11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: how to get started in selling things? on: May 06, 2013 05:47:08 AM
I'm looking to do a craft show  but haven't found any in my area as of yet , but I live in a big city so I'm sure I'll see one just need to get a big inventory to sell and business cards
I am doing things that don't take long because I'm not very fast knitter yet, I am fairly new only been at this about 3 years, most people I know have been at this for 10 years or more. And everyone I know only does this as fun so that doesn't help me much.
A blanket for a twin bed took me 6 months.
I do know my brother in law offered to help me by selling hats at a grocery store he says my hats are so cool I do iron patches sport decals on them.
So I might take that outlet but I'm unsure how that would sell in summer.
Also any advice on what sells in summer?
Here is a example of the sports hats I have done other concern is copy write if the sports logos are copy witted and if I need to worry about that

 well I should have said I put 20 things up and have posted on craigslist and ebay as well , but most of my items are custom so people can pick and chose the color they want . Maybe that is where im going wrong

What is a good beginners crochet project/ pattren?
 I only know chain,crochet one and double crochet I tried and failed miserably to do a granny square so I may need something more simple then that.

oh and i have heard from several people never sell crafts on ebay since it doesnt sell there , also its a competition thing when you can go to walmart (which seems to out source everyone )and get the same thing for way cheaper you will do that so it takes a gob of research so I have heard.
Mine would be selling of knitting items that walmart / other places like that doesnt sell

etsy hasnt worked for me been on there 3 months and cant sell anything unsure what im doing wrong and your own website seems like a waste of time it requires word of mouth and thats where im stuck is not knowing how to get the word out also not knowing how much and what to sell.

id like to start a small shop here with some knitted work
First question is this really work? is there people who buy this I have tried to post on ebay/ etsy with no luck so second question is where do you start and lastly how much inventory do you need? I would be interested in selling things i can make quickly such as hats, scarfs, washcloths, bookmakers , animal hammocks and toys , but im not sure what actual sells since so far I have only ever made things for family

looks fine but make sure your stitches arent to tight when casting on you can cast on to bigger needles if you feel your stitches are tight , another trick i do for lose stitches is to not tighten it on the needle the hole way hope that makes since. What Also i would do is when you have cast on all your stitches be sure to trim your tail down so you dont confuse it with the work I make mine about 3 inches or less you wont need a long tail.
