Etsy Thoughts

by adustyframe ~ March 13th, 2014

My Etsy shop was pretty slow last year. Etsy doesn’t require a lot of work from me but if I want to promote it, I’d need to spend a lot more time on it.

After I did the taxes, I decided that for now it’s just not worth it for me to have the Etsy shop. I do waver a bit because if I sell a photo print that’s no more work for me. I just print it and get paid. It seems to happen that whenever I decide to quit my Etsy shop, I sell a print and change my mind.

This week, I thought more about it and decided that when my current listings expire, I’d close my Etsy shop. This morning when I went to look at the shop, I discovered that everything was expired and I have nothing for sale. That seems like an easy decision right? But I felt like, “Whoa! I didn’t mean today….I just meant in the future!”

What a goof I am. Over the next few days, I just have to decide if I’ll renew anything or just let it go.

I was so thankful for the bits of income it provided especially when my husband was “away”. Every single penny I made mattered so much! Maybe that’s why I’m having a little trouble completely closing it up!

    I have been thinking about opening an etsy shop, but have to take some time to review how it all works.
