692  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / advise to sell on own website or etsy? on: January 25, 2008 05:22:08 PM
please help!
I'm going to sell my crafts online (my number one new year's resolution) and I plan to launch before February.
Would you suggest to set up a shop on my personal website or to set up an Etsy shop?

I was thinking of the pros and cons of each...
Etsy has a clean and easy to navigate layout that's ready to go, there are many buyers who surf Etsy for handcrafted things to buy, has a feedback section, and is a great community for crafters.  However, Etsy charges a listing fee and takes a cut of your profits, and there is a lot of competition.
On my own website, I can design the layout however I want and have more control over look/feel/navigation of the site. However, it will be harder to market myself and maintain the site on my own.
Either way, I plan to use PayPal (or would you suggested another method of accepting payment?).

I love to craft beautiful and useful things for people.  I mostly knit and crochet items for charity and would like to set up a way to fund my passion.
I have years of experience in webdesign but not shop design.

Can some of you talented crafty business gurus share some of your experience and advice?

finished with my larger items, now working on the small things, and will definitely send out on saturday (since I work during the week and have no time to make it to the post office before it closes, but I really want to send earlier!)

then a little fimo photoholder(in case you were wondering why it had a slit in its head), of a bunny clutching at the cherry on a cupcake, i also wanted to keep this!

how cute! I reallly like the bunnies that you made, and I can see why you would want to keep them!

wow! you are all so fast!
makes me feel like such a slow crafter~

I'll say I'm halfway done with each of my items (5 or 6 total) and will probably be finished over the weekend!
