Not sure if this is the correct place to post, but I’m thinking of setting up a knitting shop on Etsy as I love knitting little animals etc and people tell me I could make good money from them. I’ve been suffering with a serious health condition for a couple of years and it’s now got so bad that I’ve had to leave university and will be leaving my part time job soon as I work for an agency and they won’t allow me more than 6 weeks off to have the major surgery I need. I know I’ll never make money to live on from knitting but a little extra to help would be nice, especially as I’ll be spending more time at home now!
Has anyone got any tips for selling knitted pieces? I feel like I’ll make all this stuff and no one will ever buy it, or the money I make will be so little that it’s not even worth it. What can I do to get my work recognised on places like Etsy? Is there any legal stuff I should know about? What about pricing etc? Sorry for all the questions, you can tell I’m very naiive but I guess I’ve got to start somewhere!
Thank you in advance, advice will be very appreciated.
