Hello Etsy {Five Resources for New Etsy Sellers}

Finally! The new MissVintageBoutique is finally up and running! Here's a little sneak peek of what's in the shop NOW...

Now that I {kinda} have a good rhythm for listing new items, I though I'd share a few of my FAVORITE Etsy business resources that helped me take my dream and turn it into a reality.

At the VERY, very TOP of my list is Wonder Thinking. This site is all about building your creative business and offers excellent business planning and strategy content. There's all kinds of etsy business building goodies featured...including a FREE 5 Step Etsy Shop Tune-Up and a FREE ebook download of The Wonder Thinking Business Plan-o-rama {LOVE!}

Everything Etsy is a resource-filled site lead by the amazing & creative founder, Kim. Everything Etsy features a little bit of everything Etsy related...my favorite {and most visited} is all of the information about how to be a successful Etsy seller. As a newbie, even the basics can be a bit overwhelming...Everything Etsy will help now and even later as you become more familiar with the business.

On the Dot Creations is by far one of my favorite new Etsy resources! This site has an amazing Handmade Biz Tips Library, a FREE 7-day writing course on writing irresistible product descriptions, and a FREE Secrets of Savvy Etsy Sellers e-book. If I were to ever have a blog crush...this site would be it!

Great pictures! I'll be the first to admit, I am NOT a professional photographer. In fact, 99% of my pictures are taken with my iPhone. I use Picnik to get all of my pictures Etsy-ready. Oh, did I mention that Picnik is user friendly AND free?

Handmade Success is another quality site offering a ton of resources for new and seasoned Etsy sellers. On the site you a "blog" filled with guest posts featuring all-things-Etsy articles, free Etsy e-books, and the Complete Etsy Kit {$19.95 & currently on my wish list!}

Read all about it! Here is a great list of current books about selling on Etsy. I own this one and it's been a great resource to refer to when I've had questions along the way.

So there you have it...I'd love to hear about your go-to resources. What/who am I missing?  Any tips you've learned along the way? Please share...
