The Handmade Marketplace by Kari Chapin

Home Library: The Handmade Marketplace

Ever thought about selling your own wares? Before putting a price tag on anything or setting up a gallery on Etsy, you might consider forking over $10 for a copy of Kari Chapin's The Handmade Marketplace. The nuggets of advice she and other crafters offer in the quaint book are priceless.

Many creative DIY artists are turning their hobbies into livings, but too often they look back and say they would have done some things differently. Pricing, packaging, branding, accounting, and marketing are all subjects that should be considered before heading to a fair. Kari, along with other experts in the field, covers it all and then some. One tip? Instead of posting amateur photos of your handiwork, she and Matt Stinchcomb from Etsy reveal a quick secret that will instantly give your photos a professional feel. Having this book in your back pocket will be like holding a wise sage's hand through a sometimes tough process. You'll be dog-earring and highlighting your way through the content, and by end of the 220 page text, you'll be glad you won't have to ask, "Why didn't anybody tell me?"
