For instance we have a very well known handicraft dealer who is selling his craft in the UK on the internet with many UK stores. They have sold over 2,000 handicrafts at $70+ a piece.

Secondly, you must have the financial ability, and have a stable income for what you’re doing. Obviously the biggest cost for starting your own business is money and most of us have seen how hard it is to get started and make money doing what you love, and that’s the craft.
It’s not as easy as trying to start a business out of your garage, or your garage garage, but if you stick to your guns and work hard and invest the time, the rewards can be great and you can make a good living from your craft from then on.
