Just putting it out there...
I am working on having a little inventory but my wife expects me to have a plan to get rid of some!
SO, I know of a flea market that gets very busy and I even have a volunteer to sit there at times when I can't or don't want to. A spot is only $10 a day! I almost can't lose...unless I sell NOTHING.
Just wanted to see what others may be doing. Not sure I want to go online just yet like ebay, etsy, etc... Maybe Craigslist for local stuff.
Not looking to make a ton of money but I can only play with so many at a time and they are fun to make! Any info for me??
Know of another place, $58/month for a 6x6 spot, you don't need to be there. Still getting more details, but not being there is almost priceless!
im doing the same on the 28th . im hitting the flea market . after that im not sure yet . ...just dont tell the wife lol .
I show off a few builds at a local consignment shop-due to the very small customer base(small town with just a few tourists passing through) i'm lucky if I sell one a month.I also do the odd commission once in awhile.
If I can get a decent backlog going i'm going to try an Etsy store-but the competition there is awesomely fierce, there are some true artists over there whose products just take my breath away...
Met you at the yesterday @ the York CBG Fest & just viewed some of your canjos. Very nice, I 'msure they will sell like hotcakes. Being there & playing seems to me the best way to go. as I mentioned I sell walking sticks & like the farmers markets. I hired my grand daughter to help me out in the booth. I pay her $10.00 plus 10% on everything we sell, that way she stays motivated. She's 15, older than your daughter, but having some one to cover for you while you take a break is really important, plus I'm guessing she can play.
