Etsy


Any UK followers or readers sell successfully on Etsy, I was thinking of trying collectables and jewellery , just trying to weigh up if it is worth doing.

Appreciate any feedback.

  1. I haven't done so myself, but I know a few who do sell there and they say it isn't difficult at all. What do you have to lose but the time to set up a storefront, and who knows, you may sell heaps!

  2. Go for it you have nothing to lose. Don't know anything about it? Do they take a percentage?

  3. I sell the odd thing every now and again. The only downside is working out the postage and how you are going to pack your item. The upside is seeing it sell. Look at 'completed' listings on the types of items you want to sell. I don't know anything about setting up a shop though. Be aware of tax on profit if you are trying to make it a business.

    2. Most of the money comes from the handmade lingerie and swimwear company, Lucky Sew and Sew and then we get a bit from our embroidery shop too,Thor's Threads. Etsy is real easy to use and the fees are much more reasonable than ebay

  6. I can offer no advice but it is better to have a go than keep wondering.

  7. Just to let you know I wish you luck with Etsy - I'm not a crafter so don't visit this selling site, but just to let you know I've read your blog and wish you luck.

    1. Thankyou Margaret I am thinking about going down the collectables route which is what I know and always been interested in, I might sell craft kits as well but I don't have time to sit and make.

  8. I have wondered if it's worth trying too. I'm just a bit daunted at the thought of setting up a shop front as I am a bit slow with technology. Good luck x
