Etsy Shop

After looking into it more, I decided I am going to try out Etsy to sell some of my hand-dyed thread. I have posted a link over on the right-hand side, but here is a direct link to my Etsy store as well. I don't have any items listed yet, I am waiting for my recent batch of thread to dry so I can take pictures and wind it up into cakes...hopefully in the next day or two.

If anyone else has an Etsy shop, and you would like me to put a link on my blog, let me know and I will add you! I would also love to hear any advice or experiences you have had as a buyer and/or a seller.

At this point, I am thinking I will use Etsy to sell my thread for a set price, and if I have remnants, or a cake with a knot in it or something, use eBay to auction them. I'm not sure yet though. Since Etsy is like a huge online craft fair, it is a lot more specialized than eBay with folks understanding the value of handmade items. Once I get the hang of it, and get used to how Etsy works, I may be able to just have sales for my remnants and stuff there and not use eBay at all to sell.

If you haven't checked out Etsy yet, you should! So many talented people over there! I get side-tracked and just drool over all the crafty things people do. It is free to sign up, or you can browse the shops before actually signing up. If you don't already have an account, and you check them out after reading my blog, be sure to mention that when/if you register. I don't know what it does, other than let track know where someone heard about and/or who referred you to the site.

I'm off to check out everyones recent blog updates...I love love love seeing what other people are working on!
