Not Quite Sure What to Do....?

So, I've been thinking a lot lately about closing out my Etsy Shop. I haven't sold anything in awhile and I don't do enough of ONE thing to really make my shop appealing. There are so many other people on Etsy selling great stuff, I just don't know that I feel like my items are up to par. I do spend a lot of time on the things I make and I enjoy making them... but I'm just not sure where I am going with them. If I don't try to sell them though, then there is no point in creating things because I won't get a return on the materials I buy. Of course, I can always make things to give away as gifts. *sigh* I'm just not sure. I have more items that I could post... but I hesitate. Is it really worth it? It is so thrilling to have a sale! But so disappointing to go on each day without selling anything. Perhaps I need to focus on just one thing? But I get bored doing just one thing. Perhaps I need to focus on taking better pictures for the listings? So many things to think about...
Does anyone else have an Etsy Shop? Any secrets of success? Any words of wisdom?


  1. No Etsy shop...but a word of "wisdom"- Never slap at your pant leg when you feel something crawling up your leg!

  2. I definitely think your things are up to's just hard since so many other people sell on etsy too...sometimes people may not see your stuff. I understand your thoughts...I just think it is whatever you want to do.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
