    I saw your link at Marlin Forums (Dads81-DL)
    My son and I starting making cord for one of his boy scouts projects. Since then, we've been making quite a few. My wife has even joined in making items.
    My son and I take them to a few craft shows and that helps him earn some cash :)

    Welcome!
    How well do your items sell at craft shows?

    What items do you sell the most of?

    My son and I have been to 5 shows. The most I made one weekend was around $350. The least I made was a one day event , $120.
    95% of bracelets are Solomon or Cobra @ $6.00. Then price goes up depending on style, overall coard used.

    6$ for any cobra. Single or two color. Around here that's the most common knot. Other Solomon/cobra knots like the heart and river knots I found they'll pay $7....because they're " different".
    I have probably 150 bracelets pre made for shows. From sizes 7"- 10". Most common size is 8"-8 1/2".
