Hi. I am wondering if I have made a big mistake in closing my Etsy store! After hearing from many sources how wonderful Etsy was for selling their products I opened my own Etsy shop as well. I had been selling my sea glass jewelry primarily from my Coastal Charms Jewelry website. I did not receive orders for 6 months on Etsy!!! I did have a few page views, but that was about it. Of course, I don't think I had more than 20 sea glass items in the store. As you probably know, the field of sea glass jewelry is SUPER competitive. I felt like I probably would need to make Etsy my primary site!!!
Did I not have enough sea glass jewelry items to get anyones attention? Did I not give the shop enough time? Have you had luck selling on Etsy and or your own website? I would love to hear from you! In the meantime, I continue to love selling my sea glass jewelry from my Coastal Charms Jewelry website :)) I felt like if someone went to Etsy, they would see other peoples sea glass jewelry and be tempted to buy theirs and not mine!!! I don't like to compete:)) Hope to hear from you! Thanks, Deb.
