I had been busy... for Etsy debut!

Bird coin purse

This week, I made a major decision in my life...  I finally opened my little handmade shop on Etsy!   I'm sure many of you are already familiar with Etsy, but for those who are not, etsy is a global online marketplace for handmade supplies and goods.

I had thought about this for a while, but I never had courage to give it a try.   But lately, with a few of my friends' (and my daughters') encouragements, I finally did it!   Thank you, friends, for your warm words and continued support, especially to my blog friend and fellow etsy seller, cocostitch!
  
BTW I named my etsy shop "chick chick handmade".   And here are some of my handmade items I listed on my shop so far...


Bird coin purse (red polka dots)


Bird coin purse (floral)


Passport case / organizer (Echino ornament wreath in purple)


Passport case / organizer (leaves on linen)


Pencil pouch with handles (apple)


Crochet/Fabric drawstring bag (pale blue)

... and more items will be showing up in the shop soon ;)

As you already know, making handmade items, especially from sewing and crocheting, is my passion.   I just hope that some of my creations make others happy, as much as I do.

However, I noticed already that making handmade stuff and selling them is a totally different story...  It's not always easy for me to advertise my handmade stuff on the internet.   This week, I've spent long hours sitting in front of the computer, try to do my best to write up item descriptions and to design shop banners, etc...

I don't know how well I can do, and finding time to do all this is another issue for me, but I'll try to enjoy every aspect of it and do my best as etsy seller.   Come visit my little shop if you have a chance!


Thank you for reading and hope you continue to have a great weekend :)

I wish I could have more time to sew, so that I can follow your pace, open a shop to sell my handmade clothing and zakka too....:).

改めてショップおめでとうございます。確かにハンドメイドを作る事と、売ることは違いますよね。でもAmyさんが言うようにEnjoyする事が何よりも大切!いろんな国の人と交流が持てること、暖かいフィードバックや励ましが何よりも財産になりますよ。一緒に頑張りましょう!
