They gave out some of the leftovers to friends and family to use as well. From there the word some how got out about their casting materials and requests for kits just started to come in. A business was born.
They didn’t start out as Casting Keepsakes. Going to eBay first they’ve had tons of success with over 10,000 transactions since 2001.
It has continued as they have moved out of their kitchens into a dedicated work space. From there they chose not to have a physical store but they can be found at expos and through their online store.
It’s always interesting to see how accidental businesses take form. This fix to their own problems turned around and placed an opportunity in their laps which has since turned into something that’s been extremely profitable. A dream to anyone looking for a home based business.
