Fresno, Ca (PRWEB) September 21, 2008
Painters, sculptors, woodworkers and other artisans now have a way to turn their hobbies into profitable businesses.
Introducing MadeitMyself.com, a new online marketplace where users can buy and sell handmade goods. It's the perfect way for vendors to display their unique wares while buyers search for and purchase one of a kind, hard to find items.
For buyers, MadeitMyself.com eliminates the need to spend countless weekends scouring the craft fair circuit to find that special item. Collectors of imported goods no longer need to travel abroad or pay exorbitant importer/exporter fees, or bid on items at live auction.
For sellers, MadeitMyself.com is the perfect way to complement or even replace their current method of doing business. The site's nominal fees are much more affordable than those associated with online auction sites, and the global visibility their goods receive are far superior to what a craft show or store can provide.
MadeitMyself.com is also a great way for the casual hobbyist to make some extra cash. For those who have always been told, "You should sell these" by friends and relatives, now they can. A digital camera and a few mouse clicks are all that's needed to turn a hobby into a small business.
How it works
Unlike online auction services, MadeitMyself.com allows sellers to either set their price or negotiate with buyers. Items for sale on MadeitMyself.com vary widely, and there's little limit to what can be sold on the site, provided it's handmade and legal to sell. Current categories include: accessories, arts and photography, bags and purses, books, clothing, decorations, baby items, pet items, furniture, garden products, holiday items, home decor, jewelry, items for kids, music, organic products, pottery, religious items, miscellaneous, toys, wedding items, and woodworks.
Along with the online marketplace, MadeitMyself.com also provides a community feature where buyers and sellers can make special requests, share new ideas, collaborate on projects and much more.
