Yardseller.com is the BEST site out there for selling pretty much anything.
So I have had my Etsy.com/shops/Mrzjaquescrochetedit up and running for a little under 9 months now, and it is finally coming together. I am getting special order requests, and selling things overseas as well as all across the US and Canada, so to me in less than one year of being in business, that's a pretty big accomplishment . I found this new site called Yardseller.com and it works with Facebook really well so that when you list your items on there, they post to your facebook page and get you a ton of exposure thru there too. Just in the past month I have sold 5 items from that site. In the last 9 months, my total sales across all of the different sites I have tried is 19. For only doing this as a hobbie at first this has definitely become much more than that. I find myself dreaming of a new idea, and then getting up in the middle of the night sometimes just to start on it to see if it will work. My latest sale on Yardseller was one of my Spectacular Slouchy Mimosa Beanie. I have actually sold two of them from that site. It's truly amazing. I have had only one not so great experience, but I am making up for it. I received a special order for a black and purple Super Slouchy, so I made it like I normally do, however the first one I made came out SUPER Small, like child size. Different yarn does that sometimes. So I made another one a lot bigger, but when she got it, she said that it was still too small since she has dreads that need to fit in it. Me being who I am and completely customer oriented, I offered that if she sends the old one back I will make her a special one out of my favorite Lion Brand Homespun yarn and make it EXTRA SUPER SLOUCHY. I have a feeling this new one is going to be much more of what she was wanting. I want to make sure all my customers are COMPLETELY SATISFIED otherwise I will do whatever I can do fix it. Quality work is what I do. And I make no exceptions. I want you to love what you purchase from me, and be proud to tell your friends where you got it from. Person to person exposure is the best free advertising out there.
