Take a Leap???

I've been debating on opening a shop online, selling on etsy, and/or renting a booth at a local craft mall. Money is getting really tight on the home front, and I'm trying to think of ways to get some extra around here. Sure, it's going to cost me some money to get things started...but my issue is getting up the confidence that my creations will sell. My SIL has an EZ Shoppe and she sells stuff on there...I think she is doing alright with it, are you Mary? It's just hard for me to pay out money if I'm not going to make any or very little. I don't know if I will make enough money at the craft mall to even cover the monthly rent! I know I will have to get my rear in gear making things if I am going to do this...and this probably isn't the best time of year for me to do it with the way my work schedule is going to be. I don't have to make a decision yet, but I was wondering what you guys thought?

It is starting to pick up since I have my blog and Olde Prairie Register exposure. I told you list some stuff in my shop and sell from there. Just be sure to put your Tiffany's Primitive Place original on it!!!!

You can do it!!!!

Girl just sell your stuff on your sisters sight. FREE>>>>> need it say more.

Listing on Etsy is very little cost, thats a good place to start.

Oh and my friend has a on-line craft mall that she will give you a small free booth if you sign up with her.
