I was thinking of selling some handmade ornaments and stockings on-line and was wondering if anyone else has done this and been successful in selling their items.

    The above sites are great. Consider a Facebook page for your items or use your personal one. One thing to remember is, it pays to cultivate a customer liSt with purchases, likes, dislikes. Good luck!

    Have you tried Ebay? Of course there are fees with many options out there but this too will give you an idea of how well it would sell. Keep in mind interests change seasonally as well. What might not sell well in June could go through the roof in December. Pricing also affects it. Try multiple avenues to get a better idea of what works and what doesn't. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. 😀

    Craft fairs are a great place to sell your items. Usually you pay a fee for your table and keep the money from your sales.

    Thanks Roanne for commenting but I'm much on sitting at a craft fair all day, would rather sell online.

    Personally, I use eBay to sell my wares/crafts. As was said above, try to be cognizant of the time of the year, especially if said items are seasonal/holiday specific.

    another tip should you opt to sell online..... do searches on the site(s) you plan to use, that way you get a price range, amount of others selling same or similar. If a zillion people are selling say,.....beaded purses, maybe make something that is still cool, but not all that common. The ole supply and demand.

    Sometimes I sell xx item personalized to the buyer. Thus I have varied pictures for the potential buyer to see. Also use quality material for making your items. Sadly you pretty much make only a little over the cost of the items bought. If you make really detailed jewely, you should fare better. Good luck!!! :-)

    Thank-you answering my question, most of the comments didn't really do that.
