Did you know I had an alter-ego? There are little hints hidden around the site, which reveal more about my other ‘secret' activities. The observant among you might have already noticed that I don't just sew. I also run Summer ScentSations – making bath and body products. And if I suspend modesty for just a minute…I'm pretty damn good at it.
My Etsy shop does very well, and I also have a lot of offline sales, local retail sales, features on daily deals sites and wholesale accounts – both locally and international. You might say that I am an Etsy success story. So much so, that I no longer have a ‘proper' job, I work at home, part-time hours and make my living selling my handmade products. And I have fun doing it.
But it wasn't always like that – I've had 5 Etsy shops, and have made plenty of mistakes along the way before I became successful. I learned a lot along the way – what to do, and most importantly – what NOT to do to drive visitors away before they have the chance to become customers.

I've developed a small range of Make It Yourself Tutorials, and some Make It Yourself Kits which have been enormously successful. Feedback tells me that there are a lot of people out there who have an interest in selling on Etsy and other online shops like Artfire and IndieMade. And I get quite a few follow up questions from these tutorials about selling, how to promote, packaging questions and how I get my customers.
So I wrote a book to help Etsy sellers – although it applies equally to other online stores too. If you are thinking of selling anything on Etsy or Artfire, or already have a shop that struggles to attract sales, then this book IS FOR YOU !
