Hand-knitted or crocheted items are just one example of something you might begin making as a hobby and later find a profitable venue for.

From Your Own Hands: Self Reliant Projects for Independent Living

At some point you might discover that your homemade hobby actually has business potential. Maybe people have seen your beautiful pottery and asked if you have any for sale. A neighbor of ours has experienced just that - her lifelong passion for pottery has blossomed into a home-based business and, as they had saved money, into a tiny home-attached studio. Maybe you’ve seen some handmade candles at an artisan fair and realized that your own are even prettier, so why not try selling them? Or maybe your home is full of homemade soap you don’t really have much to do with, but making it is too much fun to stop.

There is certainly a niche market for lovingly, individually made items, and you can explore several sales venues, such as:



Artisan fairs. I once had a stand for my candles at a local artisan fair, and it was great fun. The diversity of products made by local artists was amazing, too: pottery, rag dolls, soaps, wood-carved items, and more. Artisan markets are also a great way to make connections with like-minded individuals.

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
