I visited the Handmade Canberra Markets late last year and interviewed a bunch of my friends to find out how they got started and what advice they might have for YOU to take the plunge and apply to sell your thing at a local market.
Rebecca of Blue Radish designs and hand-prints luxe linens has some great advice on building trust with your customers and avoiding comparisons when attending a market.
Read more about Blue Radish in the Meet the Maker blog post feature here.
If you want to have your own business like Rebecca and if you think you still need help in identifying who your customers are, you could consider joining the Maker’s Academy which is a membership for makers and creatives such as yourself wanting to learn how to sell your stuff so you can replace your 9-5 income with something you are more excited about. My purpose is to help you achieve that.
