I'm brand new to Etsy, so I haven't seen the turn over that some people see, like the woman in this article - but if you've got a great product and can keep up with the demand, then you've got a great home business on your hands!!!
I have some close friends that are living proof of Etsy success all in different areas of trade:
-Dallas Shaw with DallasShaw has been shipping out her illustrations on canvas and tee shirts nonstop!
-Kitty Wilkin with Heart of Nature is doing her best to keep her photography in stock!
With so many talented artists out there, the competition is rough! But at the same time, with so many talented artists, there is so many options to choose from!! So if you're looking for a gift this season - SHOP HANDMADE!!!!!
