im curious...you said you sold some at a indie craft show...how much do you sell them for? I'm curious if indie shows are better than sites like say etsy...
(youre up on the blog now too btw)
Thanks Johloh I just noticed it that's really awesome I'm so delighted, thank you. I've been away for a bit hopefully I'll have some more stuff to show soon.
To your question: With my experience of going to craft shows and checking out Etsy it's pretty much the same deal with regards to price tags. Obviously at a craft show you don't have to pay a shipping charges but that's about the only perk you get. Also everyone vending at the craft shows have Etsy accounts anyway and it looks like they charge the same amount. And regarding 8-bit it's the same thing. It's can be pricey. My girlfriend and I went to Renegade in San Fransisco in July and there was one guy with Nintendo figurine hair clips and magnets made out of Shrinky Dinks for $22 and up.
Personally I try to give good deals. At the craft show I sold some Mario and Pacman ghosts for cheap, because I built them from old Lego bricks I had lying around the house. But just within this year the price for Lego bricks have gone up drastically. I'm actually in the process of creating an Etsy account for these sculptures and I'm doing all I can to keep costs low. I'm buying Lego bricks used and trying to find them at yard sales or at thrift stores.
Sorry for rambling on.
And thanks again to everyone who commented. I appreciate it.
