Cheers for this, I been tryin to find out about "internet based home businesses" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about - Rendalyn Financial Fixify - (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some super things about it and my neighbour got cool success with it.
thanks ❤

Is it Easy to set up a shop on Etsy?? I make Fairy Houses, pretty much was just kinda messing around, and well.. I found my nitch, So I have been wondering where to start selling them, I have tried craft fair's, had 3 different booths at some indoor type Markets. They did not do so well, SO where do I turn, I LOVE making these. Where do I sell my Items!

Fuck Esty! They are blame shifting con artist and the epitome of ambiguity and incompetence.

Out of all the videos I have watched, this has been the most helpful for me in regards to confidence and push. Within the next two weeks, I will be opening up shop. I have so much to do as far as the financial peace but I'm ready to go forward. Thank you so much for everything. You rock!

Hey Sarah Ehrlich, I was inquiring just the other day and was told $9.99. So she is not the only one who has incorrect information. I am not chastising that person for it.

When selling your wreaths from home what address do you use for your customers if they ever need to send the item back?
gillian lara (1 year ago)
I appreciate you taking your time to share all this information with us. Thank you!
Lynn Sadauskas (1 year ago)
On your point on getting your name out there. You said you did a giveaway if people tagged other friends about your site. How did you decide who gets the free wreath?
dpk221 (1 year ago)
Do you like the foam or wire for wreaths?? I feel like they both are good for different types.
T&L's Nana (1 year ago)
Am just getting up nerve to sell. Although everyone's been pointing out there is no fee on etsy, I am comparing online sales to brick & mortar sales. Seems to be a bigger risk and expense if I pay rent, utilities, taxes, etc, on the shop. I'm sure I'd be happy with a small fee. (But glad none). Your q&a was great. You answered a lot of my questions. Thank you.

Anyone thinking about opening an etsy shop? With this link (http://etsy.me/2gK6Qbi) you start your shop with 40 free listing. Which is nice so you can try if Etsy is for you without spending money!
Jamin Gam (1 year ago)
Did you have start up money or did you start with what you had in stock. The reason I ask is I've made wreath and a lot of other craft. I love keeping busy and crafting forever but never tried. I have a small page with some items I'm friends and family will say oh I love it and like items but never buy. It makes my head spin!
Jamin Gam (1 year ago)
When you first started did you put sales you made go back into your business.

DeeDee Scarberry (1 year ago)
Thank you so much for this! I love your family vlog but didn't even realize you had your own channel! Questions: Did you register as a business? I thought I could just open a shop on Etsy, which I did, but am hearing that to do it the "right" way I need to register with my state/city/county and charge tax and all that fun stuff. That's the biggest hindrance for me right now because my profit would definitely not cover all those fees right now! Any insight on this would be appreciated!

This was so fascinating! I'm not currently in a stage of life to have an Etsy shop, but as an artsy lady, I like daydreaming about creating a home-based business. Thank you for sharing this information and your tips. :)
Nikki C (1 year ago)
Thanks this was really helpful! You said you buy from Hobby Lobby. Do you ever buy materials in bulk? Have you ever ran into the issue of not being able to find the same materials needed for an item you listed?
srce (1 year ago)
this is so great!
Lisa (1 year ago)
Do you still buy your materials at retail stores or do you actually buy some of your materials bulk from wholesalers? What companies would you recommend?

Samantha Patterson (1 year ago)
Hi! I'm new to the Etsy world. I work full time but hoping Etsy would be an awesome part time hobby/business. I love doing stuff with yarn. I only have like 3 items on there for now as I have a craft fair coming up in a month. I would love some advice on how to promote my Etsy shop? This video was extremely helpful.
Baby Magic (1 year ago)
Why did you close your etsy account? I mean it has only 1 item on sale now.
Jémila (1 year ago)
Thanks, this video was really informative. I make hand made jewellery, and posted my first 6 items on my Etsy shop 2 days ago. I don't have much of a following online yet, so I know that I have a lot of work cut out for me in trying to get 'the word out there.' but I think I'm up to the challenge! :) https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JemilaIsa?ref=hdr_shop_menu

Hey Nia! I was wondering how you store the wreaths you make ahead of time. I have a fb page for my lil wreath business and right now I'm doing custom wreaths.. which doesn't really do that good. I want to try to make them ahead but I don't know how to store them! It'd be awesome if you could reply! :) Love your vlogs on here and your family's!!❤️

My mom makes wreaths all the time for every occasion. She should start an etsy!
Samantha Brooklyn (2 years ago)
How old do you have to be to have an etsy?
S. Hillier (1 year ago)
Samantha Brooklyn There is no age restriction but you will need a credit card or a bank account linked to PayPal to get paid. Your parents could help if you need it, there isn't much risk.
