Default Do you still buy handmade crafts?

Are there still people interested in purchasing handmade crafts? I'm not talking about stuff from the wholesale catalogs that is imported. I would like to start selling in craft shows. I hand paint on shovels and love to do tole painting for the holidays. I have tried E-Bay with no luck, it costs way to much to list and paypal is too expensive. Would love your feedback, Thanks!

Absolutely! People love to buy homemade crafts. That is why they have craft shows. If you are doing it just for the enjoyment and to earn a little extra money, that is great. You probably won't get rich selling crafts unless you can market them to a large customer base and mass produce them.

Yes,but you have to diversify. try setting up a store on E-bay and selling both hand crafted and inexpensive items that are mass produced but cheap to buy as impulse purchases.

No, not anymore because so much of it is too-too country - blue ribbons on geese, etc.
