Our Etsy Store
Just curious if any of you have an Etsy store or have ever shopped there? I bought a few presents from Etsy in 2016, and I was very pleased with my purchases. I think it is a lovely website for anything and everything handmade, although there are certainly other vehicles for both selling and shopping. Some people are able to sell directly from their website/blog and skip the middleman.
We often are asked why we are not selling our quilts, and until this point we haven’t had an excess amount to worry about. But as we are trying to reach that magic number of 10 items to list on Etsy to open our store, we find that it isn’t all that hard to obtain and we should give it a try.
Having tried my hand at eBay for non-handmade items, I am familiar with the basics of the online selling process. We are hoping that the Etsy forum will allow us a wider breadth of customers who know the value of handmade quilts. That remains to be seen and/or proven.
Beyond baby quilts, we would like to offer table runners, wall hangings and other small items. There are really endless ideas, and we would love to hear your ideas or thoughts.
