I just made my first Etsy purchase. Yay! I think it may be the start of a downward spiral!!! Folksy is pretty cool too, I think it will be better when it gets more popular like Etsy. I like the thought of buying from the UK because its supporting UK designers and artists and I find it quite difficult to search for things I want from the UK on Etsy.

I find it hard to find UK based artists. You can do the 'search local' thing but that only brings up recent items non? You can find people who will ship to the UK. I just wish the search functions were a bit better on Etsy.

Yeah and if you "search local" you only get select items, you can't search for all UK jewellery for example, you would get everything UK at that time. Pffffft...

snowqueen - I have never sold things, but I have bought quite a few things. I find that stuff I get on etsy I get so many compliments on!

Summer is still in full swing where I live so I got these floral mini dresses recently. The belts came with the dresses. The seller takes frumpy vintage dresses and skirts and turns them into really cute and modernized items that still have that vintage feel.

Thats not me in the pics.

Pics are from etsy.com/Belleswhistlesthrift.

Really depends on what you sell. Etsy attracts a lot of people who love cute & vintage stuff, for the rest it's another story...
Then it's like with any other store: either you've got good marketing or you don't.

What I like on Etsy is that the selling fees are rather low & you can see who likes your stuff, which I think is great feedback (as an artist/designer) even when you don't sell much.

I love etsy, I buy all my earrings there. Much cheaper! Thats why I wanted to ask you (maybe its a bit odd), if there are etsy-addicts here maybe you can help me by finding look-a-likes of these:


and

urbanoutfitters.com

I really like them but they are too expensive to ship from the US to Belgium!
If somebody knows where I could find them, please let me know! I would be so grateful!
