Crafting is not as lucrative as it used to be.

Todays Market

Old customs now are dying away,
Is mass production here to stay?
A lovely crafted, handmade gift
Wouldn’t receive much more than a sniff.

There’s a million others on the shelf
And the lonely one I made myself.
Is twice the price of a Sweatshop one.
I can’t compete, I’ve been outdone.

Made with so much love and care,
Would be a credit anywhere.
Buyers no longer circumspect
Pay for rubbish. That’s what they get.


  1. Well said Carol pay peanuts and get rubbish

  2. Hopefully there are enough crafters out there to keep hand and home made things alive. I hope so anyway.
