Was once on etsy, as Peter Elliott wrote, lots of turnings on there. I believe some folks get frustrated and lower the price till their stuff moves. I was asked if I would lower my prices for a multiple  order. I lowered the price 20% was already quite low IMHO, The person was happy but her other half said NOPE.  If I had lowered the price anymore I figured I would have been making less then $5.00 per hr , not counting getting the wood, adding finish, nor any other expense that was made doing the project  Shocked  Roll Eyes.I might go back to etsy someday but from what I found out there is a lot to do to get noticed. I've sold more stuff through FB and it can be upgraded to get more advertisement plus it's cheaper then etsy.
