I am shocked at how well my etsy store is doing. I sell mostly vintage millinery flowers and have done very well. millinery and craft supplies are about 1/2 to 2/3 of my sales but hats, clothing and hair clips, old purses, etc also do very well. many weeks the profit from etsy is higher than the profit from ebay, because the fees are so low.
click on my store
there is an "items sold" section to show exactly what each store has sold.
i have etsy regulars, lots of them actually, and they are the nicest people. remember etsy buyers are more educated than most
material does very well too. just find a large seller's "items sold" page and use the same keywords and tags. etsy buyers use different terms than the usual ebay keywords and they love "color" words (use shade descriptions). peeking at what the other sellers are listing will also keep you from under pricing your vintage supplies.
put me in your "circle" and feel free to convo with any questions.
hi, I do pretty well selling vintage items on etsy, I also sell some handmade crafts (hand embroidery)
but I know for sure that I sell more vintage then handmade crafts. here's my shop link if you want to see what kinds of vintage items I sell and have already sold. my shop name is Vintage Plus Crafts
I just recently put up 6-8 items, but am unsure if this is the right venue for me, I sell alot of "real antiques", and many high end - ie expensive pieces. So I don't know if I'm going to get very far here. I've been searching for an alt to ebay - I can't live by their rules man! LOL
But, because I won't except returns, and I do charge for shipping, it seems I am now burried in search there.
Has anyone tried selling higher end items there? Would love to hear feed back - especially on jewelry, pottery, and glass??
And if anyone has had better luck with these type items elsewhere - please share! Thanks
the most expensive pc I have sold on esty or bonanza is $750.
what is your shop name vicki?
I sell mostly higher end arts myself though I do end up with a lot of lower end and moderate pieces. My biggest problem is having the time to list items and promote the shop. Hoping to have some time this week to place more items up.
