Welp, since 2013 came to a close I think it’s fair to take this one of the list. The end of the year saw me temporarily relocating to England which meant a temporary hold on Etsy sales. Even so, I managed to sell a few person-to-person both in the US (before I left) and while over here. Plus, I was able to use some as Christmas presents which saved me a bundle of £/$. I think it’s safe to say that I definitely hit my 30 mark even if it wasn’t solely on Etsy. 3 months ago
