I wanted to share about an Author who writes a series of books that benefit anyone selling crafts. I think I own almost every book she has written, but am otherwise unaffiliated.

Look for books at your library, amazon.com or bookstore by books from Barbara Brabec. She writes books titled "Make it Profitable" I believe one is "Craft for Cash" (or something similiar)

She writes about selling crafts and nothing else. She discusses prices, wholesale, consignment, fairs/markets, and lots more. She also features stories of real businesses and things they did to build or break their business. One story I love is a lady who repaired antique dolls and bears, her price was so low that no one trusted her with their antiques. She gave her prices a HUGE rate hike and then her business went crazy after her next craft fair!

But I think anyone on this board would benefit from reading her books.

I want to fill my home and life with handcrafts! PM me if you want to do a personal swap!

I have brand new inkpads and stamps I need to get rid of. Good brands too. I want to swap for other supplies! PM me if you're interested!
