After making these bags, I decided to post them on my Facebook page and see what kind of responses I would get. In 2 days, I sold 4 for sure and 3 more people 'very interested' having one of my bags. I really want my etsy shop to be a little busier. I sold 4 things in about 1 yr I had the shop. Etsy is wonderful, and yet it's so easy for my stuff to get 'lost' as there are SO MANY things being listed everyday. The shipping cost via Canada Post is becoming very expensive as well. I hate to charge 15 dollars shipping on a 30 dollar bag. that just doesn't make any sense to me. But I also feel like it is time for me to get out of my comfort zone and start selling my stuff to *strangers, if you know what I mean. I live in a small town and I feel like I have already exhausted my faithful local fans. Don't get me wrong, my friends have been so supportive and wonderful. It's like when you have a home business like 'Tupperware" etc. and all your friends have hosted a party for you and now you have to get out and promote yourself to the world out there so you can take it to the next level. I feel like I am coming to that point, which is terribly exciting and yet terribly frightening at the same time. I am considering taking a part in an art market in a nearby city sometime.....what to do, what to do???
