I opened my Etsy account today.  A kind of a must for any artist/crafter looking for exposure.  For those of you who don't know,  Etsy is a website which provides small business entrepreneurs with a way to buy and sell handmade items, including art, photography, clothing ... (wikipedia definition) There are currently over 100,000 members.  

I've started my Etsy page by putting up two planes and two dandelion prints.  It's kind of exciting to see how many people have viewed my items.  Some people have chosen to "heart" me.  Which means they have added me to their lists of favorite things.  Hopefully that also means they are thinking of buying something from me.  Kind of like the way I hearted these cat nip mustaches.

I've promised Melrose as soon as I make my first sale I will buy them for her.  Don't ask me why, but she has a thing for staches

After seeing how easy Etsy was to set up I'm wondering why I even bothered with my own website and shop.  My plan was to sell stocked items through Etsy and more custom things through my own site.  I guess we will see how it all goes.  I will just be happy to sell something through anywhere.
