Made By Mom

I have recently become a part of the online Handmade Community. I joined Etsy and opened my own shop Made by Mom on June 29th, 2009. I have always had an interest in crafting as a way to make money, but was discouraged by high start up costs. The fees for craft fairs are expensive with no guarantee that you’ll sell anything. Etsy has a low start up cost and you don’t have to produce mass inventory you can make one or a few list it in your shop and see if it sells before investing mass amounts of money. As you build up sales you can expand try new things and add new items.

Even if you aren’t thinking of setting up shop Etsy is still a great place for buyers.  I am  amazed by all the wonderful and unique handmade items people sell on Etsy.  Buying handmade is a great way to support small business. If you like art and are inspired by creativity Etsy is definitely a place you want to be. It’s a great way to start early Christmas shopping without even having to leave home, not to mention you won’t have to deal with the crazed mobs of shoppers that seem to be worse every year.
