How To | Set up an Etsy Store

New Year, new resolutions? 

Last year my new years resolution was to turn my hobby into something more by selling my handmade makes on Etsy.
Etsy is an international market place for anyone to sell handmade, vintage or craft items. It allows your makes to be exposed to buyers interested in the beauty of handmade and provides support and tips via the Etsy blog. 

I opened my shop in April and although I was nervous at first I loved the thrill I got when my first item sold! A year on I am so glad I did it as not only does it give me a purpose and allows me to spend my spare time doing something I love, but it has grown my confidence and self belief too! If you are thinking about setting up an Etsy store, GO FOR IT! You have nothing to lose and honestly I think it was one of the best things I did last year. 

Here are my top tips & a step by step guide to setting up an Etsy store...
