Something I don't read others doing enough but makes a world of difference is to use a gray scale card (like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004QXU8VI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) for each lighting condition. Just snap a picture of your product with this small card beside it and then take the same photo without this small card. In your favorite photo editing program adjust the whites, blacks and mid levels using the photo with the card and then apply the level settings to the photo without the card. It's so easy to do and takes the guess work out of having the right colors, brightness and contrast. I've gotten a number of 5 star reviews with the customer noting how the colors of my products match exactly to my product photos.
Nobody has time to read notes on packages, and the machines that do a lot of the work don't read stuff other than barcodes, so just stop using fragile stickers. It means nothing and is just a waste of time and money for the most part.
And it's generally not actual workers where the stuff gets damaged. It's usually when something gets jammed in a machine and 20 other boxes pile up behind it, and now you 400lbs of weight crushing your box. Or it's unlucky and was the first box loaded on the bottom of container and has everything else piled on top, etc.
In your wine glass example I would probably get rid of most of the bubble wrap and all of the air pillows and go with some other void fill like custom foam inserts or expandable foam packets. The air pilows might be going flat by the time they get here from the extended air time messing them up.
Maybe double box, where the first box has the wine glass wrapped in small bubble wrap and peanuts, then put that inside a larger double wall box with void fill that won't disappear.
These foam packets can work very well for certain products: https://www.amazon.com/Instapak-Quick-IQHRT00-60-Bag-Pack/dp/B000IJDZ7S
I checked out your store at https://www.etsy.com/shop/Phillipsartwork and, well, no, it's not going to sell well at all. Your titles and tags aren't useful in search, you have no shop policies, it's like you're not even trying. There are 700k photography listings on Etsy and you can't just expect to throw some photographs on there and have sales appear from nowhere. You don't even mention the resolution of the digital downloads, which is a major flaw that, by itself, will prevent any sales. I suggest doing some research and not making any prints until you've got some listings that might actually be seen by someone, let alone listings that are going to be purchased.
Just finished my account a few days ago, so I guess it is all new. Thanks
Here it is
P.S. I make ceramics. Mostly pottery right now.
Started adding some jewelry a friend and I made
I recently got hold of some beautiful reclaimed oak from a barn that was torn down. I've used them to make these Upcycled Bottle Openers to go along with my other products. The people that have bought them seem to really like them for their rustic appeal.
Hello, r/etsy! I've just started dedicating a solid amount of time to my Etsy. I'm in the early stages of the shop, but I'm hoping to develop it rather quickly.
Right now, my shop contains mainly hand-painted polymer clay earrings. I also have some options for custom artwork and prints.
I hope you enjoy! I look forward to getting to know more sellers through this community!
How large are your prints? If the shortest side is not wider than 12-13", I suggest going with an wide format desktop inkjet printer. I've found really great quality & success from my Canon ip7820 - I use it right now for greeting card illustrations (as in 2000-3000 cards per holiday season) but have had requests to do larger prints that were about 12" wide. The printer goes up to 13" x 19" (A3) and the cost of replacing the inks are super cheap because Amazon has a lot of sellers who sell non OEM replacement cartridges that are literally 1/4 of the cost of Canon brand inks, and I found the quality of the inks to be just as good.
+1 for kitchen scale. I had bought something to measure ingredients and instead use it to weigh all of our packages. A simple button changes it from ounces to pounds to grams.
The only downside is that larger packages can barely fit on the scale (or they fall off), but if OP is just doing small boxes it should work.
I got this one from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003E7AZQA/
Alibaba steals photos all the time - I've got a ring holder that's FAR from a bestseller here
They changed the background for this photo
Not sure why they bothered with that particular item, but for items that get super-popular on the front page (or trending, or however it works now), they won't even take the time to photoshop. By the time anyone notices (if they ever do), they've made some sales and can just steal some new photos.
I hope someone on Etsy starts selling assembled Ikea furniture as "handmade." Just to prove a point.
I've been making jewelry for quite a while and I recently decided to open an Etsy store. I'm pretty new to it but I'm excited about it. I've made a couple sales, and I'm looking to increase my exposure. Seriously, any feedback is GREATLY appreciated :-)
We are re-branding our company to begin marketing to higher end customers. We slightly overproduced soap at the holidays so now I'm sitting on about 100 extra bars, so it's been marked down on our page to $5.48 a bar.
