Default Best bazaar seller?

My MIL is wanting to sew something new for her holiday craft bazaars this year. Does anyone have any suggestions??

Not sure what extent she wants to go with size of items but holiday mug rugs sold in packs of four flew out the doors at a guild bazaar last year. She can get really creative with appliqués or paper piecing stars...lots of options.

Dolly quilts. Small, quick and easy.

my family always clamors for more bowl cozies and our guild has great success with bags--either zipper topped or those that use a piece of metal tape measure to snap close.

Table runners - reversible for holidays. Tote bags. Pot holders.

I can offer what Did Not sell well at our last craft bazaar (2017):
Clip-on hand sanitizer caddies
Fabric coasters
Fabric bookmarks
10 minute table runners
Even when these items were marked down considerably, they still sat & were eventually donated.
Maybe this will save your MIL some aggravation. Good luck! I hope she does well.

Some thing that I always look for (and have never found) at a craft fair is a pouch for my cell phone. I would like to find one I could hang from my waist band, not belt. Don't know if they would be too time consuming to make or if they have been tried before and not sold.

My niece did craft fairs and Saturday markets. Her best seller was a zippered cosmetic pouch. Roughly 4x6". She sold them for $8 each in the Midwest.

I like the idea of a dolly quilt.
