Etsy shop??

Does anybody have one? What do you sell? and do you think it's worth it. I have some simple cute paintings/stencil paintings I made that I'm thinking about putting up for sale on there. Opinions?

I agree with those questions....been wondering what I could sell there, also.
What kind of stuff do you paint?
I make bath salts and am going to be getting back into my crafting very soon....need my own table to craft on...lol. Very hard to craft with my boyfriend taking over his desk at all hours. (He's a gamer/computer geek)

I sell yarn on etsy, but etsy has been doing some pretty crappy stuff lately and if there was a viable alternative I would jump ship.

One of their featured sellers was discovered to be a liar who had nothing to do with the making of "her" furniture and etsians were outraged. All etsy did was change her interview to make her look better and let her stay.

Here's my shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/FJCruiser

I love Etsy, but it hasn't done anything for me yet. Of course, I only have like three items listed and they are rather expensive, so I can't expect too much. I plan to add the betta fish decals I did to the vinyl section sometime. I also have a bunch of other stuff that I do that I've been meaning to put up and sell.

Its only like 20 cents per listing, so if you don't get any buyers, its not much of a loss, which I like. I just wish the listing stayed up forever.

I do like the fact that it's only $0.20 for a listing for 4 months.
I paint on small canvas usually, and mostly use stencils to make them pretty, when I get home, I'll try to post some pictures. I'm just not sure if they'd sell or not. I have fun doing it, and I love being creative with stuff, I just have a feeling it wouldn't be worth it. I guess it all depends on supply and demand.
