What Types of Arts or Crafts do you Handcraft?

OOAK clothing that I have designed along with OOAK cloth dolls that I have made. There are also some dolls that I have repaired as well. One type of doll I have made, I hand painted the faces on them, made their clothing and sewn on the wig for the doll. The supplies needed to make the doll alone are expensive. Any clothing I have made is time consuming, such as crocheted and knitted garments that I have made by hand. I have made a dress and a matching shawl out of criochet cotton. I have seen many items handmade that will cost in the thousands. And these garments handmade garments are worth ebery penny if not more.

Do you Sell Wholesale or Retail?

I seel my items retail through ebay at twopeasinapod123.com or at http://stores.ebay.com/JJMs-Designer-Clothing-and-Dolls craft shows locally until I am able to spread out to further locations. Craft shows have to be convient and well known to be able to get the right people in who are looking for your kind of work and style. Otherwise people who are looking for bargains will have the mindset of being at a yard sale to buy your items for a few dollars. I

Lessons Learned

  • Many people will say that they are able to get the same one of a kind item I made at Wal-Mart. This is not true, for any store that they will mention will not sell handmade/handcrafted items. Most items sold in stores at this day and age are made out of this country. The people that will say anything of this sort, has no clue what it takes to make any handmade item.
