Absolutely. I'm trying to plot out a way to make this profitable (more off-the-racks, price hikes, trying to find cheaper materials, working more efficiently, etc.) but to be honest I'm on a two-year count down. I personally suspect the only way to make a decent living is to have 2+ (underpaid) employees, 2+ machines, minimal customization, and a direct source for Swarovski rhinestones...
