I've always had a dream to have a little P/T dollhouse miniatures business, but I have no idea how to begin. I'd sure appreciate some tips and advice. Thanks!

You could try sites that promote handmade items like etsy.com, artfire.com, or lov.li

I sell mine on etsy... for the ease and low low prices, and the worldwide exposure :)

I registered my domain at godaddy, and have it forwarded to my etsy site.

etsy charges .20 cents per listing, and that listing stays up for 4 months. There's a percentage of your sales fee... 3.5%... Very very reasonable.

So, I blog and put ads on kijiji, as well as having my business cards. Although many of my sales are other etsians browsing! Etsy already has a huge following of like minded creative people that appreciate the time and effort that art takes. It was so easy to set up, that it made far more sense to use it as my main website than to struggle through creating my own store.

lately, I'm paying maybe $3 to $5 a month to use it. That's far better than paying $15 or more for a webstore that might get no traffic!
