I'm considering starting a business selling crocheted stuff. However, I know I'd likely focus on selling clothes for barbie dolls. Has anyone had any success in selling this?

I've seen folks on Artfire selling them (and, yes, they sell). You have to market your butt off to sell stuff, regardless. If you want to sell something, oh, once in a while just for fun and to make money to buy more yarn, you probably won't sell that much.

Thanks. I never heard of Artfire before but I like how it seems. A cheaper alternative to Etsy.

I dont know very much about the doll world, but I do know that ball-jointed dolls (BJDs) have a pretty large following on etsy, so if the clothes fit them as well as the barbie dolls it would be a good way to expand your demographic without changing the product.

Well I've never really owned a ball-jointed doll so I'm not sure how well the clothes would fit them. Any ideas where I can get one for cheap?
