Just an idea to make a little Christmas money (or even a wonderful Christmas present) – I recently read an interesting article about a lady who spent the summer at auctions and boot sales buying up damaged, old and scruffy dolls houses and refurbishing them and filling them with furniture, then either selling them or giving them as gifts. These “toys” are highly sought after and not just by children.

Of course, you need to have the skills to do something as specialised as this, but still, we all have something we can do, whether it’s knitting a pretty scarf in eyelash yarn (pattern to follow), making mini Christmas cakes (recipe to follow) as gifts or to sell at markets and boot sales or cooking up jars of Christmas Chutney (recipe to follow). Get making!
