I'm very new to etsy and want to start selling my bath and beauty products, but I'm confused about the whole Business Insurance/Registration thing. If you are selling on Etsy, do you need business Insurance? Do I need to register myself as a business in the state of New York?

If I were going to sell food, bath & body or children's goods, I'd look into becoming an LLC or incorporating to protect my personal finances.
I'd definitely also get insurance--the B & B teams might have suggestions of what types of coverage you need & who to use, we use Bomba Insurance--they were better than the add-on policies we could get for our personal insurance.
HomespunFabric--thanks for linking to that thread--it has a lot of good info and should answer the NYS registration requirements. :)
