A few years ago I opened an Etsy store. I listed only my jewelry. No bites.
I truly think that you have to have an established customer base already to sell things on Etsy. I let the shop go having learned that Etsy is a dead end for me.
So, somebody please explain to me why I just opened another one.
It means I have to have an inventory that's just for Etsy, I have to keep up with the site, I have to deal with shipping and taxes. Yet, there it is.
I only have one item on there right now. I plan to list a wider variety of items: stuffed animals, jewelry and maybe even some vintage stuff. Maybe that will justify my many trips to Dig N Save.
If I mention my Etsy store on the tags that are on things I sell locally, maybe someone will check it out, right?
