Thinking of starting a small business from home selling pretty handmade accessories

Hi Penelope. Handmade scarves sounds interesting. I think makeup bags, ipod/pad cases, hairclips, change/evening purses would be good.
There are a few people out there selling on ebay and their own websites so maybe have a look around and see what sells.
Good Luck!

Oh! Proper little girls headbands, and hair clips, nothing shiny pink or plasticky! It's so rare finding nice girls hair accessory that doesn't cost a fortune,
nice gym
bags or fabric shopping totes,

Or those garment bags you use for traveling or storing underwear, socks..etc

Whatever you decide to do, make sure it is different. Don't be afraid to charge decent prices either. Too many people try to undercut each other, its the quickest way to go out of business.

How about traditional, good quality children's accessories with a retro design? Think children's clothing from the 70's and 80's....tagged with a union jack, 'made in Britain' label.
