Last week I shared with you how a simple photo album on Facebook is a great way to sell your unwanted yet still usable stuff.
I have also discovered one other way to use facebook albums to sell items.
I create what I call a “craft sale” album, in which I place all my hand made items for viewing.
This idea was born, after I had a friend message me on Facebook that she wanted to purchase some of my dish cloths in a particular color. I thought I already had dish cloths in that color made up but wanted to check if it was what she was thinking. So I snapped a picture and posted on my wall and tagged her in it.
Then a light bulb went off. Why not show pictures of my current handmade items on Facebook so that I no longer had to endure telephone calls of, I would like this shade of…., and me trying desperately to decide if I was envisioning the same shade in my head.
So I threw a dark table cloth over my dining room table and got my crafts out and placed them in piles according to their kind, dish cloths in one pile, flat scrubbies in another, round scrubbies in a third and so on till I had pictures of them all.
Then I uploaded all the photos to Facebook under an album entitled “Crafts For Sale” and under each item wrote a description of what it was, how it was used, why I liked it, and price.
I shared it just once, and it get’s shared again as I add new pieces. I will admit it has been a while since I updated it last.
However, over the Christmas season, when my crafts tend to sell more, I tend keep it updated more often, so my friends have an accurate idea of what colors and items I have available.
Since I don’t produce a lot of crafts for sale, this method works perfectly for me, allowing me to sell the crafts that I don’t give as gifts so that I can replenish my yarn supplies to feed my knitting addiction.
