OK....I'm still not 100% sure that I'm going to keep at this whole "make stuff and try and sell it" gig, but I think I'm leaning a little to the "keep at it" camp.
If I do decide to keep at it, I have a lot of decisions to make - the first of which is "what should the focus of my shop be?". I think I've gotten over the *make anything you like, and just go ahead and list it* phase. That just wasn't working.....my shop ended up looking like a craft fair exploded within the walls of my store. I think I should decide on a line of products, that at the very least have some sort of common theme - even beyond the fact that they are crocheted (and I know, I know, not everything I have, or have ever had, has always been crocheted!)
So here's where I could use a few unbiased (or even biased ones are OK) opinions. Should I:
A. Focus on teddy bears and other little crocheted critters? A lot of these can be seen on my Flickr pages, or a few are in my "sold" items on Etsy
B. Stick with the winter wearable items - I'm thinking most folks think these are cr** so I'm not leaning in that direction
C. Focus on little crocheted wallets, keyrings and other cases
D. Something else from some of the things in my sold items - if so, what???
E. Scrap everything...and start all over again...with some unknown thing (any suggestions?)
I'm really stuck. I love to crochet.....so I don't think I could ever stop. BUT, and this is a big but.....I also really need to use this talent and love for creating to make some extra $$ - I need to find something that I love to make, can make proficiently, and also be salable. Any and all suggestions and or opinions would be appreciated.
