Etsy Dilemma

I have a hobby.

It is called beading.

It is very fun.

I make all sorts of things...

Earrings, Bracelets, Necklaces, Anklets, Headbands etc.

And I try to sell them on etsy.

But what does one do when they don't sell, and you don't feel like listing them for the third or fourth time?

What do YOU do?


  1. I feel the same way, Joanna! My bags aren't selling how I'd like them too. I guess it's just that there are sooo many shops out there, tons of potentional buyers don't even know your shop exists! But how do you get the word out about it? I don't understand either. I love to sew, but I only want to list things if they will actually sell! : /

    Maybe you'll get some good advice here. I'd like to read what others do!

  2. hmm... you could donate a giveaway on another blog from their event (say, bramblewood fashion's fall fashion event: ) This would not only help you get rid of it, but it would be free advertising for your shop! Just a thought :)

  3. All your items are lovely, but I don't wear earrings...I am getting my ears pierced in October, so maybe then :)

  4. Hmmm...that is quite the problem!
    I had a few ideas~could you possibly have a giveaway or ad on Feelin' Feminine to spread the word about your etsy shop? Just an idea...


  5. Thanks everybody! I'll certainly look into your suggestions.

  6. I'm doing giveaways on my blog in October...I'd be more than happy to giveaway one of your items! Just a thought...
