What is your best investment to your etsy business?

Mine is definitely buying this awsome Brother computerized sewing machine. It makes my work so much easier compared to my old sewing machine.

I have a really nice pair of scissors only for innertubes, and a ver expensive leather punch. They make my life easier!
a Mac!

I have wanted a Mac for a long time. Mac will be my next investment.
photography backdrops and professional lighting! still using my piece of crap sewing machine for now.

cute shop Gloria
I love my Elfa wall shelves system, bought second hand.
My best sellers lately have been things with a very low supply cost: mantra beads and ink drawings. I have an old stash of gorgeous vintage paper that I have been using (which was free from my mother) and while the paper for the ACEO drawings is pricey, they are small so it's not so bad.

They are a huge time investment, however! So that is my answer :)
Thanks, Dottie Dana.
Gloria, I just got a new Janome computerized machine and love it! My 1979 White that I got for H.S. graduation still sews great, but the features on my new machine really helps speed things along.
But it's my Brother serger I purchased last year that really speeds things up. It can sew and finish a seam at least five times as fast as my regular machine.
