Remember last week when I said that I had some exciting news?? Well here it is!
I OPENED AN ETSY STORE!!!!!!
To keep everything easy to find, I named the Etsy store CraftyLittleSecret as well (search for it as all one word like that on Etsy), and you can check it out for yourself by clicking “Shop” in the menu at the top of the page, or by clicking here;
I decided to fill the shop for now with my hand embroidered onesies and some cute little felt tags I’ve been working on (tutorial coming up). I’ve tossed around the idea a bit of putting some other things in there, like maybe my placemats or double-sided napkins but nice fabric can be expensive so I’m not sure I’d be able to offer those at a price people would be willing to pay. My one regret is that with shipping and the exchange rate the onesies will be much more expensive for all my Canadian peeps to order.
I’ve been using a couple books as good resources for figuring out how to start a handmade business on the side and I’m planning on reviewing those soon when I finish them, so if you’re hoping to start your own handmade business….stay tuned!
I’d love to hear how you go, and to hear about any titles you think are worthwhile. What a funny coincidence we’ve both gone down the Etsy path at the same time 🙂 I wish you all the best with the store!
