Should I Start an Etsy Shop?
I've been working on making my own patterns. I just haven't found the right patterns lately (as in, the past week). So, I made the coordinating mittens to the snowflake cable beret without a pattern. I think they turned out beautifully, and not so matchy-matchy that they look silly. Because they, and the hat, are made from high-end local alpaca, the hat is $75, and the mittens are $50. If purchased together, I will apply a 15% discount. I also made a chunky grey cowl out of acrylic yarn (soft and machine washable), which is $35 (also made without a pattern). I made a pair of short cabled, multi-coloured boot cuffs, which are also $35. I will post them in my shop soon, but I am debating just starting an Etsy shop. I would love to hear everyones feedback about which you would prefer: the shop as currently attached to my website, or a separate Etsy shop. Thanks for your feedback, and support!
