So some of you may have heard of survival straps. They are made from paracord that can be used to pitch a tent, start a fire, rappel etc in an emergency situation. The name brand survival straps are $30+. I was thinking of selling these anywhere between 5 and 7 dollars a piece. Any color, any size, awareness ribbons can be added, two color or one color, anything you can think of.



Just to test the waters, would anyone be interested in these? Or is there a different price I should charge? Thanks in advance, ladies.

I voted no, but don't let that deter you. I just don't like the bracelets in general so I wouldn't buy one:

They are definitely an acquired taste I think. Thanks for the honesty!

My daughter has a hot pink and black one :) Her uncle made it for her. It's not something I would buy because he could make them for me and they're not really my style but i'm sure there's others who would.

They are really easy to make. They are fairly cheap to make, at least in my town. You have to get the singing perfect. Kids here make and sell them in school. My brother has even made belts and dog collars.

So there was a group of kids selling these at a bazaar. They sold a TON, enough to buy a lot of stuff from me!



They're not my cup of tea, but there could be a market for them.

Yeah they are easy and cheap to make. And with so many purposes I think they're really neat. You could really make anything out of it too. It's cool
