There are some crafts, which can be made even from the chicken and mutton bones, which are thrown out of restaurants. People make necklaces and small skeleton shapes by using chicken bones and it has become a hot craft idea nowadays.
  • If you have a little money, it would be better to buy your raw materials for crafts in bulk through single purchase. When you buy in bulk, you will get some discounts and buying in bulk will save you a lot of time and energy. It may even propel you to do more crafts in the same amount of time because the large amount of materials will tempt your mind to do more work.
  • Decide the kind of market where you want to sell your craft work. You can sell them in the local markets or even online. Some people even sell their crafts by visiting streets, schools, parks, and tourist places. You can ask a storeowner to take your crafts on consignment and sell them on your behalf. This will lessen your profit but will be a more diplomatic way of selling the crafts. At the end of the day, it is completely your decision to choose what kind of business method you should follow.
  • If your product is allowed in the market, the first thing you should do is to promote your product by hanging posters and card in busy places where banners and posters are allowed. Inform all your friends and acquaintance about your business. You should use very catchy and creative caption to hold the audience’s mind in a small amount of time.
  • Make sure to check with your state department of taxation for sales tax formalities in the region where you intend to sell your crafts. You should remember that collecting, reporting, and paying tax is your responsibility.
