Well, I finally did it. I can cross it off my list. I have an Etsy shop. Where people can buy things. It's scary. Let me explain.
For the last several weeks, I have been doing some serious cleaning and rearranging of what will be the sort-of baby room. Since we only have two bedrooms in our house, the baby will get a half-room for now. (One corner of the room will house stuff like the sewing machine and our office stuff.) So I've been going through all of my knitting, sewing, and crafting stuff and consolidating into bigger bins that can be stored easier. I've also thrown away and donated a lot of random junk that we've accumulated over the years. Going through random boxes unearthed a ton of completed knitting projects that I made over the last 10 years that I made with intent to sell at some point.
Well, that some point is now. These things are pretty great, but they've got to go. So thank you baby, for putting my butt into gear and making me take that plunge that I've been afraid to take for so long.
So check it out. I've listed about 75% of the items that I have. I don't know if I want to list the dog sweaters that I have since I don't have dog models of all sizes, and they just aren't as quality as the purses, but for now I feel good about what I've got up there.
I am a little nervous though about my own ability to send things out on time and whether people will actually be happy with what I send them. But I suppose this is a feeling that all first time business owners/stuff sellers might be worried about...? Also, I suppose I don't have to worry about that unless I actually sell something, so I should start there for now.
Come on internet! Sell my stuff!
