Do you find that lately it seems to be becoming a duopoly in the handcrafts online marketplace, with Etsy as the main venue but ArtFire emerging as the primary alternative?

So over the past couple of years, I've gathered a lot of extra supplies I'll never use/need. Things like pipe cleaners, fabric headers, big fabric swatches, ribbon etc.

I want to get them out of my house, so I was thinking I could put them in flat rate shipping boxes and sell them. I don't want to start a business or anything big. I think I have enough to fill a couple boxes.

So was there anywhere I could sell these? I don't want to make an etsy because you have to pay. Is there like an arts/ crafts board like this I cold post on? Or any where on this board? Preferably somewhere free. Or a site?

I think your best bet would be to list them on craigslist.

If you're creating nichy items then one great strategy is to look for non-competing joint ventures. Get together with a few friends and brainstorm out as many different types of business and professionals that your items align with.

Then call in and see them, and ask if they'd like to try a few items on sale or return. Offer the first few a VERY HEALTHY commision - say 70% of your profit. Then once you've got them in their outlets, you can use them as testimonials for future partners and lower your commision rates to new partners

Hope this helps,

Babs.

Personally, I'd start with a small market stall, even just a car boot sale so you can see, hear and feel the reactions of people to your work.

Real world customer feedback is so much more important than the views of friends and family
