I agree soap is a good barter item, even if it is not homemade - any kind.
Hygiene kits would be good.
I think a really handy item which would be worth something in barter would be a campground - style
cleanup kit.

Campground plastic basin for face and hand washing. Put these items in it:
•   plastic cup with toothbrush and toothpaste.
•   a couple of facecloths
•   campground mirror and a string on it and a nail attached for hanging up.
•   Small towel
•   Small packet detergent
•   short line with clothespins
•   Foldable pallet to stand on when cleaning up...
•   Baby unscented wipes
•   Pack it all up in a transparent plastic bag

I think bolts of fabric would be a good item too.  People are going to have to have clothes!  I've even thought of using sheets and blankets to make clothes if there are no bolts of fabric anymore.

I did a lot of sewing with 3 girls and I have often thought about how important sewing will be afterwards.  Treadle sewing machines will be worth a lot, and it is really a shame how few women know how to sew anymore, or crochet or knit.  These are lost skills along with canning and growing herbs and other stuff.

The Foxfire series would be a great addition to a library for reference aftertimes.  Also Carla Emory's books.

Great ideas, especially the treadle sewing machine...
We all need to at least have an instruction manual on how to learn these skills.
Did you learn a lot from your Mother?

Prepping to barter when SHTF: What skills to learn and items to stockpile

http://bugout.news/2018-07-05-prepping-to-barter-when-shtf-what-skills-to-learn-and-items-to-stockpile.html

After the world has gone sour, do you think banks and financial institutions would still function and keep printing money? Do you think we would still be able to walk up to a store and trade a piece of paper for an item that we need or want? A devastating act of terrorism such as a bioweapon that could render all of us fearing for our lives and would make the very concept of money meaningless.

Knowledge and supplies that can last for a long period of time such as axes, hammers, saw blades, spoke shaves, among others, are going to be prized commodities. He who sits on a pile of toilet paper will be treated with reverence. (In any case, one should learn how to make do without tissues – how do you think ancient caveman lived before their invention?)

A necessity for every homestead is someone with the knowledge of how to butcher an animal and preserve them for future use by salt curing, dehydrating, or smoking. Another important skill to learn when it comes to food processing is how to brew beer, mead, vinegar, or other alcoholic beverages from simple materials.

The basics of animal husbandry are also important to a homestead. Farm animals are precious, for they can reproduce and provide meat. Not only that, they can also be a source of other food products such as milk, dairy, or eggs. Knowing which animals to breed and how to properly breed them is a must.

Water is life. During your post-apocalyptic stint, it is advisable that you secure yourself a constant supply of potable water for your survival and the survival of your family. (Related: Master these 7 basic skills…or you’ll wind up begging the government for basic supplies.)

In a post-apocalyptic scenario, anything can happen. People might get lost, injured. People might even die. To keep abreast of your family, friends, and loved ones, it is necessary that you know how to use a ham radio. Knowing how to make and set up an antenna to improve your radio signal and mastering the Morse code are also wonderful skills to have in your arsenal.

Max.

Yes, a long list compiled by lots of people over the years...
Most people would not have all those items, but the list gives a person something to think about, the value of things they may already have an an abundance of.
Or things they could easily get.
