In a similar boat – but I am somewhat gainfully employed and have had fair success in selling my wares through Custom Made website ( – only issue there is that there is usually shipping involved (major PIA) and you have to make a lot of one-off things, which is fun, but time consuming, so it is hard to price things well because of the time involved. But this year (since Feb.) AI have made 15 jobs with an average price of over $900 – not too bad…started with small things and graduated to larger items.

I tried the craft fair thing in 2012 and spent a lot of money and time for nothing

If you want to look at my portfolio to get an idea –

Hope this helps