We sell similar items on our store. If the stuff inside the dome isn’t secured down with glue there’s basically no way to ship it. Redo it, use glue to make sure nothing inside moves around. The glue we use is great, dries clear and isn’t super brittle like super glue is. Lemme see if I can find it on amazon...
There it is. It really is perfect for this type of application. It’s way stronger than you’d think. I use it all the time for gluing bones and preserved moss, etc.
Anyway, once everything inside the dome is secure (shake it a bit to make sure), it’s just a matter of wrapping the dome in bubble wrap and using a bigger box so there’s room for extra protective packing.
Anyway, from a fellow oddities/curiosities dealer, good luck! Love this piece btw. What’s your IG/Etsy store called? We’re @MVMarketplace 🖤
I checked out your shop, favorited it, and favorited some items :) Some advice for you though:
First, more items draw more people to the shop.
Second, your titles need work. Titles and tags are how people find your items. Start with what the item is as this is what the search engines pick up first. You want to think about what people would search for.
For example, "Vintage Dress Black 1970s Long Sleeve Little Black Dress 70s Size Small S" for this pretty dress: https://www.etsy.com/listing/174722487/1970s-ilgwu-black-dress
I wouldn't search for a ILGWU dress, I'd search for a black long sleeve dress.
Another re-write example: 1980s Lady Carol of New York Floral Dress --> "Floral Dress 1980s Vintage Hot Pink Black Lace White Collar Flower Print 80s Lady Carol of New York Size Medium M" Again, as a shopper, I probably wouldn't search for that brand, but I'd search hot pink floral 80s dress.
and you don't need to put any damage in the title, put that in the description.
Third, your photos are nice and clear, but I think you could fix up your centering a bit. Show the special parts of the item, or show the whole thing. If I have a narrow image of a dress, I usually add white borders in Photoshop so it'll fit that thumbnail.
Hope that helps :D
Hey everyone, we make custom rubber stamps. Have a look! We do custom logo stamps and business card stamps for other etsy shops and small businesses (among other things!) If you're in the market for an economical way to customize and your packaging, invoices, business cards, etc, get in touch! https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Stamplifier
I hope everyone at /r/etsy had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
My wife has been working hard at lettering as she would like to contribute to our Etsy shop: www.locustandplum.etsy.com.
She made a couple industrial-esqe Christmas signs and accidentally sold two before she even had time to list them on the site.
Here is the one that is currently available and ready to ship within a couple days: Noel Christmas Sign
Thank you for viewing and check us out on Instagram
They look like this one from alibaba. I see a bunch of their other cases on alibaba and aliexpress as well.
yep, this. you're just reselling stuff people can buy for much cheaper on amazon. it's not special - you're basically going to have to work really hard driving people to your site and SELLING it. your bulk alibaba purchase isn't going to sell itself like you thought! :)
Hi! We sell fun, high quality vintage clothing from the 30s through the 70s. Check us out!
And here's one of my personal favorites...just in time for spring!
We have a couple of new soaps ~~coming~~ posted this week - including our first beer soap! ~~Until they go up~~ You should also check out our Orange Lemongrass hand soap. It's made with goat milk to be extra moisturizing, and uses poppy seeds as a natural exfoliant .

Edit: Beer Soap now up on Etsy!
I've made to do lists for myself by using the IFTTT log etsy sales into GoogleDrive recipe: https://ifttt.com/recipes/121492-log-etsy-sales-in-google-drive
It requires that your new order emails be sent to a gmail or google hosted email address.
My little slice of the interwebs is Robots Are Awesome
I gladly take on custom requests, in between those, I create seasonal sculptures like Robot Cupids and Devils.
Thanks and keep being awesome! :)
However much you are posting now, it's not enough.
https://later.com/blog/instagram-aesthetic-trends/ - Some tips for you on aesthetics.
Just remember, good content is good content, regardless of anything else.
