* What advice would you offer to new sellers?
Dont ever give up on yourself! If you arent selling or its just not working out,figure out why and do something about it! Be unique and find your niche. Make items that stand out. For instance if something sees something of yours,they should know you made it before seeing that you made it? know what I mean?
Take a camera class if you need better photos,they are the main thing that people have to go by before they buy something,so you really do need good item photos. Learn how to network and make friends with other shop owners.
