Lucrative Home Business - Articles Surfing
Looking for a fun and profitable home based Internet business to make money online? Consider selling used, collectible, and vintage needlework books and patterns over the Internet. I have been an online bookseller for a number of years, specializing in these types of publications. The field is wide open for anyone wanting to earn extra money or start a profitable small business.
Online book selling is a huge business. Many successful Internet booksellers specialize in particular book topics to increase profits and repeat sales. How to books and pattern leaflets are in steady demand by needleworkers. Used and older publications are readily available and inexpensive for dealers to buy. Often there are no just a few similar titles for sale by competing dealers.
This article will teach you how to recognize vintage needlework books and patterns and where to buy them. How to price your publications, where to sell used and old books for maximum profits.
What to Buy
For instance, a book on making beaded flowers is likely to be in demand. A general how-to bead book is not. Likewise, a pattern booklet on tatting Christmas decorations will probably sell better than a general guide to tatting stitches.
Knitting & Crochet - books and patterns on shawls, stoles, hats, dolls, toys, beaded, embellished, loom knitting
Tatting - most anything related
Quilting * Books and patterns on special or unusual techniques of all kinds or unusual quilted items
Beading * Books and patterns on beaded flowers, trees, Christmas ornaments, rings, bracelets
Sewing * Books and patterns on 1950s, retro (1960s * 70s) fashions and accessories of all kinds, costumes, soft toys and dolls
This is just a small sampling of what's available to the seller. There are hundreds of focused topics that have been published in vintage needlework books and patterns.
How to Recognize Collectible Books & Patterns
Publications that are 30 years old or more are usually considered to be *vintage*. These often include techniques and projects not available in modern books. How to books can be soft cover or hardback. Often small older soft covers offer the most focused (and profitable!) subject matter.
Pattern leaflets are soft covers usually under 30 pages. These older pattern booklets are popular with needle workers as they usually are packed with vintage pattern designs and ideas.
Where to Buy Used and Antique Needlework Books & Patterns
Second Hand & Thrift Stores:
There are other sources where you can find books * auctions, other online dealers etc. You should be able to find as ready supply of publications priced for now more than a dollar or two.
Where to Sell Your Used Books & Patterns:
Internet Book Stores:
Wherever you prefer to buy or sell, old, used, and collectible needlework books and vintage patterns offer a fun niche for a lucrative home Internet business.
