Well, I made my second sale today, on Etsy that is. I've sold plenty of pieces at markets but somehow, an Etsy sale seems a lot more significant. Of course by posting this, I've just Murphy's Law'ed myself out of ever making a sale again :).
I think every new Etsian's dream is to wake in the morning and find your inbox full of Etsy transaction notifications. I'm happy just to have one at the moment.
It's amazing how something so small can have such a huge impact on a person's confidence and esteem.
