Last year I got the brilliant idea to make fabric banners or buntings as they are called in the UK, to sell at our local farmers and craft market in the summer. I also opened an Etsy store so that I could have them for sale all year long. You can take a look at my shop at Banners Abloom. My daughter has had 2 stores on Etsy for a couple of years and she graciously helped me with setting up mine. She sells paper crafted items such as greeting cards, garlands and cupcake toppers and she has shipped her creations all around the world! That's the nice thing about Etsy, the whole world is your customer! Kraft and Natural is her one store and Justyn Leigh Designs is her other shop, just in case you want to take a quick peek!
I am in the process of trying to photograph and list all of the banners that I have created so far. It is harder and certainly more time consuming than I thought it would be, but I'm sure that is just because it's a new process for me. The more times I do it the easier it will get, right?
Then I have to start creating more items! That is my favorite part...creating!! I have lots of plans and ideas for new "products" and will share them as soon as they are made!
If you have any ideas or suggestions feel free to let me know about them in the comments section!
