etsy.com??

Does any one sell off this site? Im really thinking about it, but if you really dont make nothing off of it i prob wont. How much do you make if you do? How does it all work?

  • Yeah, it does. I know I have spent LOTS of money there. Lol. And Sweet Libertine Cosmetics started out there and her first batches sold out in hours and she now has her own company that is doing really well. She and her husband both quit their regular jobs to run it. SO yeah, you can definitely do well if you have a good product. Good luck.

  • Well, etsy is a site for handmade goods and some vintage items. It isn't like ebay or auction sites. It's a platform for people who make handcrafted items, though I have seen more and more people selling crap on there that is definitely NOT handmade. You can make good money there, but only if you have a quality item that people want to buy. I love etsy.

  • Cool. I think the best thing would be to just to open a shop on there and give it a try. See what happens. Purses and home decor seem to do well on there. I buy mostly jewelry, soap and art. I really should stay away from etsy but I can't help it. ;)
