Selling everything you need to work from home by filling orders and owning Mad About Molds.This job has allowed me to be at home to raise our family for the past 15 years! Our kids are grown now so I'm pursuing other things. I've been able to pay for many things, we would never have been able to afford without this business. My family has benefited from me being available for those days you dread going to work or sporting events, sick days, going on field trips, doctors appointments. No asking the boss for days off to go on weekend getaways or vacations. Work in your PJ's if you want too. I never even posted a phone number so no phones to answer when kids are screaming or the dog is barking.The purchase of this business includes:•Supplies: starter clay, packing supplies•Equipment: small oven, clay machine, hot-plate, tools.•1,000 charms to make 1,000 molds.

If you contribute to online forums, newsletters, social networking and classifieds the orders will come in. I never needed to pay for advertising for this business, but I can recommend a clay magazine that would be my top choice for the best market in the business. Also selling on Ebay and Esty filters the right customers directly to your website by advertising it in orders and email communication. By selling a few choice products on these platforms hooks your customers in when they learn you have 1,000 molds to choose from on your website. They come back for more and many times they will bring their friends as well.Most of our feedbacks received on our Ebay account have been from selling these molds. (100% Positive feedback.)The arts and crafts business is just booming right now online!
