Things are a bit tight at Chez Whiskeratti, as with so many other people today. I still have my job, thank Ceiling Cat, but employers do love to make us feel insecure about them, don't they? I think it's in their DNA.
And my goal is to move from NC back home to Tallahassee, FL. Which takes green papers.
Part time jobs are hard to come by these days, so I'm thinking of opening my own Etsy shop to sell things I make. I LOVE working with my hands. I love medieval/fantasy stuff. Last year I made three items I am very proud of. Two small beds for 6 inch action figures, and a castle that I bought from a craft store and remodeled to look more like a real medieval castle.
Attached below are the pictures. What I'm hoping for is a bit of market research here today. I remember when I was looking for beds like these, and the only ones I found that I wanted were very expensive. One was $75; it was beautiful, truly, but $75???? Who can afford that? So I made my own.
I guess my ideal consumer would be someone who wants something whimsical for themselves or an older child, but doesn't want to make it themselves, and certainly doesn't want to spend $75 or more on it.
So I'm tossing this out to anyone who wants to comment on these. I'm not asking anyone to buy - though you certainly could! - just see if it's something that might end up on someone's wish list.
Right now I'm thinking of $45 for each bed. $50 for the castle. Plus shipping. And yes, I would very much welcome input on the pricing. I've never sold like this before.
