I make dream catchers in all sizes. The 12 inch ones I would sell them for $15.00, the 8 inch for $10.00 and the 3 inches for $6.00. I do extrememly detailed webs and incorporate crystals and beads with them.

I do painted wood pieces from a 7" Angel that says "Angels are sometimes disguised as ......Mothers or Grandmothers or Teachers or Nurses, etc. Real Cute, to Larger Santa that says "Just Say Ho". Lots of different wood pieces My retail prices on these run from $5 to $20.
A tall "Powder Room" Doll done with different colors curly hair and towels. She is about 20'" tall. Retails $20.
Some quilted table runners, pillows, etc. all different retails. My prices aren't much more than $20 on any of my crafts.
My large stuffed "time out" doll is great. My best-seller. Do tons of special orders on them. Would do special order for boy, girl, color of hair, etc. if someone wants to trade that. She retails for $40.
I don't think retail values of crafts will be that much of an issue as long as they are in this range, do you? It's gonna be great fun, no matter. Looking forward to it. Won't you let us know what kind of crafts the rest of you have?
The only crochet I do is a double or single crochet stitch, and I'm limited in that. Wouldn't mind getting something in that line, for example.

Let's see ...
I knit. I can do facecloths, mittens, fingerless gloves (with or without mitten caps), mini-mittens, Yule stockings, baby sweaters, and caps for anyone from a preemie to an adult. I can also probably do small bags that would be suitable for Tarot/rune storage, etc. I do not do intricate colorwork, such as fairisle, but I can do simple multicolor designs such as entrelac (looks like basketwoven diamonds), stripes, colorblocks, etc. I can also do reasonably intricate stitch design, such as ribbing, lace, cables, etc. I'm not extremely fast, but if I commit to make something I can probably have it delivered within a month. (You'll notice I'm not offering to make anything large, like an adult sweater!)
What I want: I would love to have a new dreamcatcher, especially if I could choose colors, stones, etc. I also love nice-smelling candles and soaps, and stained-glass pentagrams (though I don't know if anyone on this list makes those!) Oh, and I like jewelry too! Just about the only thing I wouldn't be interested in would be tole painting -- it reminds me of my mom (long story).
