  • What is the best way to sell crafts?

    I have been getting people asking me if i sell patterns or plans for my extreme birdhouses .
    Then my son came to me last week and said he could design patterns .
    He just finished a pattern and he wants to sell them on EBay.
    My question is WHAT other ways can i go about this?

    Hi John,
    There was a thread about this somewhere on this forum - I'll try and dig it out later for you. Considering the nature of your craft, have you tried local garden centres? Or hardware shops? Ebay is worth a shot but also have a look at Etsy too - they are more focused on clothes/bags/small handicrafts but it might be worth a look.
    I'll have a look for that link for you

      Ok - I found it but it's not as useful as I thought it was! There is another one somewhere - I'll keep looking.

      Well I found the other links but they are focused on card makers/small gift makers so nothing that would be useful there - sorry. You will have to let us know how it goes!

            Thank you everyone
            I am doing an article for Canadian woodworking magizine by the spring and i was thinking i should have a few different patterns ready by then.

            They will put my web site on there too soon as i can get one.

            Thanks again
            I will check them links out.
