My Neglected Etsy Store

Made a Sale
I've neglected my store!! I guess I lost hope that people would be interested in my handmade goodies. I woke up this morning to see an "Etsy Transaction" email. Woohoo a sale. So the silly thinking needs to stop!!
This brooch is going all the way to Texas - very close to wear I was living in 2008/2009.
But the question remains ETSY or MADEIT???

Where do you get the most sales?? I am having the same dilemma. I have joined Etsy and will join Madeit over Christmas......but may have to think about it....not sure of the costs from handmade?......mmmmmmmm I am pondering.

I've only just started the made it store. And this is the first Etsy sale since moving back to Australia.
It's a dilemma!!!! I also have an artfire store - which lets me post items for free - so that could be an option for o/seas buyers....

I think with Etsy - I can't compete with the American prices (craft supplies are about half the price they are here).

Gemma Dilemma - that's my name!

Congratulations on your sale!. I've been pondering the same thing too. Etsy has been slow for me so I've been moving items to my madeit store, which has picked up a bit. I guess I do need to put more into Etsy and see if it improves.

Congratulations on the sale. That brooch sue is going to brighten some ones day and lift any outfit it graces.
As for the Made It/Etsy dilemma, I can’t help; I’ve not been brave enough yet to try either.

Whichever you choose, It's all about workin it baby. keeping it fresh, listing at the right time of day to get most exposure, and a million other things to take into account ! Good luck deciding..

I'm having the same issue with Etsy vs Made it, I don't get that many sales compared to my website and consignments to be honest! argh...

And thanks for the birthday wishes, the bun in the pic is my old bun Flossie, her naughtiness was only surprised by that of her boyfriend Mr Franz!
