The craft industry includes goods that are handmade by artisans or those skilled in a particular trade. According to the Craft & Hobby Association, the craft industry includes businesses engaged in the design, creation, distribution, and sales of products. During the recession, when many other retail sectors declined, the craft and hobby industry held steady at $30 billion in annual revenue.
Startup costs for these types of small businesses are low, and most owners can create items in their own homes, making it an accessible and affordable avenue for those looking to be in the craft business. Craft and hobbies are familiar to many consumers. Each year about 56% of American households craft at least one project, according to the Craft & Hobby Association.
