I haven’t really talked about this on here, but at the beginning of the year I decided to start trying to sell my knitting. I had been thinking about it for a bit and was looking into what all I needed to do to start. So, at the beginning of the year, I bit the bullet and sent everything into the state. I got my sales tax license a week later. I set up my shop on Etsy and started a page on Facebook. Yesterday, Brown’s Novel Knits went live.
I published my Facebook page on Wednesday and had 24 likes before I officially opened for business. And yesterday, I got 26 views on my Etsy shop, but no sales yet. I don’t have a lot of items up yet, just a few hats & bibs. Working on some more things and hoping I can get more of a variety. I’m not expecting to make a lot of money from this, but hopefully enough to supplement our income. Plus, it will give me somewhere to send my projects instead of having them sitting around the house(and my kids can only wear so many hats).
Hoping I make my first sale soon. But, I’m going to try to remain patient(not an easy task for me) and keep the knitting needles moving until I do(well, and after).
