  •  Do you have an Etsy store? (1+ / 0-)

    It does require marketing, but some have done well with those.

    I also know someone who did a "Holiday crafts fair" at her own house (she did sewing) -- open invitation to visit on a specific day, cookies and goodies were available (free) and she had a wide selection of handmade items at a wide range of prices.  

    She started with people at work (inviting them by if they needed to shop for personalized gifts) and built it into quite a sales fare (she took in over $3k one weekend.) It took several years to build this up.

    Perhaps you could coordinate with other locals to do something like this (by invitation, and tuned to holiday seasons)

      it's where I started. Then I moved all my handicrafts over to Zibbet and kept the Etsy store for my readings & metaphysical stuff, plus a few collectibles.

      Like I said, the online stuff is working well. In fact I just today sold one of those crocheted scarves to a fellow Kossack! :)
