Default Re: To Sell or Not to Sell...that is the Question?

When I was little my grandparents sold dollhouses and wooden crafts at fairs. The other night I asked my grandmother some pointed questions, about being copied by others, etc. She said it happened all the time, and my grandfather thought it was pretty flattering. To each their own, I guess. Personally, I'm not flattered.
But anyway, I think people will copy you now matter what you do, if you sell in a boutique, online, or at a fair. I think you are right, to make sure it's the best it can be before putting it out there. Since you made it, copycat items will not be any where near as nice as what you spent all that time prefecting. GL!
