Who knows if this is the beginning of a trend, or simply beginners luck. I sold my first Ketubah on etsy yesterday after having the shop open for two days.
I have been a bit overwhelmed by the power of etsy. I guess I am fortunate to be benefiting from all of the excellent resources that etsy offers, from helping you think carefully about the name of your shop to tutorials on subjects such as SEO, to creating your mini etsy on your blog and facebook.
I am not trying to say that it is easy—on the contrary, it takes a lot of work to get a shop going, but the folks at etsy really help you out every step of the way.
The community is also very supportive. Other shop owners are very generous with advice and etsy shoppers are generous with their hearts and feedback.
Great experience so far. We will see what day three brings!
