Both, craft supplies and unique packaging can be purchased online at very competitive pricing. This article is a guide to your online craft suppliers .

Handmade Craft Supplies Etsy

Are you familiar with Etsy? Did you know that you can buy a variety of craft supplies on Etsy? Vintage buttons, jewelry supplies, packaging, yarn, fabrics, zippers, just to name a few... Not only do you get competitive pricing and excellent selection, but you also enjoy personal attention and unique shopping experience. Many artists use Etsy exclusively for all their art and craft supply needs.

Bubble Mailers

If you own an online business, bubble mailers is a convenient and cheap way to mail your products. And Ebay is one of the best place to shop for mailers - you get a great deal for your buck!

"Handmade" books on Amazon

"The Handmade Marketplace" is an awesome resource for Etsy sellers!!! Highly recommended!

      My daughter has an Etsy store now, and is hoping to make some sales of her crochet items. She says she has several orders to get done for people in the town where she lives.

      Yes , I have done many times, and lots of other online stores too, they seem to have a better choice of new products on the market than Michaels does, and they are the only craft store I have here. I used to sell on Etsy too, love it.
