I find the idea interesting, but it would cost a ton. And then you have to spread word around to get people to come by.. I love the idea though. If there was one near where I lived, I would just ask my mom to drop me off there after school!
Oh wow, this post is super old! But I found all the replies helpful. I'm thirteen, and my friend and I want to start a business making cellphone charms, keychains, etc. Etsy charges 20 cents per listing, and they're is so much competition there. A lot of people renew their listing everyday for potential buyers to see their products. 20 cents can really add up.
The idea about the collective site is really great. I have to ask, did anyone start it?
My friend's birthday is coming up, and I'd really like to make her a pair of legwarmers, something she's been wanting for a time now. I've seen a few patterns, but none that I liked especially. Does anyone have any suggestions for a pattern? Thanks in advance!
