I have only used ETSY to sell vintage items such as prints taken from damaged books. However, anyone looking for some new ideas might find what they are looking for with this site. If you are good at making things this might be for you as they tend to specialise in home made items. I have, at times, done some research into this and considering that they only charge about 20p to list something for 4 months, it can't be bad. Really putting this up as 'food for thought'.

I know a handful of 'I make stuff' style people who used to sell on Etsy and they now all sell on their own marketplace or Facebook instead. The Customer Support they say from them ain't great, especially when you need it most!

My sister makes a full time wage on Etsy, selling themed printables. Easy as well because once it’s created all has to do is email a pdf when it sells. She’s been doing it for years though so has a shop with over 250 things in it. I’m going to create some of my own when I have time and give it a go.

Only thing I have sold on etsy is prints taken from defunct books. Did try offering (my own) digital quotes once, but never sold one lol. Did have the idea of selling paper mache trees and similar, but found it took a lot of time and just buying and selling on ebay is far easier.

Gosh, maybe I should try giving something like that a shot!
