Just a general moan about the way some people undervalue handmade items. Since ebay has been offering 20 free listings per month and often offers free listing weekends I occasionally list some of my items there. I currently have one of my felted pictures listed at £15 (the same as on here) and yesterday got a best offer with the following message:
“Hi, I really like your picture. Did you make it yourself? How long did it take you? I would like to buy it but cannot afford £15. I am offering £3.50 as I assume you made it yourself”
So does that mean that if I had bought it in from some mass produced factory it would have been worth £15 but because I made it myself it is only worth £3.50?!
Needless to say I didn’t accept the offer!
