    Did you make $10 or take in $10? Have you factored in your material and labor costs?

    Research. Product research. You can't know what the market will bear until you've done your homework.

    Please understand that many of us make our own paracord bracelets and buy paracord in 1000 foot rolls. When you unknot yourself, how about heading over to the introduction section and telling us a bit about yourself.

    There are lots of mass produced paracord bracelets now, I would wonder if there is any margin left for the little guy.

    Try taking the advice that you offered others and let us know how it works.

    BTW I deleted the other thread you started in the section for people that have problems registering where you were also asking about selling paracord bracelets. You may want to drop by the introduction section and tell us a bit about yourself - including your age.

    Get this, ....At the farmers Market yesterday.....Opening day.
    The Amish are selling paracord bracelets, 3 for $10 bucks.....all sorts of colors mixed together.
    I ask if they made them, lady says ..."no, bought them".

    The market is flooded with regular ones cobra weave with plastic buckles.

    Any one wanting in the market these days better have a "new and improved model"....or a different product.
    Rifle slings, dog collars, dog leashes, water bottle holders....you need a new nitch.

    Just be aware that China is the one flooding the market. I must get a half dozen emails a week from Chinese manufacturers wanting to wholesale to me. And that's even adding them to my blocked spam mail list!
