January sales on Etsy, and the Etsy Heart Exchanger

After my last post, I ended up with many sales for January. I had several on both Etsy shops. I had 7 sales in them and I was able to finally get a few items sold I otherwise was not able to for years. One of them was a little Napco figurine that I had listed for 3-4 years. I was going to let the listing run out on Etsy and put it up in my home because I figured it would not ever sell. So now it is at a new home and I do not have to do that.
I have listed a good amount in January and made some new cross necklaces and working on a new Wall cross. I will get it done sooner or later. I will then be finished with the wall crosses until later on when a few have sold.

I found a new extension that is called the 'Etsy Heart Exchanger' on Google. It really helps to get the views and hearts needed daily for your shops.

Is Etsy alive right now? Wake up!

Etsy has been sleeping since the first of the year. Not many sales, I guess that is because the shopping season has went to sleep with Christmas over. So this month I have been painting and rejuvenating things. My son, Danny, is joining in some of the work. I have done a great deal of painting more frames, and I ordered paint to do more projects. I painted a new cross and a shelf as well. I am sharing my work right now, buy buy buy.

Streetcrossing Hobbybox: Etsy Shop: End of the Year selling in 2016, Changes for 2017

End of the Year selling in 2016, Changes for 2017

The year 2016 has been pretty descent. The sales were numerous for the holidays. I believe I had about 30 sales in 3 months on eBay and Etsy. So I am not complaining and some of them happened in one week, which sent me to the post office every day for a few weeks. I am happy about it though. 

The first of the year I will be painting many frames due to selling them all but 2 over the holidays. My son Danny will be joining in the work this year. He will be helping me here on out for the time being until he finds a job or returns to college. We are also going to make several cross necklaces, design several wall crosses. I am doing some art again, so this too will be added into it. We got vintage movies out the kazoo to list also. 

Of course our crafting room is going to be changing and all so we  have more space for 2-3 of us to work. I want to be able to create new and sell new items with my son. I have no idea yet how I will involve him in this business yet, but I will figure it out.
Well, until next year, Happy New Year for 2017.
