I have had my etsy shop for 3 months and have had 22 sales ... not a lot but it is sooooo exciting when you know others like your work.  I even shipped one of my owls to a guy at Polo Ralph Lauren!!  That was very cool.  I'm just having a hard tome getting product made because I am so busy....

I like browsing through Etsy.  It's amazing seeing how creative people are.  My sister and I are working on a few things right now and hope to open a shop on there soon.

I wish I was crafty. :( It'd be a nice way to earn extra money. I love looking at people's designs, though.

I've considered it from time to time, but I think my work is too big to ship. I do distressed furniture LOL!

I don't sell on Etsy, but a friend of mine does. She really likes it. As for me, I do a lot more buying than selling there. I try to stay away from that site, lol.

even if it doesn't work, it's only 20 cents per listing
no matter WHAT. you get 5 pictures, unlimited text
space, and the the listings stay up for quite awhile
until the expire (a few months or so).

i have an etsy and a facebook to promote it. i've
sold several things (not tons) but it's so exciting
when you sell something! especially because its
something you made. plus, you're
in a community surrounded by people who appreciate
handmade, which has good vibes  :thumbsup:

i say try it! i have not pushed myself to list as many
things as i can, which seems to be the trick. the
more you make, the more you sell...and the more
you sell, the more your name is known. this is a
big goal of mine and i WILL reach it eventually!
just read the etsy forums and the blog posts.
they are very motivating! you can do it  :thumbsup:

Thanks for the question n input....

Thinking about putting my scarves n hats on there...

 :thumbsup:
