I mean, we only sell to people who dont take the time to learn to make it. and the money we make goes to buying supplies.

It's NEVER a shame. I do it all the time, mostly since I'm saving up for a drum set.

I agree with what GingerCandE said, but where I'm from, no one knows how or bothers to learn how to make phatties, cuffs or any kind of 3D. It is RARE to find someone that would want to trade something like that, so I sell those things (I stay local!) so the people in my area can have some more cool stuff. And then maybe they can get interested in learning how to make it too, so there will be more epic kandi and more kandi kids in my area

I personally believe that selling simple things like singles, doubles, phatties, cuffs, basic 3Ds, and misc. peyote things is not right. If it is something that is commonly traded as a symbol of friendship than it should not be sold. That being said something bigger like a top hat or a kandi coat where the equivalent trade is something like 200 singles isn't practical to trade. I can see in that situation selling it to regain money for the time put in and the materials. Also things embellished with EL wire, precious metals and stones, etc. (expensive things) is understandable as well. I personally wouldn't sell kandi but I can see the reason behind doing it in those situations.

I personally never would, but that's just my opinion on how I choose treat kandi and the culture around it and I would certainly not look down on anyone for doing so.

It's considered a sin by many older kandi creators, but to the majority of people now-a-days its okay. (I wrote a reply on a similar question) "There are sooo many questions similar to this, and I'm just going to say the same thing every single time: If you want to sell something, Sell it! It's your choice, not anyone elses, and if someone has a problem with it that's their opinion.If anyone says anything nasty to you, just ignore them or it's on the internet, delete and block."

closed minded-ess is y. i dont believe in selling tradeables/the easier stuff to make but idont treat other who sell any diff. i respect all and whatever they wanna do with thier goods. and everyone who doesnt rave wants to call their stuf kandi but dont wanna call stuff ppl sell or stuff at stores kandi which i find funny and hypocritical. we all just need to b repsectful and love one another no matter what ppl decide to do ^.^

I sell kandi and I understand that selling kandi is viewed sacred by others but if someone who does not have the skills wants to but it then why can't I sell it to them so do whatever you feel you need to

I dont think it matters.but like necromanced said, to me, its just another bracelet, or beaded project. In life if I ever want to buy something I buy it, and thats how todays society is, so im sure others think of kandi that way. So in the end it does just come down to opinions. I say just do you. Dont listen to negatives only positives

It's all a matter of opinion, and the shame is only in the eye of the beholder. Some people consider kandi to be something that is too meaningful to sell, while others view it as just another bracelet. But everyone has their reasons to sell kandi, and who am I to judge people for that? So the "shame" varies from person to person, but what you feel is all that matters. Although I don't understand the "people who don't take time to learn how to make it." I mean, that's like going, "I only do homework for the people who don't take time to learn the information."
