Hi,I,m Anne,I am a new Etsian as well.It is very difficult to access customers on etsy when new.Iam using the show cases when I can.However the first time I didnt sell a thing.Ihave spoken to Etsians from other countries and the market is very slow with the recession,at the moment.Lets hpoe things pick up before Christmas! I am trying to improve my marketing strategy to improve sales.I have also been approached by a new online gallery who wish to sell some of my work.I am also working on setting up my own website, This is in the very early stages and probably will take me and my web designer months to get it right.We have to do a lot of networking to get customers into our online shops.P.S.this is my first ever blog so accept my apologies for the geekiness!!!all the best,Anne at silverpuss.

what works for you?

Hi again-

As a new Etsian I was hoping to hear how other members of Team Cymru draw potential customers to their shop. I have used the showcase tool once before and it directed lots of people to my shop for that day but the flow soon tailed off. Do you guys use the showcase on a regular basis or use personal blogs etc to direct people to your shops?
Any thoughts welcome!

hello there!

Hi there-

I just thought I'd write and introduce myself. I am 29 and live in Cardiff. I have always been involved in art. Its mainly been from a personal satisfaction stance but I have recently joined etsy in a bid to share some of my art with the world!

I have dabbled in various media starting from pencil and pen and ink to painting and japanese sumi-e ink painting. My recent activity has been scherenschitte or papercutting. This is what I sell in my etsy shop. I love the simplicity of this media and the challege of creating atmosphere and depth with such a restrictive practise.

I also do a little sewing, knitting etc and have recently made my first quilt which was super hard but very satisfying in the end!

I'm excited to be part of a welsh etsy community as most of my friends don't craft/create at all and I'd love to have any thoughts and feedback on my work, I am always looking to improve!
I have added some of my stuff to the flickr group and my etsy shop is

Looking forward to meeting more of you on this blog.
