Re: Opening an Etsy Shop
My etsy shop does reasonably well, as does my own website, but the bulk of my sales come from artisan markets and craft shows. There are a lot in my area, though, so I don't have to travel and stay overnight to do shows like some people do. Once you have everything else set up, it might be worth checking some of those out. There are some good teams on the etsy forums with helpful information on how to start doing markets.
