It really makes me feel good that these people write, even though they can't buy. But I feel sorry that they can't enjoy one of my works.
That got me thinking. I used to make a fair number of less expensive items, but overtime, with the increase in the cost of materials (copper!), and also the growth of my skill level, it seemed not to make sense to spend all that time taking pictures and wrapping and shipping for a few dollars. So I stopped.
But these emails have got me going again. I figure if I stick to things that are not too complex to make, and that are not too tough to ship, I can do it. And if I sell them strictly on my website (no eBay etc. fees).
I hope some of these people will appreciate having things that perhaps they can afford without skipping meals.
