The only normal people you know are the ones you don’t know very well
My main advice is something which people get so wrong - so please remember - the minute you start to SELL items, no matter if you are a 'hobby crafter' or more regular crafter, you become a business, so you must have Public Liability Insurance - if only to cover your back, should anything go wrong. My annual insurance is around £50 per year, so a reasonable monthly outlay - but I wouldn't dream about not having it - and most craft fairs and events expect you to have it anyway these days - so please, get yourself insured.
but happy to offer any advice I can
Given here we are talking about making the product then Product Liability insurance is arguably more important than Public Liability but thankfully when you are talking about the small-medium sized enterprise type offerings then Product is embedded in 99% of Public Liability policies.
