Selling Handmade Crochet Items


I would like to start selling my handmade crochet items, but I don't know what would sell and what won't sell. I also need to know what to price the items. Thank you bunches!

Selling Handmade Crochet Items

I am crocheting some items to sell in a local craft show. I haven't had any advice about pricing, either, but I'm going to price them at what I would be willing to pay for them if I were the buyer. Of course, I have to make a profit over and above the supplies, and my time, but I think I'll have that figured in okay - sure hope so! Ha! Good luck, and God bless you. (09/04/2007)

You can sell them on eBay. After you set up an account, you will need to look for the same thing you are selling and research what they are selling for. Take really good pictures of what you have to sell, and give a good description; and how much you want the bidding to start for the product. If you are a little scared of the process, you can put up one to sell and see how it goes. I have sold and bought on eBay and have had good success. Have a good time with it, it is exciting to see your things bid up and up. Good luck. (09/04/2007)

My friend and I set up at craft shows and sell crocheted items. We price them for the area. Some areas you can charge more, but in little towns like we set up at we figure our price by price of materials and then double or triple it. I make slippers and sell them for $2.50 because I can make 2 pair out of a skein of yarn. They sell really fast. It is kind of a try and see thing. Good luck. I sell in Michigan.

I suggest just looking at what sells well on eBay to get a good idea of the market first. (09/05/2007)

Make sure you make usable products, not just decorative pieces. Slippers, pot holders, place mats, hats and scarves, and baby afghans would sell well. My grandmother had a home business making afghans, that spread just by word-of-mouth. People would pick out a pattern they liked from her small samples and tell her how big they wanted it to be. She'd tell them how much yarn to buy, they'd go to the store and buy the colors they wanted to match their homes. Then she'd make it for them and call them when it was ready. She was able to do this in her spare time while she watched TV in the evening. The business wasn't huge, but steady, and gave her spending money. (09/09/2007)

susanmajp: Do you know how much she sold them for? I have never made an afghan, but I believe I would enjoy it. But if you don't want me to use her idea that's okay by me! Thanks, Mackenzie (09/11/2007)
