Default dilemma

Ok now my bow business is my 3rd job. I work 40 hours in a medical office and wait tables on the weekends. I am looking to quit the second job. So I am looking at beefing up my etsy shop. Don't get me wrong etsy has been good to me. So I have been browsing tons of shops. One thing I notice is all the ladies who have the highest sales none sell as many korkers as I do. So I am trying to branch out. Korkers take lots of time and are a PIA. Is there something else you guys think I could offer? Do kufis really sell that well? I think I am going to get into bottle cap bows a little more. What is one of your best sellers? Thanks in advance!


p.s. I am going out of my korking mind!!!!!!!

The thing I don't like about Etsy is people sell at rock bottom prices how they make money I don't know I'm guessing repeat customers.. buying lots of items at once... I tried Etsy and it just didn't work for me.. I'm glad to hear its better to you!! I've never attempted a korker it looks to time consuming for me!!! when I did Etsy my kufis sold well I added a fancier flower on them and people loved them...
