I Have an Etsy shop!

Yesterday I spent several hours setting up a shop on Etsy, which is sort of an EBay for handmade items. You don't have to bid, as all the prices are set by the seller. I have had lots of fun searching Etsy and admiring the creations. I have also purchased art from two of my favorites, Violette Clark and Fannie Narte.

My shop is called, big surprise, All Things Quilty. Not sure if that is a good idea or not, but my blog readers can find me easily! My Etsy user name is quiltnc. I have thumbnails of some of my Etsy items on my sidebar.

It took about two hours to set up the shop and list the first item. After that, it was much faster. So far, I have just listed several fabric postcards. I will continue to add items, including some of my trapunto quilts.

Thanks for looking! If anyone has any ideas to improve my Etsy page, I would be glad to hear from you.

I love your work! I think you will do great at Etsy. The only small friendly criticism I can make about your picture quality. Your images are little bit blurry too me and don’t forget to add more items.Good luck with your new shop.:)

All the best,

Good for you Jeanne. I set one up to right before Christmas and hope to officially "launch" it soon when I have a nice stock of items.
I am going to go and pay your shop a visit. Congratulations.

PS when I clicked on the word "Etsy" in your post it did not take me anywhere.
