Many Americans are making six figure income from the luxury of their own home, just by selling handmade items, arts & crafts products or vintage items they collected.
Check out this podcast for inspiration:
If somebody from a remote country can do it, why can’t you do it in America – the land of opportunity?
From handmade to digital to vintage to supplies, you can find tons of craft-related and creative enterprises on the Internet. I personally have sold everything from leather goods my friends made to (digital) invitation designs, jewelry supplies to artwork.
Here is the secret: Sell them on Etsy.
There are four very broad categories of things that sell on Etsy:
Handmade items — do you make jewelry, sew clothes or good at making decorpage, hobby craft, paper craft, quilling, and sequins? Or perhaps your a talented painter or photographer? Are you skilled and artistic? Surely, your friends praised you always and highly recommend you to their friends? Things like doll clothes, artwork, toys, quilts, jewelry, knitted shawls, soaps, and even edibles like candy.
Vintage items — clothing, shoes, toys, accessories, and small items like buttons and jewelry. If crafting isn’t your thing, but you frequent car boot sales or garage sales, and have an eye for vintage treasures, you can sell those too!
Digital products — invitations, photo collages, custom posters, scrapbook layouts, and printable planners
Supplies — yarn, fabric, wooden rings, rhinestones, sequins, candy molds, beads, twine, patterns and stencils, scrapbooking paper, etc.
Etsy.com is an online marketplace for all things handmade. Etsy has lots of traffic. Etsy’s Alexa world rank is 136 (41 in the US), which is pretty awesome.
