Have you heard of Etsy? I kind of describe it as the world’s largest online craft fair, art show, vintage shop, supplies store in the world. People from all over have made their own virtual stores on Etsy where they sell everything from original works of art to hair bows. Basically your shop is what you make it.
I love Etsy because it puts me directly in touch with the person who made the treasure I just found. It’s like the coolest, most original stuff being made by the nicest people I’ve never met. Once you get the hang of it, I know you’ll love it!!
Here’s a few Etsy tips for newcomers:
1. It’s safest and easiest to pay with Paypal.
2. Make sure to click on “Policies” and read what’s there. That’s where you’ll usually find out how long shipping takes, what forms of payment they accept, return policies and more.
3. If you want to ask a question click on the Contact button. This will open a little Conversation or “Convo” window where you can send a little message to the shop owner. Convo is like Etsy’s in house email system, your personal email address will not be displayed.
