Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been communicating lately. ...I have no excuse...
But I could use your help and advice! My mom is thinking of retiring soon and she'd like to start her own Etsy business (just like her daughter!) just to keep herself busy. She is an ELITE knitter. She's so good, it's incredible. Here's a picture of one of the hat's she's made and would like to eventually make more in different colors to sell:
My question is, does anyone think they would be interested in buying something like this? And does anyone have any suggestions of websites where she could promote her products? DeviantArt does get a lot of yarn-enthusiasts, so here might be one option, but I think Tumblr isn't really the right place to show off hats (not the right audience), and I'm not sure what other websites would give her good traffic.
Thank you so much for your honesty and feedback! My mom is so excited to start selling hats, but I know how hard it can be to build an audience. I just don't want her to be discouraged! Any honest feedback would be super helpful (and she would probably freak out from excitement).
