What Have I Gotten Myself Into???


Good grief, I have an up and running Etsy Shop now!

It's a sad little shop, with just one little item for sale, but it's a start!
Fiona & Twig on Etsy
Now just go take a peek at how I have things set up,
most especially the shop policies and such.
To those of you superstar Etsy sellers here on my blog roll,
just know that I cribbed this-n-that from your policies
'cause I truly don't know what I'm doing!

 I'd also love to hear from all of you who do have Etsy shops, 
just maybe sharing your experiences and what to watch out for.

Thanks muchly in advance!

Oh, and I'd like to encourage everyone 
to head on over to visit Jill at Gypsy Brocante to celebrate




I'm fresh outta black, but I always 
want to direct folks over to Jill's fantastic blog!

Hi Anne!
I just opened my Etsy shop too & like you I have ONE item!! how embarrassing huh? ha, ha :o} But like you I am trying to get stuff together......I'm making more pillows (shhhh it's a secret....) they are going to be adorable...but I've had a VERY sick girl for the last few days so I'm nurse mommy right now. Sorry to go on & on. I feel like I know all you guys now! ;-)

Take care & great job!

Congratulations Anne...
I am so thrilled for you sweetie. So you only have one thing in your shop, it is a very fine vase at that. Love it. Believe me everyone has to start somewhere, and all of these ladies have had to start with something too.

Love the little girls face on this post. It is just precious. Thanks for sharing sweetie, and I will be watching. Stop by soon, I love to have you visit. Country hugs, Sherry

Jennifer said...

Congratulations... looks like you are going to do well... since you already sold your one item!! It took me a lot longer than that to get my first sale (just last week). I haven't had my shop set up on there very long, so I don't have a whole lot of advice... sorry! I think your policies look great! You can find a lot of help and advice in the forums if you need it. Good luck... I'm sure you will do well!

I have just spent the best part of 3 weeks getting my website boutique up. I think opening a physical store would have been less complicated.
Good luck to both of us!!!
I'm having my grand opening and give-away on Monday. Hope you will be there!
Love the kid on skates!

How funny..Etsy shops are a blast.

In fact I have 2...plus my website...my Flea market blog and my space at an antique store~WHEW Oh, forgot to mention my day~job..I run my own daycare~lol

I am leaving my space after Thanksgiving though.....no time to constantly rearrange and buy BIG items.

I went over to your Etsy and your item already SOLD!!! Good for you....now go list some more things.

I f you are interested...I would love you to join my Black Friday Flea market.....a few of us shop owners are getting together. Jill from Gypsy Brocante was my first vendor to join.

I am doing the promoting and hosting a vendor meet & Greet on my blog...where we are all going to show off our Flea Market aprons :)
