Is Making Duplicates Good Business?
by Jackie Davidson.
If I make an item that generates a lot of interest and sells quickly, what do you think about making a duplicate to sell at my next show?
I don’t claim to sell “one-of-a-kind” pieces, but do people expect “one-of-a-kind” from hand-crafted?
If I come up with a great design, I often make variations on it with different beads and colors, but sometimes I’d like to make a duplicate. Often people express interest in buying items that sold already, too… That, obviously, requires making a duplicate.
I’d appreciate hearing what you all think! Thanks!
