Selling Your Crafts

Most of us have thought of doing this at some point, or maybe you've already done it once or twice. The idea itself sounds wonderful - do what you love and get paid for it. Sounds like a dream job, doesn't it?

The truth is, when it comes to selling crafts, few dedicated individuals can make it their full time career - and generate a full time income. However, it can bring you in a nice little second income, even if you only generate enough profit to keep you in craft supplies for your own personal use.

There are a few things you must take into consideration before proceeding. We'll be addressing some of these issues over the next few weeks:

What to Sell
Choose a craft, any craft.
Where to Sell - Updated!
From your home, online, craft fairs.
How to Advertise
Word of mouth, etc.
Keeping Records
You need to know if you're making a profit.
Pricing
It can be the toughest decision of all.
Planning Your Display
Use your imagination.
The Competition
Keeping a step ahead of those crafty crafters.
Craftspeople as Customers
So, how did you make this exactly...?
