Do You Etsy?

I realize that I have been slacking big time on my 365, but I’ve been spending a lot of my time debating on whether or not to open an Etsy shop, and I finally did it!!

I’ll post the link soon, in the meantime, I’d love advice from those of you who shop & sell on Etsy…

  1. Congratulations! know you will do well on Etsy and I can’t wait to see what you present for sale and how you go about it. I’ve been tinkering with a new Etsy shop of my own; however, I’m weeks away from getting things up and running (we’re moving… agghhh!). So, you ARE the pioneer around here. Best of luck with your new and exciting endeavor; I’ll be watching… and I’m sure I’ll be shopping!

    • Thanks, Claire! It’s so nerve racking!!! I’ve listed a couple of photos over the weekend & I intend to list maybe 5 weekly. I’m gonna add some knitted/crocheted items eventually… I haven’t figured out a way to stand out yet.

    • That was silly of me! I got so excited to finally have went ahead & opened my shop that I didn’t even think to post the link!

      I updated the post earlier today with the link, thanks!

  2. I got several one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts via Etsy last year and will definitely be doing so again. It’s a wonderfully convenient way to shop for special items.

      • These were in-stock items in all cases. Production runs were limited to only a few items, and being handmade, each was truly one-of-a-kind. I don’t think I’d hesitate to order something custom if the seller appeared reputable, but in these cases, seeing photos of the actual items really helped in the decision to purchase. Good luck with your shop, and congrats on taking the step!

    • Thanks, Paul. I’ve never even purchased anything on Etsy but I used to sell stuff on Amazon & Ebay so I figure it’s the same concept… What’s so weird to me is that people list things they don’t necessarily have readily available to ship.
