Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Vans by kaylawhoop15 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Vans by kaylawhoop15
I made yet another pair for a friend's birthday! I am seriously considering doing this for money, I just don't actually know how that works haha. I really enjoyed working on these!! :)

Any advice?

Harry Potter belongs to Ms J.K. Rowling

It's awesome. You can try etsy.com to start your own shop.

Those are incredible. Wish I was your friend! :D
If you want to try selling stuff there's etsy, which is a website for selling handmade craft stuff but I'm not sure how to use it.

So I painted some shoes for money last summer. I set up an Etsy.com shop. It worked alright. I just didn't have a steady supply of shoes to paint on and people did not want to send their shoes to me. just food for thought :)

Thank you so much! :) Your thoughts are so appreciated! I have considered an Etsy.com shop actually! My only worry is copyright - I wonder if I would get into some trouble for selling these since the images don't belong to me. The pairs I've made so far were all gifts so money wasn't involved. We have a vans store where I live fortunately so I don't think supply would be an issue - just time :/ these take awhile and I'd hate to get way over my head. Is there a way to possibly cap how many you sell in a month through the website?

I was worried about copyright as well, but a lot of the things sold on Etsy are a form of infringement. For example, there is a lot of Harry Potter or Hunger Games jewelry. These are the same as your shoes. You really won't be making thousands at a time so it isn't that important to the publishing company. What is nice about the shops on Etsy is that you can show as much merchandise as you want. So if you don't want to be making shoes at the time you can just not list them in your store. Also there is a description under the picture so you can give an accurate time frame! I hope you get your store up and running :)

Haha I'm really not sure!! I've been trying to figure that out. The shoes (if you get legit vans) are aleady close to $50 plain white. But then I have to paint them - it takes me about a week to do them so it'a pretty time consuming. I'd say Probably around $100 - $120 possibly, although I know that's kinda pricey.. :/
