If you are making crafts now, think about kicking your hobby into a higher gear and turn it into a profit-generating endeavor. With the craft craze nowadays, experts in the handcraft field estimate that the crafts industry generates almost $10 billion in annual sales. Depending on your craft, you can sell your crafts retail, wholesale, or one-of-a-kind in fairs, bazaars, boutiques as well as mail-order catalogs, gift shops and department stores.
The challenge for many craft enthusiasts is turning their hobbies into full-blown businesses, and developing a more professional attitude toward their home business. Finding the right price for their products has always been a difficult task, but the cardinal rule is to always make at least twice as much as you have paid for your supplies.
Keep up-to-date with the latest trends by reading crafting magazines and try to find your own "niche" market for your crafts.
