The jewelry category, for example, is incredibly competitive; if you offer jewelry along with other items, this is to your advantage. The average price of your items fit our goal of promoting accessible, affordable handmade/DIY goods; prices typically range between $1-$75. All items must be creatively and professionally presented.
