How good is the site for selling your stuff? I create jointed teddy bears, and am going to also sell supplies for making teddy bears and other craft related items that I would like to clear out of my home. I am wondering how the response has been for people that have been selling on ETSY. Please help me make my decision. Thanks

I really hope you have luck with Etsy should you join. I joined sometime ago....I did have luck selling one of my Native American themed teddy bear, but none of my other stuff. The main problem with Etsy is that there's a lot of members meaning a LOT of competition out there..everyone has the same idea and hopes of selling their stuff there. Same with something like setting up shop at Cafe Press, which I also have an account...one can use one's own photos or artwork to make greeting cards, journals, tote bags, t-shirts, but in the two or so years I've been there not a nibble...
