I decorate wine bottles, but not your run of the mill lighted wine bottles or painted wine bottles. I'll post some links to pictures.Here are my questions- 1. Do you think these will sell in general? 2. What about a craft show? 3. Any feedback/ constructive critism ? Here is some of my work:

Interesting ... never saw bottles decorated like that.  Will they sell?  I think given the right market anything will sell.  Have you tried craft shows with success?  There are shows around here in Louisiana where more traditional arts/crafts sell well.  However there are some venues where something not so traditional (like your products) might do well.  But then, you never know ... yours might do well in a more tradtional show.  Having never seen something like that it's hard to tell.

God Bless,

Thanks for the reply Smiley. I've never particpated in a craftshow but it is a goal of mine. I'm just a little nervous to spend $100 for a spot. I have gotten mostly positive feedback from people (most of which are friends and family though).  I live in Florida so I'll have to do some research about where non-traditional crafts tend to thrive.

Sure, they'll sell to the steampunk/urban and Potter crowd. It's just a matter of finding the buyers. If you join etsy you can join a Florida etsy group and they can feed you craft show opps where such folks show up.

I think your bottles are freakin' sweeeet, and I think that they would sell skull in the right setting. Think ren faires or alternative craft fairs. If you have a good online presence, I think they would also sell well online.

I love these, they are very unique. I wonder if you have thought of opening an Etsy store? It is free and only for handmade items. They are all about unique, handmade items and yours certainly qualify. Yes, I think these would sell. Go for it!

I agree with everyone else, that you just have to find the right buyers. Craft sales/community fairs and the like would be a good idea.
