    Does anyone on here run a small time business, like selling things on Ebay/Etsy or anything else like that? What do you do? [​IMG]

    I sell on Etsy in 2 shops, I sell Tupperware and co-own a garden shop that is open in the spring. I own a gift shop and sell at craft fairs.

    I make handmade soaps. I do sell online, though not very much. I do much better when I do festivals and such.

    I sell vintage and antique items on etsy. Which reminds me, I need to get busy listing!

    I used to sell at art/craft festivals, all stained and etched glass, but DH is only off on the occasional weekend so I keep those open now.

    ETA: I used to sell on ebay a lot, but they have gotten so negative for sellers that I refuse to do business with them anymore.
