My Etsy Shop~ anythinggoeshere By The Numbers

Several of my readers have asked how my Etsy Shop, anythinggoeshere, is going.

Here is it "by the numbers" for my first month of business:

Number of items I have listed for sale~ 220

Number of items sold~ 110

Number of people who have named me a favorite~ 94

Number of days it took until my first sale~ 1

Number of hours I have spent on the computer~ Countless


  1. what success, I wish I could say the same. I love doing my Etsy stuff! I get lots of hearts but only have 4 sales. I don't need the income, I just want the encouragement! It has been a dream come true! I am so happy for you! I think I spend more on Etsy then I make. Etsy is my favorite place to shop. I am surprized at how many people havn't been turned on to it yet! I do my best to promote it and all the wonderfull people selling on it!

  2. Those are amazing statistics! Your shop is dreamy. You photos are great. Good luck with continued success!

  3. Way-to-go Joan!!! Those numbers are fantastic... I'm inspired! Any thoughts about selling on EBAY??? Hugs- Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  4. Wow. I love to hear success stories. Way to go. Enjoy your day! Hugs

  5. Awesome! Glad it's going well, hope the success only gets sweeter :)

  6. I checked out your store - you have lots of wonderful things and your prices are very reasonable!!

  7. Yay. I love my porcelain tacks & Joan, I should have bought more. They're all gone, yes? It's an ongoing project (that hasn't really begun yet, so...).

    I'll go check out some of your commenters shops. Unfortunately, hearts are all some people (like self) can do lately due to the economy. But I do try to highlight other folks if it's something I've bought for myself or as a gift.

    Also, it really really helps (I think) to leave specific feedback on etsy. When I've recommended a shop (on my blogs now & again) or to friends & family, I got to that shop usually via good feedback. Or I decided between 2-4 shops on that basis.

    So be a good sport & if you're pleased with a purchase, leave feedback. I say that as a consumer, not an etsy shop owner.


  8. I think selling half of your product is outstanding. You've done really well. Good for you!

  9. I love this: "Number of hours I have spent at the computer: countless." Here! Here!

  10. wow..thats is success in my book 50% the first go round...awesome...

    I do my fair share there for the little I to sell..but man it is alot of work to get it there...

    good luck on continued sales..I am off to check it all out again..

  11. So glad your Etsy shop appears to be doing well. There are so many of the blogers doing that. There is not a thing you would want that you cannot find in an Etsy shop.

  12. Wonderoing if this might take the place of a show in my busy soccer Mom schedule? Thoughts?

  13. Congratulations, Joan!
    Your Etsy photos are so beautiful, love the props! No wonder you started selling on day 1. Thanks too for the inspiration...will be filling up my shop once the kids are back in school.


I love to read your comments.
