddle pads, but I would have to find a heavy duty paint, any body know a good kind?

I don't know if this would be a good idea, but I know it's a good gift idea. You could probably sell them to I bet. But your work is very nice so what I did last christmas was made a calendar of my paintings (one for every month). My family loved it. I had them made at walmart but I bet there's a cheaper way...
Still thinking! Lol

Yet another good idea, going along with that, christmas and birthday cards would be cool too I bet.
