Every now and then, it's good to take a break from big corporations and name-brand products. Too often, many of us get sucked into the wormhole that is Amazon Prime or we get excited when we see that fancy new piece of furniture available at Fred Meyer.

But, when was the last time you bought something in the Treasure Valley that was homemade?

Look no further than Boise's Facebook Marketplace

Let's be honest with ourselves - when was the last time we actually searched for something that was "homemade"? Unless you're into that specifically, chances are it's something you look past when setting your search criteria.

Today, we're looking at some of the items you didn't know you needed on Facebook Marketplace and it's all because we looked through items that were "homemade."

While one collection of items is absolutely terrifying, there are other homemade items that are downright impressive for how they were constructed. While we did search Boise, the radius of the search afforded us more items that we had to include.

Let's take a look at the top eight items on Boise's Facebook Marketplace that you didn't know you needed.

So, those homemade items (minus the scary monkey babies) are absolutely terrific in my opinion. But, what about fashion?

There's an old saying that "one person's trash, is another person's treasure" but is that the same with fashion? If someone gets rid of what they think was a "hot fashion trend", would you take a chance and buy it?

Someone did just that with the hot trend that was known as the "Astro Boy Boots"... and they got ROASTED.
