Thank you for sharing your experience. I think one thing shoppers tend to not realize is that HOMEMADE or HANDMADE isn't going to look like a mass produced item. My works are individually handmade by me and only me. I try to not use the same design in my works and that tends to bother some people. I personally like the idea that when I purchase an item that no one else can have one just like it.
