I wish I had my own shop

It's interesting how it seems my table at the artist market is becoming a mini occult shop based on my own creations. The main things that seem to sell lately are my candles and oils. But there is interest in my other spiritual creations - so I keep bringing almost everything I do. That's becoming a lot to haul back and forth every week. I'm really wishing I had a real storefront but I'd need the customers to justify and support the cost of renting a space somewhere. I'd like to at least rent a space at the artist market but they don't have any open spaces available. If I did have my own pagan/occult shop my intent would not be to compete with the couple stores I know of around here since it would be mostly based on the ritual tools and supplies I create. I would probably supplement those things with resale pagan items, but it wouldn't be the main thing I do. I really feel like it's my spiritual calling to be able to offer my ritual creations to the world and each year I feel a stronger push to get out there and do it - but now it seems its not the right time because of the economy. It doesn't seem to be a good idea to open up a shop when people are not really up to spending money on "extras". Yet I keep feeling this push and I keep creating. I feel fulfilled creating spiritual things, but I need to make sales to re-supply my creative habits.

Have you tried selling on ebay? just a thought. if this is your true calling, maybe meditating with your guides will bring a solution.

I use Etsy and my own websites. eBay just isn't what it used to be and it's harder to market handmade creations there. I try again every so often but I've had better luck on Etsy - not to metion eBay's fees take all my profit!

The weight of the machined materials depends on how the Plungers Toilet Brush part will be used. While heavier materials take up nice deal of|quite so much of|a substantial amount of} stress, they are not seem to be|they aren't} appropriate for weight-sensitive tasks. Lightweight materials are durable and might absorb a considerable amount of stress, but they come at a higher price ticket.
