There are several reasons I like Etsy:
1. It's fun.
2. It hosts a great community which is highly supportive.
3. The vibe is very cool.
4. There are hundreds of thousands of like-minded vintage lovers.
5. I can manage my store at my own pace and intensity with great results.
I opened my Etsy account in October, but it was not until springtime, that I listed my first items. Without a great deal of promoting and with a "look and see" outlook, to my surprise I made a few sales. So I have kicked it up a notch and decided to go full force. I have been getting some great feedback during my learning curve and am learning a great deal about the world of Etsy. It has been very enjoyable and much more relaxing than designing and constantly maintaining a labor intensive webstore. To be honest, Etsy has allowed me breathing room and is providing to be much more cost effective.
Needless to say, although I have been out of the game for a minute, I have been diligently working behind the scenes to keep what I love doing going strong.
I would invite you to visit my new (but old) store CjsRedCloset!
