I first opened my Etsy shop in 2014. At this time, I had only a couple of listings, very few views, and absolutely zero sales. I set it up and just left it to its own devices, hoping that somehow someone would discover the shop on their own.
I made my first sale in February 2016.
Since the beginning of 2016, I began taking my Etsy business more seriously. Still meant to be just a side source of income I have expanded my shop to almost 20 different items and have made close to 40 sales! I know that’s not a lot compared to many success stories floating around, but I am happy with it… That’s $500 more than I would have had!
I am excited to use both this blog and my Etsy shop to display new creations; some things may be just a one-time for fun test of a pattern, while others may become new listings in the shop. I invite you to come check it out at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ReelBigStitch!
