Is it wrong to sell kandi?

Okay I want ZERO fighting/arguing on this post, I just want everyone's honest opinion please. Keep it PLUR. Also, here is my view on my question: If a singer has the talent of singing and we have the talent to make cuffs and other kandi couldn't we get paid for our talents too?

Apples and oranges... a singer has an acquired talent through practice and if they get paid for their singing talent, they're usually a good singer. But literally anyone with the patterns on this site can make kandi. For example, my friend, with no kandi practice picked a panda mask pattern and she made it pretty damn good. That being said, I'd never sell them, I prefer to trade and giveaway. But if you want to, go ahead! There are a thousand other bad things you could be selling, and well, kandi is kinda kool

@Snakequeen, you sound like a raver at heart. If it makes you happy, the buyers happy, and you make some money for selling a positive feel-good item, then good luck at your farmer's market.

my town has a farmers market coming up, and I would love to sell kandi. The problem is, I'm not a raver. I'm a minor so I have no way to get into local raves, not to mention people that aren't ravers would proabably buy the cuffs. I like the culture and I definitely believe in spreading plur. I'm just not sure I should go through with selling

Oh I almost forgot to add in that you should probably put that you're a real kandi kid that's selling it. That should help you from getting nasty comments from other kandi kids.

I don't think it's really that bad since you're a real kandi kid/ kandi raver that's selling it. In my opinion kandi is meant to be traded and all that's PLUR(R). However, you're a kandi kid so it's more acceptable for you to sell kandi then someone who knows nothing about the rave culture. Also you're spreading PLUR(R) along with it all in the end (which is even better). You're fine, no worries.

I wouldn't call it "bad". Personally, I'd rather trade. I understand if you spend a lot of money on supplies and you want to make a little money to support your cost though. I've sold a few cuffs before to cover the cost of string, beads, stuffies and whatnot. I didn't exactly enjoy selling them. I like either giving them away to friends, or trading.

I don't think it's bad to sell "kandi", I also don't think by you keeping you profit your a bad person or anything like that, have fun selling "kandi", just a head up, pretty sure you know this already though, many people are going to be mean to you because of there personal opinion, but coming from a person that doesn't care on people's comments, don't let it get to you.

I have been contemplating this myself, I need to raise funds for my ambassador trip to Europe, I was also going to raise awareness for my disease, and pay off some of my medical bills by making and selling kandi. Mostly because making kandi is the only thing I am good at. Also its a ridiculously expensive hobby, I say go for it, spread the joy of kandi, as long as your not using the money earned for anything bad, have at it.

"BaileyBayLeef" It is not selfish to keep profit on an item anyone creates & sells. That is how businesses start & how people support themselves with their business or to generate extra spending cash to get them though college or save up for something they really want. What you did with your profit is wonderful, I know many small business owners that do what you did to help others in financial need, but in the mean time it helps to pay the bills.
