Turning trash into treasure, would you buy it?

First of all I apologise if this post is in the wrong section.

So, I'm looking to make some money to help me save up for a horse. But before that I wanted to ask you if you would actually buy or want one of my ideas, because there is no point in me making them and then no one buying them. I would appreciate any helpful comments or ideas. Here are my ideas:

Using old reins and saddle blankets to make a bag/backpack
Turning bits into belts, bracelets, key rings and necklaces
Making plaited browband bracelets and necklaces
Turing old stirrups into clocks and speakers
Old rugs into quilts
Making fancy and funky halters, lead ropes and boots
Making horse photo frames

I'm not even sure if my ideas will work :/ but I'll give them ago

I think they're all very creative =] I especially love the backpack idea, that is too cute!

All neat ideas. I would be most interested in the bag/backpack, the stirrups into a clock, the quilts and picture frames, personally. Good luck!!

Keep an eye out for old tack, at sales etc you can sometimes buy mixed boxes, you can clean up and sell the good stuff, and re purpose anything that is to far gone. It's a fun way of making money.

Oh, look at turning leather strap good into dog collars as well

I am not in the least interested in the brow bands. I personally think everyone is making them, and they pretty much look homemade IMO. (No offense meant to anyone).

The rest of the things sound interesting, and depending on what they looked like, they might be something I would be interested in.
