The Handmade Marketplace: How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally, and On-Line by Kari Chapin

Its an exciting new world for crafters. Handmade is hip, creativity is what the market wants, and there are many profitable sales opportunities that didnt exist a few short years ago. For crafters who have more confidence running a sewing machine than setting up a website, The Handmade Marketplace breaks down and makes sense of the global possibilities for marketing and selling crafts. First, determine the right price for every item -- not too expensive and definitely not too cheap. Whether the product is beaded jewelry or felted slippers, illustrations or tote bags, author Kari Chapin helps crafters determine cost of goods, market competition, and the pros and cons of wholesale and retail sales. If the price is right, customers will buy. Then its on to selling. The boom in indie craft fairs and sites such as Etsy (Your place to buy & sell all things handmade) is providing artisans with an ever-expanding marketplace for handcrafted items. Chapin demystifies every venue. She explains the guidelines that craft fairs impose on exhibitors, the typical yearly calendar of shows, and how to start a new craft
