Want to see how I started?
Take a look at my very first sale:
Needless to say, it took a while to find what stuck - and what I didn't lose interest in making. And in looking back, I'm encouraged - because when I see how much I've learned and grown and changed with the times, it's a good feeling! I hope you're encouraged, too. I can assure you - shops with lots of sales didn't just pop up overnight.
Just for fun, I love to look at some of my favorite shops and see where they started out, too. For the majority of them, I find poorly lit photographs of items that look nothing like what they're selling now. It's a journey. And it's beautiful to see.
Speaking of Etsy shops, do you have favorites to share? I always love new finds! Let me know in the comments!
