I opened my Etsy shop 11 months ago because I'm retiring next year and I wanted to build a business to supplement my income after I retire. This week I made more in my Etsy shop than I do teaching after 32 years. Yes, I LOVE ETSY!
Country Rich Creations would not be AS successful as it is, without Etsy. Some think we did it backwards. We had our own website and local following. But Etsy allows us to reach so many more people. We divert all of our visitor from our web site, to our Etsy shop. Makes it easier on us :-)
6 months on Etsy, almost 300 sale. Very happy with Etsy!!
Couldn't agree with you more, Danielle. It has been and still is an experience, that people from all around the world, can appreciate handmade items..I am impressed with this every time I get an order. So if it wasn't for my husband, Etsy would not have been a part of my business life. I thank them both =)
