But along similar lines, I'm looking for advice from some of you blogging shop keepers (do you see what I did there? Clever, huh?). Having been inspired by some of the home-made goodies I've bought recently, my mind has been wandering.
If someone was maybe possibly considering - at some point in the future - selling their ..... oh I don't know, let's say ..... monkey related products ..... what would be the best way to go about it?
Etsy? A shop on their blog? Ebay?
If anyone could give me any advice I'd be grateful ..... maybe along the lines of "Don't do it, it's never worth the stress and hassle", but even better would be "Do it - you'll be a millionaire by the end of the month!".
Some of the things rattling round my head currently are :-
PayPal ..... good or bad?
How do you put a price on your creations ..... hand-crafted goods take so much time and effort but that can't be reflected in the price .... can it?
Can my monkees really take over the world (mwah ha ha ha!) or should I just let them take over the house?
Any thoughts or advice would be gratefully accepted either in my comments or by email to email@example.com but in the meantime, I'll leave you with this thought ......
Handbag sized monkey, anyone?
