Congratulations! Bet it feels good to be free! Hope it works out well for you ♥

Elena said...

Good for you!
I see more and more people making this move. I think once you're established it makes more sense. I have my own website, but am considering Etsy for more exposure, with an eventual move to Big Cartel.

Best of luck! :)

Good on you! :) I'm about 2 seconds away from leaving Etsy too. Those fees are ridiculous.

Sara said...

Hmm..I was going to start an online shop with Etsy. D0o their fees get out of control or something--thought they were inexpensive? So how did you start this new shop? Was it free? Any info helps!

Jen of ReannaLily Designs said...

Yep, I keep my etsy shop for the search-able exposure... that's about it. Congrats on your new shop!

Stacey said...

super awesome!! I had a new shop there a while ago, but just listed two patterns last night. hope all is well with you and the family :O)

Karen said...

CONGRATULATIONS, Rachel!!

Anna @ Fresh Dew Drops said...

Congratulations! Looks great. One little thing, could you give the finished dimensions of your patterns? Good luck.

Anina said...

Congratulations Rachel. Freeing, isn't it?

Jenn said...

I have a shop there as well, but i've never sold a single thing. Not even an inquiry in over a year. I had one sale that cancelled and they're still trying to collect a fee on that. I left it there for exposure but all my orders come straight off my blog.

Good for you. I adore your designs. :D

Congratulations on breaking free from Etsy!!!! Wishing you lots of luck.....I know you'll do great! :-)

Good luck. I love etsy and order from them all the time. It's my main place to find homemade things.

I think the fees are reasonable and it's super easy to set up shop and keep it going. But that's just me. Good luck with your new spot!

Congratulations with your new shop! Your blog gives me lots of ideas and inspiration, and I 'm sure your shop has the same effect! Good luck!

Yay Rachel! Been thinkin along the same lines. Etsy fees are killing me. Add Pay Pal in there and wham! For little ol me, it's not fun. Just haven't had the guts to do it. Congrats!ooxx`jod

I keep thinking that I'm going to be an Etsy sensation, but, sadly, I've only sold one item. It's okay - at least that's what my therapist tells me.

Congrats! A good idéa!

Desi said...

I am with you girl! I just got my own website and am building it and when all my etsy things are gone, I am pretty sure that will be it! the fees are a tad bit poohie! :) and congrats and I know it will indeed do well!

I with you the best of your new home shop :).

I totally miss reading your blog. I was following for a while but lost the link during my blog move. I'm back now and glad that you're still going strong :).
