I was away most of the day at a little brunch type thing with some friends..so I didn't get a chance to look at my e-mails--so when I got home I started to sift through them--I do get a lot of them...then lo and behold I got a notification from Paypal that I had a payment in my account-- You see only two nights ago, while being here believe it or not, I came across someone....BartsDiamond who had started a discussion about selling her crafts on-line with the website Etsy.com--now I had never heard of this place before...so I go to check it out...It's a website..where one who sells crafts can hook up with, create a page on their site to sell your craft items..something almost similar in principal to e-bay but just for crafts...so I figure nothing ventured nothing gained, right? So I decided to place photos of my dreamcatcher necklaces and my little "SWift bear" teddy bear...WELL..all I can say is that I'm going to have hustle my buns and make more..BECAUSE ...I SOLD ONE ALREADY..YAHOOOOOOOOO! UH, I guess you can tell I'm happy about this...I just had to share this with you folks...and hey if any others out there are into crafts go check out http://www.Etsy.com who knows,,,you might get lucky too!!!!!

Thanks for the website! I have considered selling my Ukrainian Eggs that I make on ebay. But when I went to read the terms and conditions for a seller, I got very confused and said forget it. One has to be a lawyer to completely understand all the terms and conditions with ebay. So, I stopped making them when I started with myLot last November...myLot has taken up my spare time. ha ha While opposed to the hours I spent on my eggs. But maybe if I can start selling them, I can start splitting my time between the two. :) Thanks! I am going to have to sign up and look into seeing how much it would cost to ship my items for sale. :)

Etsy does take a percentage -- to post each item they charge 20 cents and take a percentage when it's sold--just like e-bay in a way...but if I was able to understand the "rules" anyone can--LOL Yes I know--now that I already successfully sold something I'm going have to shake my booty and pump out those teddy bears again--each one takes me three days in my "spare" time to do--so to juggle that and come here, and scan my photos, and build my photo website and......uh??? Mmmm...think I'm doing too much?--LOL

CONGRATS! It is great to sell your hand crafted items! I have sold a few, so I know how it feels! Continued lick and I have bookmarked the website. I may have to put a few things on it. Thanks for the great post
