Move over, you people who make crafty stuff to sell on Etsy. Look, I can crochet* purses!
Now that it's clear I have a marketable skill**, anyone want to subsidize my lifestyle by paying me big bucks for my as-yet-non-existent wares? Or better yet, who wants to sell them for me, for a cut of the action? Hey, it works for the people who participate (and want everyone else to participate) in multi-level marketing programs.
*Crochet: a two-century old art that any fool can learn. Seriously.
**Half of the handle and the blue whipstitching on the sides were contributed by Julia, age 6. And actually, it's her purse.
