Since re-opening my etsy shop at few weeks ago, I have had 2 sales. That may not sound like a lot but since I only posted 4 items, technically I sold 50% of my inventory in 2 weeks!! (I like the way the latter sounds better)
I realized after selling that I was not at all prepared to ship. All the materials that I used to use over a year ago, I no longer had. so I had to go buy them.
I hadn't bought the shipping materials before, it was just stuff that we had available in the house. I use. bubble wrap, packing tape, recycled cardboard, and craft paper. I was able to find it all and get the package out the door!
which reminds me of a popular discussion I would love feedback on.
"Do you care about the packaging when you buy from Etsy, or just that it arrives?"
if you are a fellow seller
"Is there anything special you do to make your packaging personalized and unique?"
I am considering ways of doing this, and will keep you posted on what I come up with as well.
