Interesting question for some....easy to answer for some but not for others. I guess many of us have sold on Ebay at one time or another. Some with good results and some not. It's a great venue for some things and not for others. It was also getting expensive. I make things because I like to and I like to share what I make with others. Most of the items I make I give away but it can be an expensive hobby so why not sell some of the things I make? Will I ever get rich? Probably not. I can and do reach a wider audience to sell my items to. I do one "show" a year and that is for about 30 people. Of course they are all Scottie people so they are the perfect target shoppers! Etsy was another venue to showcase my items. I just haven't had time to add anything to the shop of late.
My other reasons for selling on Etsy are my babies Miss Sassy & Mr. Murphy who left us this this year due to cancers.
And the three still with us.... Miss Katie, Sam E and Bert.
and all the Scotties out there waiting for a loving home.
