So who here is on Etsy and if so what is your shop/shops name? If you don't know what Etsy is it is a place to sell your handmade, vintage, and supplies. My shop name is HeathersHobbies. I have been on Etsy for the past 6 years. I am just starting to sell my knitted items. I mostly crochet baby shoes.

I was on etsy, but closed my account down, being in the uk meant very little interest, I have a folksy account tho. Just added 3 hats to it, been empty for a while, was mostly jewellery & card making I done, but back into knitting again.

Some KH users have had Etsy shops before, and they weren't too complimentary of it. Their main complaint was that when you sell something, Etsy sends ads for other businesses and never helps you promote your own business.

My mother-in-law tried to use it to sell some of her artwork; she didn't think it was worth the money.

I hope you do well with yours.

Well I have had a shop for the past 6 years. I don't make much but it's enough to pay for two car payments a month. I mostly crochet I am just starting on adding some knitted items I have made. I am not doing so well with the knitted items. My crocheted baby shoes are the most popular.
