Hi Y’all! I’m having my first market in a few months!!! (WHOOP WHOOOOP!) I need to know what sell the best/what to make for it. I want to make sure I optimize my my time by making things that will sell. Also if you have any tips please let me know!!! I’m start this business up, so please if you would like follow me on Instagram! its still a work in progress but I would love the support <3
oooh good luck with the markets idk if you do amigurumi or granny squares/wearables. if you do amigurumi, the plushies are getting pretty popular i think. especially the bigger ones. but that will take longer to make than a bee for example. there’s lots of free patterns to choose from! you’d probably want a variety of stuff, and to cater to different customers!
I sell mostly amigurumi and the things that sold quickest/were most wanted at my last market were: any type of dinosaur (especially triceratops), sharks, axolotls, whales, octos, mini octo and jellyfish keychains, mushroom bois, and strawberry turtles.
It definitely depends on where you’re located and where your market is located though
Congrats on your first market!!! :]
Thank you everyone I really appreciate it luv you guys!!
Ooo fun! There’s a lot of us homeschooled crocheters on ribblr haha
smaller stuff like bees, octos, whales, bookmarks, worry worms, frogs and things
Congrats on your first market! When I tabled at a convention, I found it important to have a variety of price ranges, cause some ppl will pay 50+ for a big expensive item, and some people don’t wanna spend more than 10 bucks. I would say amigurumi is always popular, especially like animals that are generally regarded as staples when it comes to being cute, cats, bees, etc.
definitely mostly minis! they sell very very well! at my recent market, i sold out, but my mini bees sold the quickest!
Depending on the time of year seasonal things

Yup! At my last market the most wanted things were mid-sized $18-40 items.
My minis pretty much didn’t sell.
I had this one really sweet lady come up and buy a total of $117 worth of items from me.
Some people are looking to buy for their collections when at events, while others aren’t really looking/don’t have a lot of money on them so they might buy a keychain or a mini
I’m also having my first market soon - in less than a month! I have heard that mushy bois are popular, leggy froggys, jellyfish, and turtles are popular too.
