I voted "yes", because the more people making stuff, inspiring and teaching others, and contributing to the community, the better.
(even though I have enough darts at the moment, and won't be buying any)
Multiple people selling the same product leads to competition and marketing.
From the photo, your darts look like anyone else's.
- What's special about your darts?
- Why would I buy your darts instead of Cam's, or that guy over there?
What can you do to get people interested in your
product, and make it stand out from the crowd? Can you use different coloured foam or hot glue, for example?
Maybe people could be willing to pay a bit extra for that something special -- if you're the only guy selling striped green darts with pink tips, for example.
Cam pointed out that your darts are "too cheap" -- make sure that you're charging a fair price so that you don't lose out on the deal. Unless you got your raw materials from the hard rubbish, you probably paid retail cost. You can't make a profit or break even unless you charge for at least your cost of parts, your time, and a profit margin.
I don't have a problem with more people selling stuff; just be careful that your contribution to the community doesn't leave you out of pocket.
