Making extra money from a hobby or pastime such as knitting or crochet.

The whole world is struggling with the difficult financial climate we find ourselves in, the price of petrol and diesel has remained high, house prices have skyrocketed, fresh, healthy food is hard to find at an affordable price and energy costs are crippling most households.  During this economic recession many, ordinary, hard working people are trying to make extra money for their families by using a hobby or pastime, such as knitting or crochet to supplement their incomes.  They invest in several Crochet Kits supplied by a professional company such as Wool Couture to make and then sell beautiful, colourful, crochet creations made from soft wool and using patterns supplied by the company. They then take these stunning handmade items to a local craft fair or market where they can easily sell them for a profit.

Using an exclusive kit that contains everything you need to get started on a crochet project of your own is the most cost-effective method for you to partake in this lucrative way of making extra money.  If you are naturally artistic, creative and talented with your hands you will definitely be able to use these kits to your advantage and make money from your completed crochet items. Do your homework and check out the best local craft fairs and markets close to you, go there as a customer and look for potential rivals, and then price your items competitively.  Arrive at your chosen venue early so you can set up and display your products attractively.

Have your most colourful, interesting and reasonable items at the front of your stall to attract potential customers, once you have their attention you can promote your more expensive creations and hopefully make more money.  Keep your pricing strategy simple and competitive, have plenty of change to give your customers and you could even invest in a portable credit card machine so that people can buy your more expensive items even if they don’t have enough cash on them.  Get your whole family involved so that they can help you with the practical side of making your crochet creations as well as selling them with you at the local craft fairs and markets. This could be a real enterprise for you and your family and make you decent amounts of extra income.
