I am up and running at my Etsy Shop, which is kind of a big deal for me since for the longest time I have been saying that I needed to get my virtual store set up. I am a professional procrastinator, really! If one can make procrastination their life's work, I have probably done that.
I started out listing things, old things, that we have around the house. We love estate and garage sales and have found some fabulous old treasures. I am able to part with some of these, especially when there is some GREEN associated with their departure. I have made some seriously good profits on some of my listings.
So, I thought that I would list a few of these things that I have been making for a few years. I make Thread Catchers and have developed my own design. I listed a couple of them and they sold almost immediately. Probably means that I under-priced them. So I made two more and listed them but with a higher price. They sold almost immediately. Now, I have four more to list, again I am upping the price and we'll see how they do. I would like to think that my designs are so spectacular that they fly off the shelves, so to speak. But I probably just didn't ask enough for them.
Here are a few of the ones that I have already listed. These things sit on the sewing table and act as little trash bags for threads and cuttings. The pincushion is detachable for when you just want a pincushion and not the bag.
My next step is to write the pattern and sell it on Etsy.