I'd focus more on taking great shots of your product before worrying about an aesthetic overhaul. If you take good shots, your aesthetic will develop naturally
For a specific product like this, you can also look for reviews on blogs, youtube, or Amazon. For Stretch Magic, Amazon reviews say it doesn't knot well. Consistently seeing something like that in several reviews can help. (A tip: look at the mid-spectrum of reviews, 2-3 stars.) If there's a pro you trust who blogs or has a youtube channel, see if they have recommendations or tutorials - for instance, Beadaholique shows Stretch Magic in this video.
I don't feel the need to test everything I make, but I have made enough pieces with the same materials (like Wildfire beading thread, Toho seed beads, stuff I use regularly) that I have a feel for what I like and what I don't. For instance, I HATE nylon beading threads like Nymo and Silamide because they stretch out over time and tend to be too slippery to knot well. I'm still searching for good beading needles. And I did make test pieces before I opened my shop, and I do wear my own stuff (though some of it is too ridiculous and over-the-top for day wear sadly).
Frankly speaking, anything elastic is going to die one day regardless of what you do. So, maybe try out a few different elastic cords if you can. For a stretch bracelet, there are different price points ranging from inexpensive (maybe for kids, less invested so less annoying when it breaks) through gemstone quality (more expensive, higher investment, needs to last). So, keep your price point and target market in mind as well.
Matching Original series Star Trek aprons are back in my shop.
Two different designs for women or men:
Star Trek Apron with Ruffles
Star Trek Apron / Chef Style
I'm coyoteclawschainmail on Instagram. Here
I'm still figuring this beast out. Right now I'm trying to do mostly product promos, with some slice of life. Let's see how it works.
Do NOT buy these. They are NOT real. You may get a ring, but it is not gold/silver/diamond/sapphire/etc.
These are the same rings you can find on Aliexpress for $5 with free shipping.
We are Maejean Vintage and we specialize in genuine vintage & antique jewelry. We have been busy adding some great new pieces for Valentine's day! <3
I'm brand new to etsy and just opened my shop yesterday. I made this metal stool and think it is a very different and modern look to the traditional stool. Here's it is!
Not sure what you're looking to do with editing but Pixlr has a desktop and an online tool as well. I've heard great things about GIMP as well, though I use Photoshop personally.
Another very easy way which costs a whopping $0 is to take your Etsy URL and run it through Bitly to create a custom short URL for your instagram page. Pop that into your bio and then when people click your link the traffic is logged with some nice analytics.
OP you end up with something like this:
Looks like it's on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Homissue-Industrial-Bookcase-Bookshelf-Storage/dp/B07YGMNJJ3/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Homissue&qid=1622662244&sr=8-1&th=1
Editing to say I'm not sure what desk you bought but a reverse image search of one of the Etsy shops items came up on Amazon. Doesn't look like the same seller.
As a buyer, I would except the same thing as on Amazon, where marking as a gift means they omit the price from the packing slip.
As a seller of non-bulky items, I offer free kraft paper gift wrapping on all of my items & it delights gift-givers (and a giant-ass roll of kraft paper is only $20 )
I do not sell pins, however, my husband collects really expensive ones. ALL of his pins have come in bubble mailers. The pins themselves are usually pined to card stock or cardboard and always wrapped in more bubble wrap.
As for being eco friendly, I was just looking at options for myself and came across these. They are a little on the expensive side, but it was a quick look and you will pay more for eco friendly materials.
The photos really aren't as bad as you may think from the comments -- but the DIY light tent might be helpful. Also -- morning or dusk light would be beautiful to light these -- just find the biggest window in your house that faces east or west (to catch morning or evening light) and go to town.
Also -- I like your banner -- but it could use a bit of a boost (I used this guy to do mine -- his name is Scott and he's just starting out with freelancing and is REALLY cheap, but very talented!)
Otherwise -- your actual products are GORGEOUS. I just favorited you.
https://www.linkedin.com/in/brenna-lynch-aa2a4433 Says she works for Etsy
(make sure you are not logged into Linkedin or she will know you looked)
Not sure if it helps, could also be a fake Linkedin profile.
> The next one is from Nick Jones, and I'll give this one to Josh. "Can you talk more about the Star Seller program? Is this an icon on the seller profiles? And can you give us any data that you can share about how this might help sellers to sell more?"
