Stephanie over at Crafts for Kidlets has some helpful advice on creating cash from crafts.
Two things that I love are seeing people who are passionate about crafting, and children with an entrepreneurial spirit.
I know that most of the crafts that I have posted here have been geared toward the younger kids. But what if your tween/teen wants to turn their crafting hobby into profit?
Perhaps your child has a passion for:
- jewelry making
just to name a few things. I know out here on the East Coast, Spring and Fall are huge for craft fairs and the Summer is a great time for Yard Sales (Tag Sales as we refer to them!).
If your family, friends or neighbors are having a tag sale, perhaps your child can set up a table with his or her goods to sell.
Now the other places that I mentioned for selling your crafts are:
- Etsy – You can set up your own site with customized banners. It costs 20 cents to list an item for 4 months.
- eBay is another place to list your items. There is a cost associated with it, depending on the amount of the sale.
- Lily’s Craft Store Mall is one other place you can list your crafts. You pay a monthly fee for the website, but the actual craft listings are free.
Do any of you use the sites Stephanie lists for selling your crafts? Tell us how its going for you. Drop a comment.
