Hello to all Arts and Crafts woodworkers. but aren’t we all. I wish to pose a question that has no real answer. I currently sell arts and crafts type woodworking via word-of-mouth, friend to friend, advertising by posting pictures on Lumberjocks and Facebook (many friends know about these sites), and in a consignment store (this being just a week old). Now I must clarify that the scrollsaw is my primary tool of use in this operation.
My question is what sells well for you, Of course this time of year it is holiday and Christmas items. Now looking forward to January what items do I put into the mix? Perhaps doll furniture, or candle trays, or boxes of some type.
First I know that a mix of these would be best. Something for everyone. We all know if we hit the next wave then we can’t make enough items. I have been in retail and marketing for many years and understand the basics. However selling like this is somewhat new to me. I know that advertising is the key however expense is the issue.
Any and all input is welcomed and valued. Thanks for your time to review this information.
