I am new to this board and also new to selling on Etsy.

I reached some milestones of getting 4 hearts on my shop and getting my first sale. Currently I have 13 items for sale.

I am still trying to get more traffic to my shop and promote it Smiley

My little shop opened in July and things went really well. Right after Thankgiving things went completely insane however with Christmas orders coming in so fast I could barely keep up. By the time we hit mid-December I was shell-shocked and almost ready to close the shop. First I ran out of corks for my potions bottles and then I ran out of bottles! The peace since I ran out of bottles has been blissful, lol. Now that we're into the new year though I'll start adding new items and hopefully build up a trickle of sales again. I have supply issues with the bottles I use so that is a bit annoying - it's impossible to find the exact bottles I need.

To date I have 341 sales which sounds impressive but really that's just 127 distinct orders. I'm hoping for a good year with steady orders but not so many I get overwhelmed. I've only had one order in January so far.

I recently reopened my shop after almost a year off. I sold a dress that I had listed from last year(the buyer found me) and then nothing more. I am happy to be back, but wishing more things would move. I'm not sure if the clothes are the right 'niche' look for etsy. I love etsy, but am considering going to other sites to sell. I'd love any suggestions you might have! Thanks

By other sites, I mostly mean eb_aye. I have tried Artfire, 1000 markets, zibbet, wikilime and another I can't remember the name of  and had only one sale. I'm just happy to have one!

My shop is severely neglected.   Sad  I spent most of last year focused on in person sales and this year I'm pulling back on the in person sales and putting more work into my ETSY shop. It'll be slow going at first (I have a ton of school commitments in the next few weeks) I hope to have it all nice and spiffy by the end of March.

Hello Ladies!  Gosh, it has been so long.  I am finally getting myself back together and two and a half years later and super excited to be opening up a new etsy shop.  I have missed these threads.  Having access to the internet again helps, Smiley

I have nothing listed yet, but by Monday it will be up and running.  Look forward to some handmade reusable organic maxi pags (Rad Pads) and some knit goods. 



Hope everyone is well, I am really looking forward to rebuilding the bonds I made with many of you.

Much Love,
Shannon Nicole
