My Humble Beginnings

When my husband and I first started selling on the Internet, I looked at the fact that my husband was good at woodworking and had a passion for it. I had extensive knowledge of how to use the Internet for business, my creative juices begin to go into overdrive as I thought about his skills and my knowledge of the Internet.

I did a search of the Internet to see what type of wood products people were selling online. At that time wooden boxes were a popular product and the purchase price was pretty high. A new business idea was birthed. I thought about all the crafters in need of wooden products that could benefit from the lower cost we could provide since we were working out of our home, and our overhead expenses were very low.

To make a long story short we started the business offering our very own unique designs of unfinished wooden products. The business did quite well and it took off quickly!

One of our wooden boxes was featured on the Martha Steward Show back when she was hosting a craft show on TV. Our Wooden Box business was also featured on an episode of Extreme Home Makeover!

I have always favored selling products online because it has been proven to be a good way to make money online after all the whole world is your marketplace!
