What are some things to sell?
I really don't have much money, but I would like to make some. I can't get out and get a job because I am only 14. (I will be 15 in July, but by that time I will be volunteering at a summer camp) I have tried making hemp bracelets and selling them on both Craigslist and eBay. (not at the same time. lol that would be disastrous!) But they did not sell. I have also tried handmade soap. Along with something else, but I don't remember what it was now. None of them sold. All of my stuff now goes on Craigslist. Mainly because I don't have to pay for posting. I don't want to waist money on posting the item then it doesn't sell I would be wasting even more money. So... finally to the question. What are some other things I can sell? I am currently making some tile coasters and have them up on Craigslist. www.flickr.com/photos/84555452@N07/... The first few pictures are the coasters I have made. I am currently making lighter blue ones with flower pictures on them. Thanks! :)
Oh, now I remember what else I have tried. I have tried duct tape items (bows and wallets) I only sold 2 wallets.
Well the problem was I was spending money. I still am because of all the products I need. I found on eBay that my items were never noticed or they were on someones watch list or something, but was never bidden on or bought. I looked into etsy and it seems that they have a lot or maybe too many of people trying to sell their items on there. So if I posted there I would still have problems.
*Well the thing is
The problem is using Craigslist. It isn't set up for small entrepreneurs to sell products to consumers.
Try etsy or zazzle, they specialize in unique hand made products, or go back to eBay. You gotta spend money to make money.
