How to Etsy

It’s Fall, and time to browse through Etsy Shops to discover those who really know How To Etsy!

I always like to go through the artists I’ve favorited in the past, and see if they are still there and doing well.  It’s so nice to discover that my fellow Etsy entrepreneurs are alive and still kickin’.

Etsy holds a special status in this modern marketplace of high volume-cheap labor competition. It’s not so easy to bring items to market that come handmade directly from an unknown designer’s hands, and sell it at a higher price based on a very different standard of cost and labor.

It’s a given that you’ll pay more for Jimmy Choo or Ralph Lauren items, because of their established name brands, but the Etsy entrepreneur brings every bit of skill and expertise as the top designers, but doesn’t have the advantage of cheap labor.  To make it on Etsy means you are talented and savvy, and you did it handmade, with just your two hands.

These special favorite finds and handmade items are dedicated to those who know How to Etsy.  Here’s to finding more and more all of the time!…

    These are all good features and that big pocket dress would be perfect for steaming hot days (which are a’coming!).

    The skill and creativity I find on Etsy never fails to amaze me.

    I have thought about creating a Etsy shop to sell my crochet pieces, but I don’t have much in my inventory and some of my work takes a few weeks to make so I am not sure how that would work out.

    I like what was done with the silk scarf. I thought it was a tie turned into something. Such creative designs and items.
