It seemed like Etsy was a good site for a while, but now I feel like it’s getting saturated. There are so many vendors on there now that it looks like a struggle to get noticed. Is anyone here having success selling on Etsy?
I did this in the past, but I’ve run into this same problem. I wonder if there is anyplace else to go to sell your work? I guess the only way to get noticed on a site like that is if you make something the is rare or truly unique. It’s hard for people who paint or make jewelry for a living.
My mother does pretty well on Etsy and hasn’t complained about too much competition. She mostly sells antiques that she finds at garage sales and she says Etsy’s policies are more seller-friendly than eBay’s.
