“I was one of those who used to make crafts merely for leisure but once I’d made plenty of them, my friends urged me to think about selling them online. I’d never taken it seriously until recently when I noticed a lot of crafts out there for sale and I said “why not?” However, I still had no idea how to price them. Some people suggested that I simply multiply the costs by four. I didn’t completely agree with this idea but I had no better one so I just followed it.

“Once I found this book I said “this is exactly what I need!” It covers everything I wish I have known about how to price crafts. It also includes the topic of one-of-a-kind crafts, which is what I’m specifically looking for. Now I’m making more profit from my crafts and planning to expand my product line. And the last chapter about tax advantages nailed it. If you are selling crafts and want to make a living out of them, this book is a must.”

“I have been knitting for about three years now, just as a hobby. My grandmother actually got me into it, and I admit at first I thought it was ‘old lady stuff’. I was wrong. It is a lot of fun and you can make tons of cool stuff. My favorite is making hats. I made a rainbow beret for one of my girlfriends recently and she told me I should be selling these things. I had never even thought about the possibility of making some cash on the side for just doing a hobby I love. But hey, why not.

“This guide was exactly what I needed to figure out how to make the most from my hobby. I had never even thought about shopping online and specific stores for the cheapest yarn possible. I had just always bought whatever the local Target has. That tip alone saved me money. It also helped me determine where I should sale my knitted goods to make the most money.

“I am still not trying to do this as a profession, but the extra money coming in from doing something I love is just incredible.”

“My daughter is the crafty one in the family, selling things in her Etsy shop as well as local craft shows. She does well at it, but I’ve always thought she prices her items too cheap- I tried explaining the concept of perceived value to her, where if it’s priced cheap people will associate that with being cheaply made, and therefore an inferior product. This book helped drive home the point I was trying to make- the author explains crafting as a true business better than I ever could. The book even includes tips on how to manage the profits you do see, and how to take advantage of breaks for home-based businesses during income tax time. Well put together and very informative, every crafter can benefit from this information.”
