I'm curious. How many people here sell their crafts?

I used to sell my crafts, & now as a SAHM I have a bit more free time on my hands so I've been considering it for awhile. Any thoughts?

I do. I have a partner and we do the stuff together. She takes care of all the computer and selling stuff because I have no idea what I am doing.

We both sew our own stuff and pretty much set our own prices. For example I made a butterfly rag quilt and it was 27x27. It is like newborn size. I thought that she was crazy for saying that I should sell it for $49.00. So I told her ok thinking that in a few weeks I would have to drop the price..NOPE it sold in less than 24 hours. That is where we help eachother.

We sell on our own website, a little on etsy, a little on ebay and if we really need things gone we sell them cheaper and post on craigslist.
We also do craft shows every now and then.

Did any of this help you? I tend to ramble sometimes.....

As of now I don't, but as I get into more types of projects and such I think I'd like to at some point.