Answer (Joshua Silverman):
>Yeah, great question. Thank you for that. Yeah, the Star Seller program is really designed -- Yes, it will be an icon on people's shops. That will show up in a few months. We might do featured marketing around our Star Sellers. It might influence your prominence in search. We're going to experiment with a lot of things.
>But at minimum, it will be a badge on your shop to highlight to buyers that you're one of the very best sellers. I think one of the most important things it does though, is it provides agency to sellers to tell them very transparently, "Here are the customer service metrics that buyers care about the most, and here is what good looks like." And that sets a bar, an aspiration for our sellers of where they want to go and where we want them to go.
> Where will the Star Seller Badge appear, once it launches to buyers?
> We’ll be experimenting with a few placements for the Star Seller badge, including testing into showing the badge in search results, on a seller’s listing page, shop home, and in buyer marketing (like email) as a few examples.
Lol, sorry! I figured people would want some low-risk Photoshop before actually sending me stuff. Here's my shop. I'm based in metro Detroit for everyone that asked.
hey dragonandfox! check out these nice examples of shops who sell candles. might give you some ideas for photos.
https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/pollenArts - nice use of colour on a theme. also use of similar-but-different backdrops with nice depth of field. also notice the cropping and the variety of height in the photos.
https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TattertwistsSpa - themed colour again--- also check out the use of props, to suggest the scent of the candles! awesome, eh?
hope this provides some inspiration :)
I mainly post in-progress photos of my paintings, and how they turn out printed onto fabric (which I then sew up into pillows and such for my shop).
I also have a facebook page, which doesn't get updated as often, but includes links going out to my blog when I have longer posts.
Facebook: Caitlin Clarkson Illustration
I'm looking forward to connecting with y'all!
Sorry to say, but by the letter of the law they have a legitimate claim against you. They are panicking right now and probably being very cautious about copyrights.
They already got rid of it.
wtushop: Opened on Dec 3, 2014
So many of these shops exist. Wouldn't doubt that they're automated bots. It's real easy to trick ETSY though.
EDIT: I also doubt they have a team to deal w/ this. Maybe just a reverse image search of some products, if that. I recall finding a few shops within the span of 30minutes all w/ products from ali. Amazon currently has this going on through FBA and hopefully it doesn't happen w/ their handmade shops section. Curious to what barriers they put in place. They should really require a timelapse video of a product being created in order to be qualified as "handmade". Simply showing fabrics, wood, or other components of a shop, can easily be faked to make it seem like you're actually a creator of shit.
I just listed some new earrings. I have made wood earrings in the past, but decided to try my hand at coating them in resin. Please stop by and check them out. :)
Your items are very nice. I think you'll do well if you raise your prices to let people know that your items are valuable. I saw a headband that you said took 6 hours to make and you are selling it for $15 which pays you less than $2 per hour for your work. Check Etsy for guidance on pricing. https://www.etsy.com/blog/en/?s=pricing&submit=Search
Good luck with your shop. Love your stuff. I'm considering buying something before you raise your prices! :-)
I make maille jewelry. There's inlays and key chains too. Also looking into making stuff for table top gaming but that's on the back burner right now.
A fabulous scarf for the comic lovers out there:
I make scarves and crocheted coffee cup cozies. Custom orders are welcome!
Pleaassssseeee stay away from this person. Try using IFTTT to copy posts from facebook and instagram over to twitter. Likely this person is getting a lot of bot traffic. You want real people. Find your competitors and follow their Real followers. Like their tweets, tweet at them.
Im starting to make prints of my artwork. This is my favourite drawing I have done so far, and I dont want to part with it, so prints are a great way of making it available for purchase :)
I have been making lots of funny little necklaces latelyLike this cute one
Also, check out something called Taco Shop Gangsta while you're there. Too funny!
I just opened another store for my ever increasing vintage pattern collection. Aptly named The Vintage Pattern Company. Not sure if this link will work but here goes…
I just opened my store after months of indecision. I make leather accessories, primarily for fine tobacco use and geek stuff. Please take a look, and let me know if you have any suggestions for products you would like to see.
I have a few posters for sale and soon I'll be adding some original modern-pixel watercolour art.
Thanks for supporting the community! <3
Thanks for all this, wonderful write-up and very informative.
