Which items will sell the best?
Generally speaking, the
answer is bird baths (or their close cousins, fountains) and planters...and it doesn't seem to make much difference
which designs you choose. [Animal figurines are also very popular.]
But, there is no one particular item that stands
out above all the rest. Human nature is one thing no one can explain.
People in one area will go wild over a particular concrete item, whereas
in another locality it is something different. A number of our largest
customers began making items such as animals as a hobby.
The sales were so numerous that they ordered more molds from time to time
and eventually the hobby became an enjoyable full-time business employing
a number of people.
As you browse through this
website, you will probably see many items that you
know will sell well in your locality. Talk to your friends, show
them the pictures, feel them out. This is an easy and very good way
to wisely choose your first molds.
Your first molds should be
for items that will sell rapidly. Then, as your sales grow, you can
invest the profits in larger, more expensive molds.
