Selling: Introduction to Etsy

Continuing on with the Proverbs 31 series today's theme is about selling. Although I am not in favor of a woman working outside of the home under the authority of a man or woman besides her husband, I am in favor of allowing her to pursue small amounts of income via. a small business or other pursuit that does not take away great amounts of time from her being a wife and mother in her household as these are of greater importance than pursuing financial matters.

-she sells fine linen
-delivers girdles unto the merchants (item that alters the body appearance under clothing)

At the current time, I am not selling or making small amounts of income in any way as we are currently settled at my husband's grandparent's home for another three weeks. However, I do have plans of building a small etsy business or other online business as soon as we have our own space and are more settled. Etsy is a great place to sell items for homestead crafters and artists because the item is listed for practically nothing and compensation and billing only comes after items are sold. You may sell anything from homemade soap to homemade jam and aprons to a ball of yarn made from your own homegrown wool.......Setting up a small store is free!

Here are the getting started rules:

Get started!
Sign up for free. To start selling on Etsy, you’ll first need to register for an Etsy account. To become a seller, you’ll need a credit card for verification purposes.
List your items. It costs 20 cents to list an item for four months. When your item sells, you’ll pay a 3.5% transaction fee. Read all about Etsy's fees for more information. Etsy makes it easy to pay your bill each month with a single click.
Have fun selling wonderful items!
