Before I started listing stuff in my etsy shop, I did searches to see how many similar items were being listed. Of course, this was back in March. So I finally decided on some items to focus on. If you did the same searches today, you will find many listings for similar items, and many of them are listed at lower prices. I just don't understand how people can be making enough to make it worthwhile after fees and packaging and supplies. It blows my mind, and it's a bit discouraging.
The more I do this whole online thing, the more I think digging in locally would be much more successful. That's a whole other ballgame, though. There's almost an overload online. There are so many similar things, and almost everything imaginable has been done. Whereas, I know so much of this has never been seen locally. Now that I've made this realization, I just have to figure out what it means for me.
While I'm here, I'll share a few of the items I've been listing today.
