In today’s episode, Katie and Sharon introduced their summer series on selling art but talking about some of the basics. They covered things you should probably be thinking about before you jump in with both feet; venues in which you might sell your art and why some might work better for you than others, and the sometimes painful/difficult process of pricing your art.
We don’t have any images for you this week but Sharon did mention a couple of books that you might find helpful when venturing into the world of selling arts and crafts. The first was The Handmade Marketplace, by Kari Chapin, which you can find on Amazon here http://www.amazon.com/Handmade-Marketplace-2nd-Locally-Globally/dp/161212335X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1401841615&sr=1-1&keywords=handmade+marketplace.
Sharon also mentioned a book called Crafty Superstar, by Grace Dobush, there is more than one version of this book available, but this one looks to be the newer one of the two so it is probably the most up to date. http://www.amazon.com/Crafty-Superstar-Ultimate-Craft-Business/dp/1440320373/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1401841730&sr=1-1&keywords=crafty+superstar.Remember, you can also find these books at your locally owned small book stores!
