What"s been called the democratization of luxury is evidenced by the fact that U.S.consumer spending on luxury items has grown four times faster than total spending. Luxury purchases accounted for about 20 percent of the $2.35 trillion American retail sales market, including many items and services that home-based businesses can make, sell, or offer as personalized and premium services. Although Canadians are more conservative in their expenditures, they also are spending more on things like clothing, personal-care products, and entertainment. By buying basic goods at Costco, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Wal-Mart, shoppers are saving $100 billion a year, finds a Harvard study. At the same time, marketing analysts find spending on luxury goods and services is growing particularly among the 47 million households earning more than $50,000 a year. Surveys find that many people shop for bargains, clip coupons, and wait for sales on household items in order to splurge on luxuries and special treats for themselves or their loved ones. For most luxury products, quality is more important than brand, and thus, what a home-based business products has a uniqueness cache; nevertheless, establishing one's own brand, such as Amy's, Barbara's, or Bill's, can also be the route for some to growing a much larger business.
