Picture doesn't do the colour justice, it looks better in real life.

Re: Bags

I think 20% is reasonable, and worth having a go at selling.

Re: Bags

do you not have any shops near you that could take a few things. Over the years I have managed to sell some things with independent retailers. like a florist or a tea shop that have a few gifts around.

Re: Bags

I put a few things in some local shops, I tried Etsy a few years ago, but got fed up with posting things. and I did sell lots of things - I never found out how to get my things to the top of the search. There is a shop in Ampthill that has just started to sell terrariums https://www.instagram.com/p/...

Re: Bags

I did a terrarium back in the 80s! a little before your time.
