Anyone sell on Etsy?
I just made an Etsy account because I want to post a few items at some point. (soaps, knitted things, candles, etc etc)

Is it worth it? Do people actually buy knitted items??
I am not looking to be rich but at some point, I'm going to need to support my yarn habit XD

Well, I can't say that i've bought anything yet. But if I had the money, which I may in the comming month or so, I'd buy something if it was quirky and cute.

I have a ton of yarn in my favorites... just waiting to be bought though... :D

I'd say go for it. You never know until you try.

Whats the link to your shop? :D

I've got some ideas for small things, as well as a few medium and bigger things. It does cost a little to list your items, but I guess nothing ventured, nothing gained eh?

Of course this is for down the road a bit, so we'll see :-)

I have sold on Etsy before, and bought a few things. It's worth a try at least. The good thing about Etsy is that it's all handmade stuff so the shoppers are there for the handmade goods, not necessarily a bargain like on Ebay.

If you sell hand dye yarn to sell, where do you get the yarn from?
