Where to Sell Your Handmade Goods in Rochester

January 31st, 2022

Crafting has taken on a whole new life. People are finding that they can make desired goods that will make them a little money along the way. Plenty of crafting groups have sprung up on social media that specifically look at helping people in the Rochester area find ways to sell their lovely products, but it goes beyond that as well. There are many great places in the physical space of Rochester that are also great for selling products and making some extra money.

Small, Community-Owned Businesses

World markets have been shaken at this time with trade overseas dropping by a total of 9.5% in the first half of 2020 as the global pandemic took off. The total drop in global trade during that year compared to the previous year (2019) was 16 percent. With supply chains rattled and a lack of clarity about where things are headed next, some communities have turned inward and propped up more community-based forms of trade.

Plenty of handmade goods can be found for sale in the Rochester shop Little Button Craft. Primarily, the crafts that are on display are from the owners of the shop itself, but they occasionally reach out to other local artists to work on collaborations and to purchase goods from them that they will use in their shop. You can see the fine craftsmanship that has gone into the various goods that are available.

Try to take a particularly close look at the wood goods that they have available from time to time. These goods are some of their most durable and most cherished because of their longevity and ability to withstand just about anything thrown at them. When asked in a survey, 92% of people said that they plan to keep the wood furniture that they own for at least 15 years. They know that this furniture is built to last, and they don’t throw it out like they might with furniture made from less durable materials.

Rochester-Made Goods

Creators will have a much easier time finding a market for their goods at a place like this. Roc Made Goods is a crafts market that is open to anyone who makes something that other people in their community might want to buy. They set up the market so that people can come and look at all of the different crafts at one time. They know that if they are hosting an event that requires an event tent (as these markets often do), it makes sense to also rent tables and other supplies from the same rental company, and that is precisely what they do. The creators of the various crafts can pay a small fee to occupy the space of one of those tables and put their goods out for everyone to check out and see what they might like to buy. It is a winning formula that works for everyone who participates in it.

Make sure if you want to participate in this crafts market that you pay close attention to the dates that they have available. This past year, they were only open for two weeks, and those who didn’t get in on the action were simply left out. You need to keep close tabs on what they have going on and when you can apply to get in. Failure to do so may mean that you have to wait until the next season to try to sell your goods at this particular location

The desire to purchase homemade crafts is not going away anytime soon. If you are particularly talented at making a particular type of craft, then you need to check out how to sell what you have created, and you need to figure out a way to get those goods out to the people who are eager to buy them from you.
