Cazhoffy was the first Etsian that I ever purchased a product from, and through our interaction I learned a lot about providing quality customer service. Following our exchange, I let Cazhoffy know that I was thinking of starting a shop and asked for some advice. She was so generous in telling me about her experiences as an Etsy seller that I knew this was something I wanted to be part of. Check out her fantastic handmade baby items.
Kmonds has been a terrific supporter and fabulous about including me in his treasuries. Yesterday the first piece that I ever posted on Etsy was included in a Kmonds treasury and it sold. When I let him know that it sold, he let me know that he loves supporting other Etsy stores that are getting started. Kmonds has terrific collection of vintage finds!
AMarigoldLife was so open to communicating with me about her two shops and I found the Positivity Team through her. She has a great vintage shop as well as a shop with handmade items.
Finally, Karilan gave me some great advice about blogging. Her blog is great and was a source of inspiration for me to get started.
