It was one year ago today that I took the leap and opened my Etsy shop. It was one of those what the #* things, so why not. I'd been told many times I should sell my stuff, but all the other venues required a huge financial risk. Etsy seemed like a low risk proposition.
I don't regret my decision. The last year has had its ups and downs, but mostly ups. The customers have been great and if I was to say a down it'd be slow sales. Starting from zero rep I've gotten sales and this year I hope to triple that or more. Actually more ;D
