Question Please Help!

Hi ya'll. Well, after selling a few things on ebay, I decided to try out etsy. I set up an account and put a several things on my site. I've had multiple viewings of some of my bows, but no one's bought anything. I know I haven't given it much time yet and I'm being impatient. I was just wondering if anyone would be willing to check it out for me and let me know your opinions on if I'm charging too much, etc.? My store (username) is edenhopehairbows on etsy as well. Please let me know what you think?

it's been one day, lol! You'll drive yourself nuts looking at how people view and don't buy. You have to remember, when we look, it counts, too, lol!

I hearted you!

In order to keep in the top of an etsy search, you want to list frequently, not all at once.

OK! Thanks for the tips...I guess Etsy makes me Antsy....haha it's been a looooooong day.
I've just been getting down on myself I guess. I've sold quite a few bows to people I know locally but am too chicken to try and sell them in a store, etc. I'm interested in the craft show idea but don't know for sure how to get in on them. I am still hoping to sell online, but it is very competitive and I think local people are more blown away when they see my bows, whereas bows like mine are more common place online.

LOL!

etsy also has a forum...you can go there, too...it can be pretty addicting as well, but not like this site, lol!

seriously, they offer LOTS of advice and you can ask etsy specific questions.

Yes, I did try to list them for fairly cheap, but I wasn't really sure how to price them and thought that would make them sell. Still don't have any etsy sells, but I did sell a few on ebay (I just hate the listing fees). I did meet a beautician this week who wants to put some of my bows in her shop, so fingers are crossed!!!
