I agree paradoxbox and CraftyChef! I have made a ton more sales at craft shows than I have on etsy. Granted, my shop hasn't been up for long but I've also only been to a couple craft shows. I think with bags especially people like to touch, see how it feels on their shoulder, look at all the pockets, etc.

Sometimes the internet is a pain for custom orders too because it's hard to list all the fabrics I have, whereas if I sell locally the customer can see the fabrics and hold them next to each other to compare colors, etc.

I still like doing both though because it helps to reach a wider audience. Etsy's fees are lower than eBay's, so it's pretty cost effective if you know what to compensate for in your price. Who knows, maybe people in Arizona will all love my bags and start a statewide fashion trend!  Smiley

If you like handmade bags and purses, check out my etsy!
