Work From Home - Handmade Crafts and Antiques

Sep 23, 2009

Happy Work-From-Home Wednesday!
Today’s company is a little different than the ones I have previously profiled. It’s not a company you work for, but rather, a way to work for yourself, doing what you (may) love.

Let me explain. If you are someone who loves making crafts or homemade items, this may be a way for you to make a little extra cash selling your items.

It’s a website called Etsy and it works in a similar way to Ebay, in that you list your items for sale online. The difference, though, is that it’s not an auction-style website. You set your price. And, the only things you can sell on this site are things that you, yourself, have handmade. (You can also sell crafting supplies and vintage items, which are 20 years or older.)

So, if you are a crafty person and wanting to find a way to make a little extra cash with your talents, this might be the way for you to go about it.

And, if you are into antiquing, you might be able to make a profit on some of the “finds” you acquire during your trips to second-hand stores or garage sales.

This could be a great way for you (or someone you know) to make money by starting their own craft or antique business. Don't forget to keep me posted if you start decide to try it out!

Note: I do my best to research all the companies I write about. To my best understanding, they are legitimate. But please, do your own research and NEVER pay money to work for a company!

Etsy is a great site! I tried selling some jewelry on there for awhile. I didn't have any luck, but a lot of people sure do well there!

I'm visiting from MBC. And I love Etsy! I am alway so impressed when I see the things people are making. It's great for inspiration when I feel like the crafty gene has left me. I've helped my MIL set up a site, and it was incredibly user friendly! Oh, I'm also following you now.
