I am semi-retired and am trying to turn my hobby into a part time/full time business. So far I have only sold at yard sales and 2 trips to the local swap meets. The skull chairs, for example, I thought would sell good. So far, 1 at a yard sales for $80 and my wife sold 2 for $100 at the swap meet. Materials cost about $40 to build one.
Dragon light boxes ended up going for almost half of what I expected.
I realize the economy in California is awful and especially in the Antelope Valley where I live.
On the positive side, I did get many people asking for a business card and requesting different things from key holders with a business logo on it to remodel of a 1960’s motorhome.
It would be difficult at least if not impossible to cover everything.
I tried to explain to one guy the time it takes to design his request, make templates and then make the final product. It would come to more then he wants to pay.
I had a lot of inquires about the chairs but with football helmet/logos too. Are any of you LJ’s doing those?
Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
