Gift Items?

Postby oldlogtrucker » Fri Oct 05, 2012 6:29 pm

We are new to the cnc art. We are looking for ideas that might sell well at Christmas Bazaars. We would like to use this as an advertising tool but cannot decide what might be a hot item that is priced under 20.00. We need to get something manufactured quickly.
Anyone have any ideas or experiences they would like to share??
Thanks Bill & Kathy

I made a bunch of inlay keychains for a girl's camp that I sold for $6 each. You could make up something similar with a different inlay, tie a little ribbon in it to use as a Christmas tree decoration. I made up a little jig, and did 52 of these at a time. About 4 hours of machine time, and a couple hours sanding and finishing per batch.
