A few months ago I had the honour of volunteering in the Dominican Republic for 5 weeks. As a part of my fundraising efforts, I made and sold brooches and hair barrettes.
Since they were such a hit, I decided to make more. This time around I used more interesting centres. I raided my grandmothers old button drawer and came across some interesting finds. I tried to envision the stories behind all the buttons and wondered which fabulous fashion pieces they belonged to over the last 60 years.
I’m currently trying to determine the best marketplace to sell these in. Etsy certainly has crossed my mind but I wonder if applicable shipping costs will be a deterrent since these are low-cost items. I’m open to suggestions so please leave a comment if you have any ideas how I might sell these “fresh picks”.
