Etsy scares me because everything is so cute but so expensive!

It has cute things but I've only looked. I dreamed of the outfit my daughter will wear home so I'm looking for that. But some of the prices are ridiculous-- $40 for something that was sewn onto a onesie. But I do like the boy cardigan onesies so I might buy one of those.

Such as.............? I need links!!!!

I sell on Etsy and in the beginning they used to have a chat room for sellers and i cannot tell you HOW many times other sellers would PM me and harass and sometimes try to basically bully me into raising my prices. Claiming i wasn't charging for my time enough and that i was making it harder for the rest of them to sell. Sorry but if i bought a skein of yarn for $1.50 I'm not going to charge $60 for my item like you are. @_@

Charging for time is ok. But I saw this lady selling what was literally a onesie w/ like a lace garter sewn onto each leg opening, a matching lace headband, and an embroidered name on the chest for somewhere between $30-50, don't remember. I thought, "You've got to be kidding me." My mom sews (she made some really cute things for my niece a year or so ago) and I would ask her but she's already doing a lot by redecorating my place and planning my baby shower.

I looooove etsy. I have a feeling after baby arrives there will be lots of online shopping...and hoping since it will be the most wonderful time of the year to get some good deals and free shipping I love to shop online as it is....so if baby is a girl, this could get especially expensive.

I'm the opposite....I have glanced thru the site and was in total shock that people would actually pay those kinds of prices! I guess I'm cheap!

Nicole-do you find selling on there is easy? Hubby is getting on my case about the 2 dozen+ baby afghans just taking up space. But I like knitting while I watch tv, that way I don't feel so guilty for just sitting around.

I've had good success with it! If i had more time i would definitely do it more often but i am not the fastest knitter. Just make sure your pictures look nice in some decent lighting! I always go outside in the morning or on an overcast day.

I also have a small postal scale so i know exactly how much to charge for shipping but if you have a lot of the same item you can always go down to the post office and have them tell you.
