    I recently read an article in a mag.that a lady makes a living selling on Esty,she even went as far to say her husband quit his job and they earn a good living. She sold these prints for family trees.I know my sewing would never even keep the cat and 11 hens,so any ideas how this is done?

    My mother made enough sewing, after she retired from her real job, to earn a good living. She made lady's and girl's jumpers and sold them at craft fairs.

    I have just opened my first etsy page and before I am really done or caught up with what I am making I made a sale in less than a week! Definitely lit a fire under me. This time I am racking up on everything and listing all at once!

    It's exciting!

    I highly suggest becoming a member of the Business Topics. they can better help answer alot of questions.

    Here is the topic I started and had everything answered within the hour!
