Art/Design small business ideas or Basketry/Canework
To be successful in this money maker, you need to keep a good standard of workmanship.
Brightly colored designs have a wide appeal, but try to combine clever designs
with practical purposes. Study the market and offer your products on sale or
return to gift and novelty shops, stores, women's exchanges etc. Popular items
are lamp shades, baskets, mats, trays, footstools, hats, chair seats and backs.
There's no reason why you cannot have your own line of fine products that can
be sold as art pieces. Another way of making money from this hobby is to conduct
classes, teaching people how to produce simple basketry/canework items. If you're
particularly skilled and have a good way with people, you could always sell
yourself as a demonstrator where malls pay you to demonstrate your skills on
stage for craft promotions etc. This money maker is about using your creativity
to turn a simple hobby into money.
