Buying and selling handcrafted goodies on!

I’m so excited – I’ve just launched a shop on Etsy for my calligraphy bits and bobs. I wondered if you’ve ever bought from the site before, or sold there? Any Etsy fans, wedding suppliers or admirers, I’d really love to hear your advice and opinions about the site.

I am (… is this sad?!) looking forward to reading the Quick Start Guide for sellers later on, but in the meantime any hints and tips you lovely people have to share will be ever so welcome!

I must thank my lovely friend Jo from Vintage Twee whose store has very much inspired mine! I’ve always loved how Jo’s store looks, and I was taking inspiration from her this morning (she has no idea…) so Jo, thank you!!!

If you haven’t discovered Etsy yet, then allow me to share two fabulous weddings with you – both Naomi and Rachel bought goodies from, and their English Weddings were featured on my favourite wedding blog (I’m biased haha)…

  • Congratulations on your new etsy shop! Your calligraphy items are so elegant!

  • You are brilliant to be making a go of it with Etsy. If I were planning my big day, Etsy would be among my top choices for all things wedding. I am a huge fan of individual artisans making their mark on the world. I pray your endeavor is a huge success!

    Good luck with your Etsy adventures. Look forward to hearing how it goes. Somehow from considering Etsy I ended up using Shopify instead, sure there was a good reason at the time!
