There have been some great discussions on here lately on the issue of pricing and selling your work. It’s made for some great “in the back of my mind” thinking, and has moved me to the place that I’ve decided to start selling some of my woodworking on Etsy.

I’m having a lot of fun making pens, and decided that—while the pens are the same types of pens that others sell—this wood that I’ve found is absolutely amazing! So we’re going to give this a shot and see how it goes.

If you’re interested in looking, here’s the link:

Have a great day!

This is a knowledgeable post. For some time now, I’ve known about, a website devoted to selling the creations of crafters and artists from all over the world.

My son went to school for graphic design. He’s not much into woodworking but works for Jac Zagoory Designs. They design and sell Pens. Its hard to believe for me but then there is a different world out there my salary does not allow me to be privy to. Some of the prices rivals what I think a truck should cost.

Good luck and I hope it works as well for you as it does for Jac Zagoory Designs.

I will be really interested in how this turns out. I am currently looking for a different way to sell my scrollsaw work. Keep us posted.

Best of luck! Etsy can be great, it can be a pain. The nice thing with it is you can tend to it as you have the time and desire.

Nice pens, I have also considered ETSY. I just have not made the commitment
