Where should I sell my Valentine’s Day crafts?
If you are new to making money with a craft hobby, then finding a place to actually sell your items might be holding you back from starting your side hustle. The great news…there are many ways you can sell your crafts, either online or through local events!
Do some research to find out if there are any local places to sell crafts. You can even search online for “places to sell crafts near me,” and search engines are usually pretty good at finding exactly what you need.
You can also search for local craft fairs, farmer markets, or locally owned shops that might consider selling your items in their store.
You can start an Etsy shop online for free. They do take a percentage of the sales price, so keep that in mind when you are pricing your valentines crafts.
It can take some time before people start seeing your products on your Etsy page, so it’s a good idea to start posting your products early. A good way to know when to start posting seasonal items is when you notice stores are putting out seasonal items. So if you see Valentine’s Day decor out December 26…then it’s time to post those items online. (Crazy, right?!)
When selling on Etsy, make sure you use good keywords to help your items be found on search. Think of all the ways someone might type in the search bar to find your item and include those words in your listing and description.
Selling on the Facebook Marketplace is another great way to sell your craft items online. People are often already shopping on Facebook Marketplaces and it can be an easy way to gain exposure without spending money on a booth at a craft fair.
Instagram is a great place to showcase your crafts because it is all about beautiful pictures. Over time you can build your following and sell to your audience. It can take time to grow your following, so the sooner you start the better!
