Flipping & Selling Furniture for Social Media
Clark’s Fabrication got it start in our garage. We began our makers journey by rescuing furniture from the dump, refinishing it, and selling it online. In just under a year we grew from a 400 sq. ft. garage to a 4,000 sq. ft. workshop. It gave us the opportunity to share our deign ideas with home owners, architects and interior designers alike. We would love to show you what the ropes of the path we took, as well as help set you up for learning skills that will not only allow you to create awesome works, but help you discover the value of your craft while maybe bring in a little extra income along the way!
