About the Author:


Kari Chapin has spent the past 15 years in the professional world incorporating marketing, publicity, buyer, freelance writer, community relations and stylist as various job titles. As someone who spends a great deal of time with artisans and craftspeople, it wasn’t surprising that one day, a compact fluorescent light bulb went off above her head, and she sat down and wrote The Handmade Marketplace. She likes tag sales, thrift stores, coffee, yarn, glitter, and paper. She lives in New England with her patient husband, two miniature dappled dachshunds, and one cranky orange cat. Meet Kari at her website,


My Thoughts:

To be honest I haven’t had a chance to finish this whole book yet, because I was a bit late receiving it. However, the chapters I have skimmed are so full of information. I have learned quite a bit already… just on the basic’s. I love to learn new things, so this was a great choice for me to read. The Chapters that have stuck out the most to me are 4 Marketing Basics, 6 Blogging, 12 Get creative. I’m eager to finish. This book is such a wealth of information that it would help a beginner or someone who has been in this for awhile to get a fresh look.
