@MrsBaldEagle:  Yes, I buy and sell antiques as a hobby that makes me a little extra money! Honestly, most of my sales are off of my instagram account and not my etsy account.  With Etsy you really have to work at marketing well, make pins of what you are selling on pinterest with popular key words so other people pin and repin and everyone can see what you are selling!!

@MrsBaldEagle:  Yes! I used to have a shop there that I kept up with, but I don’t do much with it anymore. You can message me if you need help with anything 🙂

@MrsBaldEagle:  It really just depends on how much time you have to put into it. You definitely have to put some hours in initially to make sales, and it’s normal to go a couple of months in the beginning before getting a first sale. But it really depends on the time you put into it. Twitter & Facebook help with advertising!

Yes! I sell jewelry on Etsy and it is pretty time consuming at first. Now, most of my time is spent shipping and maintaining inventory. I’ve been slacking on the marketing part but I get a consistent flow of sales now! 

So far, it has been my best hobby. I love it and it makes money! 🙂
