11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Inspiration and selling your crafts... ranting on: July 31, 2007 02:27:00 AM
Today i was speaking to a friend about what I would love to do one day, create my own little empire/business.

I showed her my cube which i made on the weekend (you can have a look on my blog) and she said 'you should start your own little business.

I started off selling jewellery as it was cheap to post and it really took off but then the market became saturated and i got a little disheartened. I have since then started sewing so have been making little pouches and recently just got in to making plushies/monsters and just toys but i don't know where to start with getting my name out there. I have come up with a name 'odds n blobs'.

I want to sell on Etsy but I just don't know if making plushies is going to work as they can be bulky and being in AUSTRALIA, crafts just are not very big so I would be sending things over seas. I am trying to figure out what I want to focus on and what is going to work....

I would love to hear people's experience with starting their own craft business and how they got there....

I hope one day to have it take off but just need that bit of hope and direction I guess!  Undecided
