Etsy can be a good community to join, but it can real fickle too.  I've been on it for several years and have some success, but not really enough to justify the cost.  I get plenty of lookers, many favorites, but no sales in a while.  I also promote my listings and that cost me about 30.00 dollars a month.  Silly?  Maybe, but you never know when that sale will happen.

I have two stores on Etsy, one for wedding items and the other for rustic kitchen utensils and decor. I recommend that you watch some videos or read up on how to make money on Etsy. If you don't enjoying copy writing, posting images, photography, reviewing stats, etc. then think twice.

When I become a rich and famous woodturner (ha) maintaining my online presence will be the first thing I delegate.

Good luck,

Jenn
