Sell what you love

Sell what you love



I recently read a great article on etsy, which had some of the best advice. 

Sell what you love and sell and what you would create for yourself. 

 

For me, figuring out what to sell is an ongoing process. I sometimes tend to get wrapped up in whatever is popular at the moment and would sell, but then it doesn't excite me. But when you love and believe in your product, and design and make what you want to wear or use, creating these items will be fun, and this will help keep you motivated.

I am quite literally my target market. I design things I want. This is how my business started.
I wanted some cushions for my house, I had an idea in my head and it developed from there.
When I make something, it's because I want it for myself – and then I make some more to sell.

So whenever I find myself caught up in ideas that I'm not passionate about, I think back to this advice and it always gets me focused again.

  1. Great post. I try not to get too wrapped up in trends but it's hard not to. I find myself getting bored of making the same thing over and over again. Keeping things fresh with new designs always inspires me to keep going!
