If I had an Etsy Store...

...What would I sell?

I absolutely love the idea of selling on Etsy (a place like ebay, for all handmade stuff) but I don't know what I would sell, and I don't want to copy anyone's ideas. Any of you have Etsy stores? Do you sell one specific thing or random items? How do you get your stuff noticed?

...and so I'm asking. Help!

In march I plan on launching my etsy store believe me I have put a lot of thought and effort and research into this. I have just had to many request for aprons and jewelry that I thought it was about time. So I want to do it right I have been reading up on all the rules and regulations on selling hand made items. I have been developing my own patterns because of copy right laws.

Now I have just been sewing up product and developing a promotion strategy.

I keep meaning to comment on all the fabulousness on the blog. Your homemade Christmas absolutley blew me away. Please,please,please sell your dolls. I want one so bad. And if you don't, I'm going to harrass you to teach me when I'm in CO this summer.

Two of your recipes are in my menu for the week! Yum!

I don't sell on Esty, but I do buy, and I LOVE THAT SITE! Especailly for jewelry. I think anything you put up is going to be unique, that is the beauty of handmade. You have so many neat things you have made, let me know if you open one!

I think that would be so great! Your recipe books, crafts, skirts, dolls, etc. When I have some money, I would be a total investor! My friend here who's husband is a Chaplain Candidate too sells purses on the site. Totally cool
