I got to play shopgirl at Wild Rivers Wool yesterday while the owners were attending to family business. I'd never have guessed I'd be happy being surrounded by wool. I started crocheting while pregnant with my daughter umpty-three years ago and have done that periodically through the decades but never thought to be able to make that hobby support itself. Since the shop opened last spring my consignment items have paid for their materials and left enough behind to cover my addiction to books and cds as well as the grandkid gifts for the coming holiday. I'm not likely to make a fortune at handcrafts (or anything else for that matter!) but not being a financial drain is an excellent, and necessary step.