I've been struggling in making my Pinterest work. I pinned far too many things (never calling to action my shop like you suggest) and let it sit. I've noticed it's sorta taken a life of its own and I get a few repins here and there, but no redirects to my site. All of the engagement is on pins that aren't my own.
I almost want to delete everything and start fresh, but I'm wondering if there's a way to salvage everything I have with the infrastructure that's there.
There are a few coupon codes on there already. I used one of the 30% off new products codes. Keep this link and if you decide to sign up, you can get a good chunk off of the yearly price. I got mine down to $69, which worked out to about $6 a month for the service. It downloads from etsy and major credit cards companies and banks too like Quicken/Mint, to help keep track of any business related expenses on those accounts too.
First thing that pops into my head is "Vintage Crush", but I have no idea why. Do some keyword research and find out what people search for when they want vintage clothing. That'll help narrow your choices, as being an online shop, your SEO is going to be important. Moz will be your friend in learning about SEO.
That said, here's a list of Etsy Vintage Shop names.
This is the first year I used Wave. I really like it! I just enter in all my receipts, categorize what their for (supplies, office, show fees, etsy fees, etc), and generates reports and pie charts for you. Same with sales.
Ya absolutely. I usually work with cotton or rayon, but I make custom skirts out of almost anything. Check out the custom Lyndsay details. I can also modify the style if you'd like something similar.
Convo me and we can talk details :)
Not sure if it's everything you need, but I use Slice to track the shipments I send out. It's free. Just enable receiving a copy of the shipping email that is sent to customers and then give Slice access to your email. It will scrape all of the info automatically from those emails and populate your slice account. The iOS and Android apps are both great, and you can enable push notifications for spent and delivery. Really helps for keeping track of what I sent out!
You might look on creative market for mockups.
with that I would keep in mind of the actual size of your prints that way you're not showing a 24x36 poster and actually selling a 11x17. :)
I just got accepted into Etsy Wholesale today, I'm still trying to figure the whole thing out, but here's what I can tell you so far: I know that a store or company will send you an inquiry/order and you can accept or reject. The interface is very similar to regular Etsy. Intact, most of it is all together in the same place, you can view regular orders and wholesale orders next to each other. For pricing, you have to take at least 50% off the top. You can set minimum order purchases. I set my minimum order to $150, which will give you 50 of my products. You get to pick which items are seen in Etsy Wholesale, not everything has to be wholesale, and some items can be exclusively wholesale.
As for framing you can buy photos like this or this, and photoshop your own prints into them, or you can stage your own.
Yeah the fee is non-refundable. You just have to hope you can make your money back. Good luck!! Your work is great! I think you'll do well. Hope this helped a little, wish i could tell you more.
From a shoppers perspective, I’m not crazy about your photos. Maybe get a photo of an actual smart phone and overlay your art into the phone’s screen. Like a mock-up It’s better to recognize what someone is selling right away by seeing the photograph. But I couldn’t understand what the art was for until I read your title.
A better mock photo could maybe help attract buyers into envisioning what’s for sale better and thinking ooo I want that.
I'm not a fan of godaddy, their UI is horribly cluttered and a mess but they do offer most services you might need. I've used directnic.com for years and they've been reliable. Namecheap.com is decent as well. I pay google their $6/user/mo to have a gmail like interface.
I have an instagram, facebook, twitter, pinterest & tumbler, but twitter and facebook are the only ones that get updated with any regularity.
I recommend an app called Buffer: https://buffer.com which lets you post on multiple accounts across multiple platforms. Super-useful. I'd probably keep paying for it even if I didn't have a shop anymore. It's $10 a month.
This girl doesn't have an etsy store yet, but her jewellery is friggin mind blowing. Rouble depreciated 30% against the dollar so take advantage of that! I can put you in touch.
I buy bulk assorted-size kraft paper jewelry boxes from Amazon Warehouse Deals to package the vintage jewelry I sell. I then wrap the box in kraft paper & put a "thank you" sticker on it.
These look similar-ish to what you're looking for & are $20 per 100.
If you search "jewelry display" on Amazon, a lot of cheap but professional-looking options come up that you could probably use for your charms. I only sell online, but I bought the stands that I use to photograph my stuff on Amazon.
