You would think I worked for Etsy by reading this list, but I don’t. I actually started an Etsy shop to sell felt hair clips in 2008 to earn a little extra money for Christmas gifts. My life has been changing ever since. Now I work with my husband full-time on our handmade business, handmade blogs and our new community for makers…HandmadeTickle.com.
I see so many creative people with huge potential, and we would love to help you grow your dreams into an amazing future!
There are countless reasons why you should start an Etsy shop, but this should give you a few ideas.
