craft websites

Postby grannygreenwitch » Tue May 15, 2012 11:56 pm

Hi fellow crafters. Do any of you know of websites to sell your ware? I know of Etsy & of course ebay,but I'm sure there must be more.
I can't manage too many sales anymore, so want to find an easier outlet for my home made gem essences/ bath oils/room sprays etc.
Any hints?
:-)

Here people sell crafts at their local village market, or WI sale. Many people rent a village or church hall and sell, it's not expensive. Or you could ask to have a table at a school fete.

.... or get together with someone already selling at those places and share the table/space ...
you wouldn't have to be there when your body likes to stay in bed/indoors etc
just a thought
this and something similar I can see on the horizon coming for me, hopefully

From my years of experience doing craft fairs, you should always sell where's there's children along with their parents. The little brats just won't go home unless their parents buy something, so I always had plenty of small stuff for them. Aim for 5-9 yr olds, who are strong enough to stand their ground or handcuff themselves to a radiator unless they've got a preset to take home for grandma.
