Have you ever thought of selling your crafts but couldn't find the right venue? By now, many crafters have heard that HouseMart Ben Franklin Crafts has a locker box program which might just be the way for you to sell your crafts and manage a small business. You simply go to one of the BFC stores in Hawaii and apply to rent a 18 x 18 clear acrylic locker box and you can start stocking your merchandise. Every month you pay $30,$40, or $50 depending on the location of the box and you are responsible to pay tax on your sales.
Here are three views of my locker box in the Hilo Ben Franklin Crafts. As you can see I have a variety of items stuffed (LOL!) into my little box.
I struggle keeping my box replenished because the items are very different from what I make for this blog and there never seems to be enough time to do it all. Setting up a mini store requires learning many new skills like bookkeeping, display spatial analysis, marketing, etc. but it is an exciting challenge.
Here is a close up view of the latest additions to my locker box. The items in the front are macaron clothes pin clips.
