Typewriter Key Initial Ring from nataliesnest.etsy.com

These are replicas of typewriter keys, turned into rings. The ring is silver plated and adjustable (fits most sizes). The top of the ring has a layer of resin to protect the surface and give it a more realistic look.

1-Why did you choose to sell on Etsy/ and do you sell anywhere else?
I chose to sell on Etsy because:
1)it is pretty much the cheapest way to have an online business
2)it is very organized and easy to use (I love to be organized!)
3)the environment- I have had so many great experiences with fellow Etsy sellers and buyers. People on Etsy truly love to be there!

The only other place I sell my things are at local craft shows/markets.

2- What is your fave thing to buy on Etsy (whether it be supplies or gifts etc.)
I have bought supplies and I have found some great unique hand made gifts for friends. But my favorite things to buy (and just browse for hours) are the vintage items. I am a sucker for vintage stuff-especially from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

3-What is your current fave product/SELLER(not in your store) under 20$?
That is REALLY hard to scale it down!! But I have to say I have been impressed by a product I bought for my husband back on Father's Day. It was a
shaving soap cube and face lotion set from ShopRedLeaf. The cube has lasted so long and it smells great!

4- Any advice for new sellers?
A few things I have learned over the last year since opening my shop have been:
1)come up with a logo and have consistent themes within your shop and product packaging-your products will stand out and you will look put together
2)list and re-list items frequently (several times a week if not daily)-this is the best way people will see your stuff-otherwise you keep getting pushed back on all the search lists
3)Take good pictures of your items! I am convinced that when I can't sell an item it is directly related to the quality of the pictures and how it is presented in my ad
4)Create stuff you love-don't just try to make things you think people will like. If you love it, there will surely be someone else out there that does too! It took me a few months to find my niche and I changed my direction from when I first got on Etsy and I am much happier now.

5-And a favorite quote?
"Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans."-John Lennon
