    Thank you for these links! You always have such awesome tips and information and have really inspired and motivated me to take the next step with my handmade shop. It started out as a hobby but I’m learning more about it and myself and how much I love creating. I have so many ideas and I’m jumping at the bit to start them. I always love coming here because I know I can find a lot of good info.

    Anywho- THANK YOU!

    Awesome links – I especially love the one from Oh My! :) I have been brainstorming ways to build business and add value without having a sale. I believe my items are worth what they are priced at and it kills me to have a sale! I work really hard on them and feel like I am cutting myself short. That article was very helpful – and now I am following that blog too! :) Thanks girl! xoxo

    something to consider — set your prices to an amount that when offering a sale you are still making enough of a profit.

    you took the words right out of my mouth! i thought the same thing about my prices being fair and having a sale would just devalue my items. i went to a sewing expo and took a class on building your biz. the lady said, you want your prices to be prices that you can’t afford. you are to reach a demographic that is higher than you and your friends. that has always stuck with me.

    Thanks Gussy!

    I love this, I also loved your post about good books to read to help you out too! I wanted to buy one, but I’m not sure which one to get. If you had to pick one, which would it be? Or, should I just close my eyes and pick one? They all look great, but I can’t spend a ton on books.

    Thanks!
    Can’t wait to read all of these!

    great sites! i read the ohmyhandmade entry & agree with it. it’s so helpful and reassured my thoughts on having that end of the year sale, which i didn’t do, and glad i didn’t.

    keep up the great work & looking forward to your shop opening.
