Living indoors led many people to experiment with tactile hobbies like bread-making and quilting. What started out as a pastime could, with a little know-how, become a side business. Online platforms like Facebook Marketplace, Etsy and Instagram, as well as the revival of flea markets – often with a trendy indie touch – offer new ways to make money from these age-old crafts and activities.

Here’s a look at three trending hobbies you can make serious money off of. These are not your grandma’s side appearances.

Another proof: a plant aesthetic has developed on social media, especially on Instagram. The hashtags #Plants and #PlantsofInstagram have tens of millions of posts. Outside of the local market scene, many small businesses use Instagram to sell their plants. Selling succulents probably won’t allow you to quit your day job, but it can replenish your savings or help you pay off debts.
