I opened my Etsy store a while ago by posting 12 items that I'd made over the course of a few weeks. Featuring crappy photography, a lack-luster selection of products, and a temporarily one-handed shop girl (my right hand was in a splint for a couple of weeks... long story), I really didn't expect too much from this first venture into the world of online craft-selling. So imagine my surprise when I received an email on Friday afternoon stating that $30 had been transferred to my PayPal account for two necklaces! Now I've got them all packaged up for their journey to Canada - and my little store front has been updated to say that I've made two sales. Yes!
Now that I've got two working hands again, I plan to put in a bit more effort (and elbow grease on the photography side) to make things a bit more... professional looking. Ha! But until then, my goal of "selling something on etsy.com" has been entirely completed. Bring on the rest of the list!
