I would LOVE to check out the Totally Stitchin’ community’s etsy shops, aka YOUR shop!! What do you make and sell? What got you started? How have you enjoyed it so far? Post in the comments section!! Seriously, I want to check it out! Or if you have a favorite; post it! I haven’t had a shop for long, but, it’s kind of fun to have a presence in online shopping! Etsy.com is such a great idea for creatives to be able to sell online across their country and internationally!
One of my friends, Heather, has an etsy shop, Daughter Designs. She makes all kinds of things, like handbags and quilts. Look at this really creative blanket she made. It’s a compilation from a little girl’s clothes when she was younger! So cute; what a great idea!
It is a lot of work, making samples, taking pictures, editing pictures, creating a product description, making a price for it, deciding on shipping costs, etc. But, I still enjoy it just for something a little extra on the side of my regular business of alterations and teaching sewing lessons (our website created by my friend, Melissa, link to her website). It’s a chance to make something I don’t normally sell to clients here in St. Louis.
Let me know if you have any questions about etsy!! If you have any advice, I’d love to hear it as well!
