My First Buy!

I finally sold something on Etsy. I just posted about waiting on a sale and a few hours ago my first sale. I am so excited. Now I wait for payment to clear and I ship.

The husband says I shouldn't have lowered the prices in the shop. I think the lower price got me a sale. It is all trial and error for me. I have read plenty of blogs and read plenty of tips.

Now to sell some books. That is really what has piled up around the house. There are two book shelves and 3 piles on the floor.

That also means that I am meeting my 12 in 2012 goals. Check that off the list on the next update.


  1. Congratulations! That is exciting - I have never sold anything off etsy or ebay.... Just bought.

  2. This is my first try at Etsy. I am trying again at ebay and I finally got a couple bids this week. I am realizing that in order to sell I may have priced too low to make any money after the fees between the site and paypal. So much to learn. So much.
