Let Loose The Balloons !!!! My First Etsy Sale

Yep we had our very first sell on Etsy yesterday and even though it was only a $10 sale it was very exciting to get that sale on another platform. Right now I only have 17 things in my Etsy store so selling anything was pretty amazing. I'm really getting into the non clothing vintage merchandise and plan on really expanding our Etsy store. I'm not saying that Etsy is better than eBay or the eBay is better than Etsy. They both have their positives and they both have their negatives. I will say I like them both pretty much equally.

What I sold was a vintage Mickey Mouse Goofy watch that didn't have a good battery in it so I did not know if it ran or not. I sold it as-is and someone bought it.  Anyway that one sale looks good on my Etsy store page so I'm happy about that. We had 12 things sell over the weekend on eBay so I have a lot of packing to do now. The only bad thing is we are now down to 466 listing. 2 steps forward and 3 steps back, grrrrr. No problem, I know what I have to do and I will.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Yahoo! That's a great start for a newbie. Some people open etsy stores and don't get a sale for months ...or ever, so congratulations! I think the more you get comfortable with it, the more you will like it. :-)
