If I had a dollar for ever time I've showed a friend or random stranger one of my home/hand made goods then heard the phrase "You should sell this stuff! You could make so much money!", I could take us all out to Taco Bell. Well, I'd eat there anytime, so you should consider it.
When gifting my items, I get a tremendous amount of positive feedback. But it doesn't always sell. And I don't mean never because that would be a lie. I used to have an Etsy shop I tried to stock with goods and good pictures I bothered to take of said items.
Then I had my Mommy melt down and lost all motivation. Although last winter around Christmas time I had an EXTREME amount of success selling my beanies on Facebook. I was literally up until 2:00-5:00 a.m. some nights, finishing up beanies, packaging, and even running to the post office at said time (They have the self ship kiosk).
I would get messages from my friends friends who I didn't even know wanting beanies.
I loved it!
I was successful.
I want it again.
I am considering re-opening my Etsy shop, and filling it with adorable, handmade, and most of all AFFORDABLE goods. I can't stand when I earrings on there for $15! WHAT?! Does it come with a happy ending? And a cake? Why would it cost so much?
Anywho. I am really just thinking aloud here. So if you have any advice or you are super pumped let me know. I am also considering doing giveaways again. Would you like that? Free crap? I like free. It's my favorite.
Have a good weekend. Leave a comment, or never come back again.
