For a few years, Ronell has been telling me I should sell my quilts and other random stuff I've dabbled in (burp clothes, binky clips, nursing cover, car seat canopies, etc.). I'm a little overwhelmed with the Etsy shop idea (I think I'd get lost in the oodles of talented people). Now that I live in Arkansas, there's a bigger market for people willing to pay for this stuff (they're not the super saver crafty Utah folk), but I don't know how to market. I've got information for wholesale stuff. But I'm a bit of a wuss who fears total rejection (and losing $$$$$ in overhead for supplies). So here's where you come in. Any ideas on how to get started in marketing my stuff? Should I stick with quilts? I've had random strangers ask me where I got my nursing cover, binky clips, canopy, etc. Should I start small and do matching burp cloth sets? Any advice on localized marketing? Feel free to just email me.
P.S. I am aware that some of you already make and sell these great things. No hard feelings if you don't want to share trade secrets. :-)
