I finally did it! There are now five hand-knitted items up in my Etsy store ready to be sent into the loving hands of the first person to plunk down some money. I spent Monday and Tuesday working on item descriptions, photos, shipping policies, normal policies, store appearance and more. Today I finished up tags for items, mini lavender and rose sachets to tie on with the tag, and uploaded everything.
The waiting game is always hard, but apparently it will take some time to build traffic to my shop and get sales rolling. In the meantime, I have many more items to list and then can start on making some new items. I’m crossing my fingers that with some good marketing and promotion that this can become a decent revenue stream to supplement my freelance design work.
I hope you will visit the shop and let me know what you think!
