Will I or will I not ?

For some time now I was thinking about opening an online shop. I was considering Etsy or Ebay at first and then maybe one day move to my own site. At the moment I have full time office job and I would love a change. I know it won't be easy and it will take lots of work and time with online shop, but I think it would give me a bit more time for the family. I have to sit down write a plan and see how it will go.


Thursday Two Questions So my two questions for you today are regarding online shopping: 1. Did you ever bought anything from Etsy shop or Ebay site? 2. If you use online shopping what do you buy, is it daily essential items, gifts for family and friends or hobby items for yourself?

Yes, I have bought from both places. I enjoy doing business in both sites.
I buy all kinds of items, some gifts for family, some essential products for home use.

Thanks for participating and linking today. Glad to see you're back on your blog.

I have purchased from Ebay..(faucet, appliance parts). There have been other on line purchases like books, exercise DVD's, supplements and that too. I've heard Etsy was expensive (an in-law of mine mentioned in regard to jewelry)? Maybe others would know more about that.
Anyhow, wishing you the best in your endeavor and a good weekend-

I've never purchased through ebay, though my children do so often. I buy books online through Amazon, and that's about it.

My sister-in-law's cousins have an Etsy shop selling hats and burp cloths and things like that, and it does really good.
Cool shot!

I do shop online, but not through etsy or e-Bay. Amazon is my most frequent online hot spot.

1) I shop online at both sites, and I used to have a shop at Etsy, but it's so time consuming with little returns that I just quit.

2) I buy all kinds of things, gifts, and small household things.

I don't shop online much --except for books. I did get my camera bag from an Etsy shop, though --and I love it! :)

I have bought from Ebay but not etsy. I do a lot of online shopping from stores like Amazon and Tiger Direct. Usually electronics, items for the house and gifts.

1. I've bought something online from Amazon and a few other sites but not Etsy or Ebay.

Oh yes!! I think once I bought something from Etsy and was so disappointed I cried. Earrings. Looked big and detailed on the site, when it arrived, it was like the size of a penny!

I usually buy something specific online, for example, that's where I got many options and deal in free shipping to get my sewing machine.

I hope you get to open your store!

Aloha!

I have bought from both Etsy and eBay and have bought all the above items. Online shopping is so wonderful when you have 2 small kids at home that do not enjoy shopping like you do. Go for it! Best of luck to you!!!

Nice, colorful shot. Good for you to pursue your own business. It's a major decision, so I wish you all the best.

Lovely shot of the pens. I am not a big shopper online but I hear many people are. If it is something I cannot get here I probably would. V

I've bought items on both shops, but I do have a store on ArtFire and made an online store too. It's fun and it will be a great idea. Btw, nice photo.

It takes a lot of time and effort to make a go of it, is what I know. You have to know the etsy system, constantly add new stuff, promote like crazy. You can make money, but it won't just roll in without you making it happen.
