i'm unemployed at the moment so i'm sewing and crocheting stuff to take to the flea market (it's inside and very nice)
once i get enough to sell --i can rent a booth for the weekend. hopefully by easter i'll have enough --if not by summer and hopefully in the meantime
i can find a job. even if i do get a job--i'm still planning on doing this

That's a good idea. I know Barb (mom of six) does craft fairs and I think she does pretty good at it, at least she sure sews up a ton of stuff for them! Her little ponchos are adorable. Good for you to have the ambition to work at something like this. You never know where it may lead, heck, you may end up designing a clothing line!

More power to you. My DSIL, is doing a craft business by taking hand crafted things on consignment and taking them to craft shows/fairs. She is trying to odset my DBIL loss of income. He has been out of work a few weeks. DSIl works a full time job and her consignment/craft fair business as a sideline. DBIL goes along and does face painting. I hope you find you craft profitable and I hope your job search is successful.
