Does anyone sell their creations?

I have thought a lot about selling things I make. I knit and I do think that I could bring in some kind of profit from making things. There are things I can make rather fast and my creations are things I'm usually pretty proud of.
I want to make my dream a reality, but I don't really know where to start. How do I get the word out that I'm selling stuff? What should I start with making? I am thinking an Etsy page, and something simple that I can make fast - hats, scarves and neckwarmers, baby items - but I'm not really sure.
Does anyone have a business selling their creations? On Etsy or otherwise? If you're comfortable with posting it, about how much do you make?
I am sure I have a lot more related questions that I can't think of now - basically any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

  • I would love to sell my crafts; it would be the ulimate job! But I cannot make them fast enough to keep up with a business, and I have RA so sometimes I can't do anything at all :o(
    But I LOVE to shop on Etsy, you should do that! I have bought everything from lotion to gloves and cross stitch patterns on Etsy.

  • I sell handmade jewelry & other items at a local shop. I don't have to pay postage & they only take 30% of the selling price. I make sure to include a business card with each item that I take there so that people can custom order from me.
