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.
I met Amanda about 5 years ago she moved to Canberra and I had The Makers Hub open, facilitating craft workshops. She runs LLL Designs, a fun and fabulous handmade Jewellery Biz, with a focus on bold designs that bring a smile to peoples faces. You can find her pieces online here.
Read more about Amanda in my Meet the Maker blog feature here.
If you want to have your own business like Amanda 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!
