You know, I have only been on etsy for about 4 months, but I have been absorbing everything like a sponge. I sit in chat listening to what people want. I watch the forums constantly. I am obsessed.
Recently in the forums I have been seeing people post about lowering their prices. They have become unsure of their worth because they aren't getting alot of views or sales. I have to admit, I have gotten down a couple of times since opening my new store. I mean it is HARD! We all have to remind ourselves that this isn't ebay! You reap what you sow on etsy. Hard work pays off.
So please everyone, I beg you not to lower your prices. This isn't retail. You are one of a kind with a one of a kind mind, and one of a kind designs. (We hope!) If you are going to do anything, take time and retake your pictures, and renew your items. You should be making a profit, not just breaking even. Your time is worth more than that!
