Years Ago
I Used To Make Chests, Boxes, Turnings And Carvings
Sold Everything I Put Up For Sale
(Man, Women Will Buy Anything)
But Life Gets In The Way

Well, I'm Gonna Fire Up Again
There's An Arty District Just Down The Road In Parkville, Mo.
Lots Of Festivals And Such
I Can Put My Sales In There

But I Need Some Impulse Buys
That Can Be Quick To Do And Cheap To Move

Here's Something I Just Found
I Bet I Could Knock One Out Every 20min:

I Used To Do Coin Cut-Outs, And Sold Plenty
But It's Labor Intensive, So I Won't Do It Anymore:

Well, Maybe For Belt Buckles Or Bracelets

Here's something I used to enjoy doing, and they can sell for quite a bit of money, if you're any good at it. I also find it very relaxing. Patterns are easy to find, or you can easily make your own.

No. It's string art. Get a piece of wood, cover it with your fabric of choice. Then you pound in some nails in a particular pattern, then run the thread between the nails. Some of them are really stunning. This one, for example, is really nice.

I machine replacement parts for obsolete equiptment. I think over 2/3 of American manufactures are gone! Out of business! But the few small companies struggling to survive still need parts. My friends won't believe I am retired?

Latch hook rugs, Leather tooling are about the only things I enjoy doing. My husband has built several trikes and right now is working on a impeller for pumping oil on his lath.

Karenter,

Looks like a fine idea and should sell a bunch of them.. The coin cut out is great, but I can picture the time needed as a problem.. Good idea..

Lot of other good ideas in the responses.. good craft men and women are still to be found...

I Think I May Have Too Many Interests

I Have Raw Jade I Bought In Wyoming
And Rocks From All Over The West I Need To Get On
There's An Opal Mine In NW Nevada I'd Like To Visit

Got A Couple Bolts Of Leather

Got A Full Wood Shop

And Designs On A New Chain-Saw This Spring
Can't Miss Fishin' Season And My Lures....

This Retirement Stuff Is A Lot Of Work....

I would love to get back into making stuff, but my computer has taken over my life. If breathing wasn't automatic, I'd be dead, since my computer occupies all of my attention.

Alas! It's too late for me. Save yourself, if you can.
