How much do you make selling on Etsy?

It's a rather indiscrete question, I know. But I'm about to open a shop & I'm afraid to give it all my energy because I don't know what to expect... I see wonderful shops on Etsy every day, but I don't know if the profit these shop owners get from selling their stuff is as wonderful as it seems. Can you guys help me build an approximation..?

I needed a laugh today. We may have to start buying discount dog food if sales don't pick up.

There are too many variable to give a correct answer. Plus, it's a secret......shhhhhh.

LOL! I can keep secrets!

I saw you on the FP today! Your stuff should be on there daily, imo.
Translate
So far- not much, but hopefully I will start to make more $$$.

you can't expect anything.

most people work really hard on their shop, and some of them make it.

a few people just list and the sales pile in.

many people do nothing, and get very little.

Translate
well I am in the area of your point 1 2 and 3 and still sales are slow for me
Translate
Hehe! I know what you mean.
Translate
I average about $500 a month so I profit about $300
Translate
That is awesome!! Love your shop
Translate
There are some sellers that make a very good living on ETsy an others struggle.

You don't know until you try.
Translate
Here! Here to that!
Translate
oops i let the secret out lol
Translate
Hehe! Never mind! I didn't get it! I love your little shoes.

How much is not much? Because, for example, if I could get like 20$ a week out of this, I'd be happy. More would be better, of course. But with that, I'd be happy.
Translate
Well, a goal of $20/week shouldn't disappoint you, and leaves plenty of room for growth.

It takes time. You can seriously work hard at this for a year and see small results. Just keep in mind that continuing to work at it can make the difference.
