    Thanks for all the ideas guys! It's a pretty small affair, and there's usually not enough vendors to really qualify it as a farmer's market, but it's been really nice in the past and I want to try and add to the variety. Heck, might even skip classes in the name of promoting it! :D Of course, this means I get to spend money on ribbons and webbing and stuff... Good thing I got paid!

    Mug rugs, pillow cases, potholders, luggage tags, table runners, dog toys, dog treats, cloth shopping bags, placemats, purses made from little boys overalls (cut the legs off and sew across the bottom, suspenders are handles. add buttons, yoyos, extra pockets, linings if desired). Also quilted postcards, coasters, candle mats, etc.

    You could also use the idea of a kindle cover to make laptop covers.