I have 2 6ft folding tables from Walmart and 1 4ft folding table from Amazon. I love the amazon one because it has different leg lengths, so if I want a taller bar style table, I can do that, or shorter, etc. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003YJPC2A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
If you're looking at tents, I recommend https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BSLQSVO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It has the side walls, sand bags, a carrying case and is super sturdy yet easily assembled. I get compliments on how nice it looks at every show I do.
Looks like they just glued elastic banding to the other side of the felt circle. Quick Amazon search yielded this
This is the tablecloth I use: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HVEG28G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_4UOJCbCR63JMN
It's fitted, and skirted to the floor, so it gives the table a very neat, clean, and professional look. There are tons of colors. I have a couple because some shows require white.
Something to keep in mind is that you want to add height to your table, so that your products can be seen from farther away. I had my husband build me a set of solid risers (they essentially look like three steps), that I put my displays on.
To-do lists are my savior! I use the app swipes and it is a lifesaver for me. They have an app for both my computer and my phone and I feel so productive crossing things off my list.
There's their final comment on it.
Here's an informative post from us discussing it https://www.reddit.com/r/Etsy/comments/2zmnac/betsi_will_no_longer_be_available_survey_please/
Do keyword research and find relevant and most searched keyword according to your products. Add appropriate keyword in title and description. Check this article for detailed explanation.
My shop is Georgia Jewlery and I realized a week ago that jewelry is mispelled and Georgia Jewelry seems to be taken woops.
Anyway, I do a lot, mostly maille jewelry and inlays and the like. Some perler stuff, some table top stuff.
I don't have a twitter or a facebook for my shop I should do that later today, so this is a reminder for myself too to do that.
Hey guys! I've opened a shop which sells primarily bracelets...but I have also started making tile coasters. My latest ones are Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer inspired! :D
Check out ManhattanStall:
I sell prints of my artwork. I'm trying to get off the ground and transition to making a living off my personal work instead of the commercial stuff I do.
You can find my shop here!
Here's an example of the prints.
We are Ugly Farm and we currently make cold process soaps. We are about to release air fresheners and liquid soap versions of our hard bars along with some of our other bath and beauty products.
Thanks for all the support!
https://www.etsy.com/shop/BaysilCreation - I make custom bleach shirts, I can turn almost any design into a bleach shirt! They are comfortable and do not fade. I use Target brand shirts, very soft. :)
Visit my shop and discover my matchbox critters! My most popular is a sloth in a matchbox. I do currently have some fun things for Easter and more to come.
Have you ever seen a Spider-Man apron for women?
Well there are currently two in my shop: Amazing Spider Man Apron
We are Ugly Farm and we are new to the Etsy world. We are currently selling handmade cold process soaps with plans on expanding over the spring and summer.
Check us out: https://www.etsy.com/shop/uglyfarm
My shop is pretty new, so I'm hoping y'all like it :)
I have some neat vintage medical pamphlets/booklets!
For those interested in the more macabre, I have some old post mortem photographs, too.
Re-opened my shop and I'm working as hard as I can to keep it active! Mainly selling canvas paintings I've done until I find better ways to broaden my stock.
☆☆☆I now also have coffee cup sleeves. Will be adding more patters tomorrow. ☆☆☆
Slim credit card wallets, tampon holders and shopping bags in many different patterns, adding more products every couple of days. Opened a month ago and got my first international sale last Friday. Shipping worldwide from Sweden with reasonable shipping cost at 3 dollar for most of the products.
I finally got around to 'officially' releasing my Six-Eyed Cat shirts I'd been working on over this past summer.
They come in seafoam green on purple
~ and ~
shiny metallic gold on black.
And a link to my shop, proper: etsy.com/shop/TheMothFlock
And facebook, if you feel like saying hello: facebook.com/FlockOfMothsArt
So you have ~~45~~ 180 days if you paid through Paypal to open a dispute, and 60 days if you paid through Etsy direct checkout. I'd wait another week and see if anything shows up.
Sometimes tracking just doesn't work. I have a couple international items I dropped off at the post office that have never been scanned -- hoping that it's still moving along though.
I'm most active on Instagram: https://instagram.com/chockrosa.se/
I'm also on Twitter: https://twitter.com/chockrosa
I do have a fb where I'm not that active on: www.fb.com/chockrosashop
I sew and sell fabric card wallets/business card cases, coffee cozies, shopping bags to name a few things.
