My Etsy Shop September Sale

I’ve not really done much to promote my own Etsy shop but I think now is the time. The weather is now getting cooler and I’m sure my cowls would be appreciated as well as my gloves. I have a gorgeous baby blanket for sale as well and I am planning on adding a few more baby items. I have decided to reduce the price of my makes in the hope that I may have my first sale sometime soon. So here are the items in my September Sale.

Thanks for taking a look. If you are a member of Etsy I’d really appreciate a view and maybe a favourite on my items. Being a new seller I don’t get much traffic. Even if you don’t buy anything you can help me get noticed a little more. Thank you in advance. xx

I Took the Plunge and Opened An Etsy Shop

I’ve been thinking of opening an Etsy shop for a while. I love Etsy and I wanted to make things to sell too. I’ve been crocheting for a few years now and I’ve made lots of different things. My blankets have been my favourite things to make, but they take so long and I fall in love with them so I find them hard to part with. I have made two blankets for friend’s babies though, so I may make some more baby blankets. In the meantime I have made some of my second favourite things, scarves. Now, I’m afraid, as much as I feel you can’t have too many blankets, you can have two many scarves, so I’m happy to let these go to new homes.

As well as scarves I decided to add some fingerless mittens, or wrist warmers. I made some for myself and as I suffer from cold hands and carpel tunnel syndrome, I wear them all the time. I can still type and even crochet while wearing them. So, I’ve made some more to sell and I hope to get a little more adventurous with my patterns in the future.

My Etsy Shop

I really don’t expect any sales yet, but I will keep adding to my shop until I start selling things. I have a huge stash of wool to get through. What do you think I should sell in my shop? Do you have an Etsy shop, I’m always looking for new ones?
