If you mean completed items, I have about 30 completed mirrors upstairs, ready to wing their way to a new home!!! I try and make 2 of each colour if I can, so I am ready if someone places an order. And as it happens someone did today - hoorah!!! Must be because it's my birthday :)

I probably have roughly 100 candles in stock to take to fairs. Orders from the web get made up when they are ordered so they are nice and fresh.

Cheers.

I have loads of craft supplies all in plastic boxes dotted around the house in various cupboards.

As for handmade cards, i have roughly 50 in my box in work. No matter how hard i try (and due to limited time) i can never increase my stock. I took 5 new ones in this morning and 4 had gone before dinner.

I too have hundreds of fired bisque items around the house and dozens upon dozens more in my workshop waiting to be sanded and fired. Most of them are only 3" tall though and people tend to buy a few at a time to give to their kids to paint. I make them into packs too which is what I sell most of at fairs.

As for finishedware, I have about a dozen vases in different colours and candle holders but I do offer customers a bespoke service on those to match their decor as best I can.

Firstly - apologies for editing your post BBD - I meant to quote instead but clicked the wrong button!
Blimey!! I have about 100 items that are finished and for sale and about 20 items half finished and stuff for making about another 200 things!

Off top of my head, I think I have
150 cards ready to go (various shapes occassions etc)
and probably hundreds of toppers or bags of embellishments already made - I tend to make between 5 and 10 of the same thing if I've got all the dies as I sell on ebay (sparodically) and have the little website and keep having too many ideas for stuff to make.

It fills a kitchen cupboard, 4 tidy boxes, 1 largeish cardboard box and a storage box and the 6foot dining table top (stuff in 'progress')

How much craft stuff we have is not the problem.
The problem is, it will never be enough.
We will still be sucked in to buying that lovely bunch of sparkly beads or that nice colour paper, even though we know darn well we have enough stuff sitting in our little craft boxes to make a shed load of items.
I have made a pledge to use up all my little 'bits & pieces' before i buy any other materials...
Anyone with me?????

Tell me your pledge!
I keep looking at all my stuff (I put them in icecream tubs, curry takeaway tubs, washing powder tubs to make them look 'less') and thinking I must stop buying sparkly stuff that I think I'll use or saving the fab paper from a bunch of flowers......
I think help is now needed! :mf:

I have about 15 cards ready made for when I need to use them. As I'm not a seller of craft items I only have in what I need.
