Post post, and hope the cash trickles in...

January 17th, 2008 at 07:40 pm

Today was productive. I just set up an eBay auction for some very nice perfume I won at a holiday raffle. I also put 4 like-new books up for sale on the Amazon marketplace and posted two listings on Etsy.com, the craft Web site, for some tote bags that I made out of vintage Transformers and Batman fabrics. Hopefully some of these will sell in the next few weeks so I can pad the tiki bar fund! (although, not as much as I like because auction fees really add up. What a racket!)

It's time to also think about expanding my craft repertoire to boost sales so I can get closer to my goals. I'm thinking of designing/ selling a simple and inexpensive sewing pattern for reusable grocery bags. And maybe branching out into sterling silver jewelry. That will take a whole new skill set, but would be very exciting to learn.

    Why not just make and sell the acutal grocery bag?

    I do make them, but there are a lot of crafty people out there who really like to make and design their own. Designing a pattern would be great for those folks, and the extra benefit would be that I only have to make the pattern once but can sell it many times, whereas I have to spend time making each bag.
