How to Make Money From Macrame

How To Start and Run a Profitable Craft Business: "CHANGING THEMES FOR BETTER SALES: THREE EXAMPLES

Example 1:

Macrame items are generally sold in plant shops, and sometimes in furniture stores. One clever artist, with declining sales, decided to work his macrame craft into a different marketing theme. This artist drilled holes in wooden 'ABC' baby blocks, which he used as beads in his macrame to make a plant hanger for a baby's room. He sold this idea to an exclusive department store that displayed his product with baby furniture rather than in the plant section. He thus transformed his macrame work into a new product and fitted it into a new marketing theme, where it found its natural outlet with other baby accessories."
