Handmade Markeplace


I just finished reading this great new book by Kari Chapin, How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally and Online. Its illustrated by Emily Martin of Black Apple etsy fame. I wish  this resource had been around a few years ago- its absolutely packed with tips and knowledge an indie crafter needs to be successful, and covers everything from marketing basics, social media, craft fairs (even a packing list!), to blogging, selling in brick and mortar stores, and basic business practices. Its an easy read, with wisdom and real life advice straight from other crafters. This is the kind of knowledge it takes years to accumulate if you're trying to do it on your own. Whether you're brand new at selling your work, or a seasoned crafter, you'll find this book invaluable.
