I have been getting all kinds of craft catalog with craft kits in them. They are all very well priced. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with selling crafts or craft kits online. I know if would have to be a seasonal thing. With Mardi Gras & Valentines Day right around the corner now would be the time to place items like that up for sale, I think!

I bet you could generate a few sales for them online. Have you compared the purchase prices of the kits with similar items online? Are there a lot of people selling the kits already? It might be one of those companies that is trying to saturate the market. If that's the case, you may need to sell off line as well. Good Luck

There are quite a few options for selling handmade items online. Quite a few crafters sell their items on Ebay. Ebay has a huge amount of traffic on their site everyday and if your item is properly priced the chances that it will sell are great, especially if you are selling Mardi Gras or Valentine's Day items. Etsy.com is a site that sells handmade items and supplies. It is a cmpetitive site with many talented crafters, but the site allows you to make your own shop and the fees with Etsy are a bit better than Ebay. E-crater is another site, more like Ebay, it allows you to sell anything and listings are free. Traffic to the site is limited and you'll have to drive traffic to your store through self-promoting. Good Luck!

Did you try eBay ? Also try to make a blog to make people know about it. See my profile for that, I think I have a good place for where you could start advertizing your product.
