Well I've ended up making some sales. Two official ones, and one sample pair sent to a fashion blogger. I still haven't heard back from the lady who bought the first pair, and it's been almost a month since she got them. Same with the blogger. I made sure they had delivery confirmation, so I know the shoes were delivered. I just don't see why they wouldn't email me back or leave feedback. The second pair got shipped off last Monday and have since been delivered, and I still haven't gotten anything from her either. It makes me nervous because on my shop page it says I have sales, but I still don't have any feedback. I feel like if I had feedback, more people would want some, and wouldn't be hesitant to buy them.

I just started an Etsy shop recently too, and I noticed that on my shop even though my number of sales is low, if you buy something from someone else and leave feedback for them (or if they leave it for you), that will show in your feedback spot with your feedback percentage.  So I think buying a few things from others on Etsy could be a good way to show others that you are a reputable/trustworthy person to get you started (and it's also a good way to support other crafters/artists!).  Your shoes are super-cute- I added you to my circle & favorites on Etsy...good luck with your upcoming sales!

Yes that's right - if you buy a couple of small things from other sellers on Etsy, that will show as positive feedback as well.
It's tough to break through that barrier of having enough feedback that people feel safe to buy from you.

$95 is a totally reasonable price. Don't sell yourself short!

As a buyer, I would want more information. Specifically, what materials are the shoes made of? Do they fit true-to-size?

I would also second the advice to have more listings, even if they're just the same item in different colors.

I'm frightened by the devil, and I'm drawn to those ones who ain't afraid.

hot shoes love them, worth over $100 - but id pay $100 if i wore shoes like that.  Smiley definitely have more fashion shoots with them and then like, an inventory shot of them by themselves unworn. show all colours and like before mentioned - name them with some flair!!! add more info about them and how they are individually crafted with care and precision. talk up your work. be confident and find your target market! even consider making paper flyers for your etsy shoe store and drop them around your nearest city or nightclub!

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.
