John—I don’t think a retail business can survive without a website.

There was a time when retailers couldn’t survive without a Yellow Pages ad, and display ads in the local phone book and newspapers. The web has replaced both.

I have a friend who is a superb craftsman … his work is all done on a custom basis (by hand), and he commands very respectable fees. Does he have a website? You bet! ( http://www.heramcustomwoodworking.com/ )

You can make your own website … if you have a knack for doing that kind of work and have the time, go for it.

But remember, the people you want to sell to could probably make something that would serve the same purpose as the product you are selling … that doesn’t mean it would be as finely crafted or as durable or as much of a pleasure to own as the products you create.
