After 3 years, I've decided to close my Etsy shop. I'd let it lag, and it had been sitting empty for over a year and a half - so I though it was best to stop wasting space. I'm still making things, and would like to start selling again when I'm ready, but right now I'm sewing for fun and friends, not for sales.
All in all it was a success, I sold about 40 purses, made some pocket money, plus I got to make a connection with the Made Boutique in Burlington, VT and sell some bags up north. Wholesaling was tough, but satisfying.
Bye-bye Etsy, it was fun!!
