Happy Friday All!

Im here tonight asking you all, what YOU personally would like to buy on etsy. I am planning to start my etsy by the end of the month. I can crochet, do a bit of knitting but prefer not to, Im an intermediate to skilled seamstress, and I stencil. I can also do needlepoint, rug hooking, basic jewelry making, scrap booking, and most other crafts. I am curious as to what people like to buy and how much you are willing to spend.

I have quite a few designs for tops, and dresses, as well as bags and wallets I want to make and sell, but Im not sure what people want to buy.

Any help you could give to me on this matter is greatly appreciated. I hope to get feedback on this issue so I can meet the needs of potential customers in the future.

Thank you for your time,


Any Comments Encouraged.

Your best bet is probably to ue the pounce feature on etsy and see what does and has sold. So many things sell and for sucha wide range of prices it's really an impossible question to answer directly.

As for your long list of crafty skills - stick to what you're the best at AND what you enjoy most. Starting out you might want to focus on one craft, and then branch out as you get your name out there. You may find that some of your crafty skills are better suited to a personal hobby considering how saturated the makert is - depending on what you create of course.

Good luck!  Smiley

i think i'll probably stick to sewing and crochet because those are my strong points. i just bought a ton of fabric so once i pick up the serger from my grandmas i'll be ready! i hope to do a few things this march break and at least cut the fabric so i can do projects when i have time...

thanks for your help, hopefully my store will be a success
