CROCHET ENTREPRENEUR

What do you think about selling on Pinterest? Does it looks easy to you?

This is Maggie’s Crochet buying pins, I wonder if she is selling? I’m just curious …  

Want to sell on WordPress or on Facebook ? They have you covered. I have noticed that it is getting easier to sell handmade and people are actually buying REAL handmade, so Yes! we are Artisans for real and the wave is getting bigger by the minute.


So I’m looking into ways to fund my addiction and hobby (please don’t judge me πŸ™‚ ) but I’m not as brave as you might think πŸ™‚ so if let’s say I start selling something on Pinterest and it’s thriving   , will you sell some of your creations too? It could be fun and rewarding like a big Flea Market!

 

I’m seeing so many sites where you can sell your “Handmade with Love” item that it’s tempting the entrepreneur inside of me πŸ™‚

What do you think? Should I or Shouldn’t I????

Changing subjects: I love these potholders a lot, they don’t look too complicated and they look like a fast project, which is excellent πŸ™‚   

  So are you going to hop on the bandwagon with me?

P. S: I have been a little busy lately  but I’m still working on the Overlay tutorial, and the Monday morning updates, don’t laugh..

  1. I get people asking me to sell all the time. My problem is that I have no idea what to charge. I don’t want to ask too much, because they won’t want to buy. If I ask too little I’m not making any money and might as well give them away.

  2. Go for it! I started selling some Easter candles here in Greece and have posted through facebook. For a start I did pretty well and am confident if I keep up the hard work people will see more things on my page and will get to know me better. From various reads and conversations I had, plus from the slight experience of selling those candles, customers see your style of work and if they like it then they might order something specific (custom-made). It even happens in live stores here in Greece. At some point I’m hoping to take the next step and opening an online shop. Thinking positive is always the way forward, so I say “Think positive, go for it and good luck!”

  3. I didn’t even know you could sell on Pinterest. I’m completely on the bandwagon. All I knew about online was Etsy and maybe eBay or amazon. I am busy making things already though for my first craft show in November.

  4. Go for it! I’ve often thought about it myself but I don’t think anything I make is quite up to standard. You must have plenty of ‘stock’ lying about so my advice is … Feel the fear and do it anyway!

    Go for it! But keep it as a hobby thing, still. It’s true that people buy handmade, but not enough people. I would do it if I didn’t already work full time (and love my job) but it could be fun. I have a friend who sells her crocheted items and it’s very satisfying to her to see happy customers who love her work.

  6. I think you can feel less guilty about buying craft supplies if you are earning the money to buy them!! there certainly seems to be an interest in the handmade atm.

  12. I have been selling my work for years. But only recently opened a facebook shop. I also sell some on ebay. I am considering doing it the pinterest way but am finding that after a awhile I simply don’t have enough time.Most of my customers come from my facebook posts and me letting people know I do custom crochet work.
