1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: When Locals Buy Your Items (Shipping Not Required) on: May 21, 2007 07:39:54 AM
If you are trying to offer free shipping to locals, I would say doing what trinabrielle says is your best bet.

However, how are you planning on getting your items to locals? I mean it costs me the same amount to ship my items to people right here in Delaware as it does to ship to California and all across the country. So, why offer a discount to locals? Won't you be losing money?

Do you plan on delivering this yourself? If this is the case, well I would suggest against that. I would be incredibly creeped out if I bought something online at etsy and the person walked up to my house and delivered it themselves. It just isn't professional or appropriate unless you all ready know the person, and it would be ok with them.

I live in a small town, the creepy factor would more so for me and creeps buying my stuff. I am sure that at least 80 % of the people know at least my parents or grandparents.

I have in mind, that if they want to pick it up at my house rather then paying to have it shipped to them. I wasnt saying have free shipping.

If you are short on money I would suggest going to a second hand store, or your own closet and find something you can rip up and make a purse!!!! Even check out the remnants bin at your fabric store.

I think the dust off is a good idea. But I would suggest also to use something to kill bacteria as well. Maybe with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol or something.

I was just wondering that when people go to check out, the etsy shop owner, they are the one that actually sends the paypal and the one that will declaire the amount I guess is that way that you would put it.

I would like to use etsy for online as well as for people around my town that want to buy my stuff, and I was just wondering.

I hope this makes sense lol

Very nice.

The Positive of buying the expensive beads, is that they are exactly uniform, and the cheaper will pretty much always have duds in it.
