ive been a browser on here for a little while now. this is my first post. its coming from a heated moment. i went to my 3rd holiday shopping bazaar tonight, and was ONCE AGAIN shunned out by the 31 table right next to me. im getting frustrated about the people looking at my table, at the hard work i put into my designs and purses, hearing them tell me how talented i am and how they're not crafty and blah blah....then they spend their money with someone who almost effortlessly ordered a bunch of crap from a catalog to sell at these things. why do i even try?!? please give me some feedback people...check out my etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/christinhenson
. from what you see, where should i be focusing? i put everything on my etsy shop, get lots of views, but no orders. i know it takes some time to build up momentum and to have people trust your shop, but im getting to the point where i might have to get a "real" job to pay my bills. i dont want to. i want this to work!! i want to make my living making my living. thanks in advance for some constructive criticism.
sorry about the rant. its just so irritating to have my hard work get passed over by outsourced products.
