Yes, people do buy handmade crafts. Set up at local craft shows, but one warning, you'll never ever recop your time put into making the craft. If you're doing it to make money, forget it.

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.
