Let's help each other. What do you sell?
In reading the very interesting thread that MoniDew started below, it occurred to me that we might be able to help each other out in these difficult economic times.

In the Buy/Sell/Swap forum, there is already a sticky for people to post links to their knitting-related businesses, as well as links to advertisers who support Amy & Sheldon and our beloved KH. I know I don't use these resources as much as I should. Let's use all of them as much as possible!

Also, how about using this thread to allow folks to advertise their non-knitting related businesses? I'd feel better about buying my tea from MoniDew than a big online retailer, as just one example.

Plenty of folks out there must have their own websites, Etsy shops, or brick & mortar stores. Tell us about them! The only way we can support you is if we know about you!

My dad and I were discussing something like this...... More a *dreamer*s idea (which I'm good at. But I've been told the world needs more dreamers. Not sure where I stand on that one. ) of what if people completely stopped buying from stores like Walmart and Target, ect. What if we placed the economy and each other before "low prices"? My goal is for the next 6 months, try to buy locally from small stores or online from other people (etsy shops, etc.) as much as I can. Sure, I know that saying I'm never going to set foot in a big box store isn't feasable. But IMHO, I think we would be better off without them.
Just my 2cs.

Also, I wish there was a place like Etsy, for things more than crafting items. Like dailey lifestyle kind of things.... But thinking about it, there is nothing I can really think of that's not on Etsy and that I cannot buy online or locally. Ebay is another alternative.... but I really disklike ebay.


What is anyone's imput on this?

I really only sell some of the things I knit...I used to sell Avon, but, I was spending more than making so I quit selling it...lol...I really want to get into making my own lip balms and soaps and stuff, but, I don't even have enough money to start up. Bah!

Oh yeah, to answer your question the first time, I sell market bags. (which, um yeah. Knitting and crocheted market bags are kinda hard to sell to crafters. ) LOL I'm hoping to add to what I am doing later on though. I'm selling in 2 locations, and I am hoping to start selling in 2 more, another local, and another one, local or not only time will tell.

Hysterical!

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Carey (Abbily) for her tea purchase! Yes, it really does help struggling small business owners! I think this is a great idea, having been a direct beneficiary of it already.
EDIT: We've now got a directory!
