what do you want to know?

i can't do a post without a photo
so i had to include this one.
it is one of my all time favorites.

now with that out of the way
it has been a while since i asked you, my readers,
if you have any questions about starting an etsy shop,
or selling on etsy, or about my experiences 
selling on etsy for the last 1 1/2 years,
or anything else etsy related for that matter.

you can email me directly or put your questions in the comments
and i will answer your questions as best i can.

it has been a wild and fun ride and i am excited
to start another year.

i just had my 2300th sale so i have some experience at this thing called etsy,
so ask away.

note~  and some of you have your blog comments set up so i can't reply
by email so if you aren't sure please leave your email address
in your comment.  thanks.

if you want to take a peek at 
what's new visit anythinggoeshere.etsy.

note~  junkstufftreaures, you will have to give me
an email address to reply to.


  1. seem to be wildly successful at this etsy thing...I can't seem to make it take off...lookers but not takers...what one thing (ok, maybe two or three...)that you did to be successful with your site?
    amy of four corners design

  2. YES! This is the year Joan!
    I'm all ears!

  3. Hey Joan, I’m on board with you maybe doing a post on how you are so successful? DO you do do people find you...what’s your secret because you are so doing something right...that would be awesome...I could use some help...I love Etsy!

  4. You are so generous to offer to help others be successful!! I am unsure about even starting on etsy but would like to know the basic things to do to just get started.

  5. Joan, you have the most interesting finds! I have two questions: 1) is it difficult to make an Etsy store banner (I have a Mac which might complicate it)? And, do you have a lot of international sales? Is that difficult? Thanks so much for sharing your expertise!

  6. Yes, I have a question! I'm thinking about starting a blog to help promote my etsy store, how on earth do I get people to find and follow it?



  7. Hi Joan,
    Congrats on your etsy success! The one thing that I have always admired about your blog and your etsy shop are your photos. Nobody showcases their items like you do. I like the "instant" collections you sell and your prices are very reasonable! It's no wonder you have 2300 sales!! Here's to 2300 more.

  8. Hi Joan,
    A job well done! Jane is right...your photos are so very alluring.
    Hope 2012 will be a healthy and prosperous year for you!

  9. I too am wondering if you do International sales...I did but it was a little too time consuming so I stopped. Also, what other venues are you using to promote? ie: Facebook,twitter,treasuries etc...
    I love your etsy, sometimes I just stop by to admire your little collections! Thanks for sharing! karen....


I love to read your comments.