Hope to connect to you!! :)
Graeme (of Betsi) is responding to questions in this Google group. There does seem to be a TOS dispute going on, and Tools4Etsy is, in fact, caught up in it as well. Graeme says negotiations are still ongoing. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/blugrin-support-group/sfZkRqqUp6c
Hello. I don't know if you would ever go with them but Alibaba seems to have a good selection of long pile faux fur along with any other style of faux fur you're looking for. Here is the link:
Hello everybody! Im new to this community and I would like to introduce my Etsy shop BicibyBar
I love making bicycle bags in leather and wood, using beautiful pieces of leather with different textures! I want them to look great on the bike but that you can use it also off the bike!
Please feel free to give me your thoughts about the shop :) thanks!
I've been selling my artwork on etsy for about a year now, but now I'm trying to venture into vintage goods. I started a new shop this past week and have been filling it with cool stuff that doesn't fit me anymore; eventually I will hunt for special things at the thrift store and list those as well.
I would love some advice on how to make my shop more successful. How could I improve my photos? descriptions? are my tags going to help people find my items?
thanks so much you guys!
i'm buying from lilly d's on etsy (https://www.etsy.com/people/LilianDaganham). i get the bezels and chains for about $1/set. i buy in bulk (without the "glass" since i pour my own resin). I thought it was a pretty good deal BUUUUUT if there's a place i can get the supplies for less, that would be awesome.
as far as pouring resin, it's been a learning process and i'm still learning. these pieces have bubbles, but i try to poke them with a needle as the resin sets. i think the trick is to wait a couple of minutes after you have mixed the resin/hardening agent and allow the bubbles to work their way out before pouring. also, you can slowly layer the resin to ensure a perfectly clear coat, but that's really time consuming, considering it takes upwards of 7 hours to harden. i like the bubbles in some of my pieces. it adds even more of a 3 dimensional quality to the resin and the artwork without looking sloppy, which i really love.
i've always had a hard time putting a price on my work. i was a freelance photographer for a long time. (mostly to make extra money, being a single mom with loads of bills) i always thought people were as poor as me so i based my pricing on what i would want to spend on things (portraits, weddings, etc). not to toot my own horn, but i'm a talented photographer, and certainly deserved to make more than what i was quoting. that being said... same thought process with these pieces. i'm more afraid of people not being able to afford these or finding them too expensive, so i'm kind of stuck with figuring out what my artwork is truly worth vs what people are willing to pay.

Past examples have included a mother who wanted custom necklaces for her daughter as a congratulations for getting honor role, but was working two jobs and didn't have much in the way of extra spending money. And a high school girl who was bullied and made fun of often for being weird. She was hoping for a custom necklace to wear to her prom.
Awesome find! A pair of refurbished vintage majestic crowned lions wall hangings. Lions are made of cast aluminum and have a unique Gothic, steam punk, man cave aura. They are just waiting for the perfect wall to proudly display them!
Each lion is 32"H x 17"W x 2 1/2" deep.

I make pet portraiture hand painted ceramics (and other designs). I did this one for a Shiba Inu owner. He loved playing in the snow, that's a blob of snow on the top of his nose.
Good evening r/etsy! I am in the business of creating video game related felt pillows! I am hoping to get my shop to the next level so any feedback would be appreciated! Let me know what you think!
Design is my passion, and jewelry making has been my favorite hobby since I was about 8 years old. I recently opened my Etsy shop, and am still waiting for my first sale. I'm selling mostly earrings currently. Any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated!
I just started up a shop selling a ton of different types of pinback buttons and magnets. Lots of one-of-a-kind things sourced from found books and magazines and as well as old band pins. I add new stuff every few days and take requests/custom orders, too!
With spring coming up we put together a new batch of our all natural dog soap. It's made with flea and tick repellant essential oils so it's great for this time of the year!

Just added some Flappybird cross stitch items to my store, including this spiffy little magnet :)
Also, a request for mods: can we add custom flair where we can have our etsy shop URL?
I just found this subreddit and promotion thread! :) I also just started using Etsy for my new coffee pour over stands I designed. Thanks for taking a look.
Now to go look around here a bit at what others have going on!
