When my husband and I first started selling on the Internet, I looked at the fact that my husband was good at woodworking and had a passion for it. My creative juices begin to go into over drive as I thought about his skills and my knowledge of the Internet.
I did a search of the Internet to see what type of wood products people were selling online, at that time wooden boxes was a popular product and the purchase price was pretty high. A new business idea was birthed. I thought about all the crafters in need of wooden products that could benefit from the lower cost that we could provide.
Since we were working out of our home and our overhead expenses was very low, I figured we could offer good pricing on our products. I came up with items no one else was selling, our very own unique designs of unfinished wooden products. To make a long story short we started out on the Internet selling unfinished wooden boxes and other unfinished wooden products and the business did quite well and it took off quickly.
One of our wooden boxes was featured on the Martha Steward show and later down the road on Extreme Home Makeover ! I have always favored selling products online because it has been proven to be a good way to make money online, after all the whole world is your marketplace!
