I do some handmade pieces and retail jewelry

Hi. My name is patti and Irecently started a jewelry selling business of my own about 2 years ago. I had given up my job to come back to my hometown of Walton and tend to my ill sister.

I started out selling Avon for some extra income,and although we had no funds nor means to start out my sisters interest in what we were doing gave her a gift of enthusiasm and joy that I hadn’t seen in my sister for some time.

She had since passed away and with her inspiration on my side I managed to educate myself on the business end enough to open my business. As of yet I can not manage to rent a store so I have been attending any available local markets and recently started selling on line.

If anyone has any advise on possibly some good web sites that  I could sell my items and become more exposed without costing me much I would so appreciate it.

I love Rena and all her advise and this web page has been a guide for me along my way. Thank you so much

  1. You could try Listings are free, & they only take a small percentage of your sale price. The process is simple a& so far, I’m happy with them. Etsy is also great, & they have been around for quite a while. Listing fees & after-sale fees are very reasonable, though there is already a lot of jewelry for sale there. I have a couple of items listed on — also free to list. I really haven’t done much with that venue, so don’t really have any feedback. With any of the above, you’ll need a PayPal account, or something similar. Each site has clear information regarding payment options (Amazon, Google Wallet, etc.)

    Good luck with whatever you choose!

  2. I love Etsy, and it only costs 20 cents to list an item, and I think appx. 4% of the sale price. Take beautiful pictures of each piece, and join the SEO Team to learn how to get found in search engines. Your pieces are beautiful, anx I think if you highlight the properties of the stones, people would love that.

    Best of luck to you! 🙂

  3. I’m on Etsy and it works great. Tons of hits every day. Just a warning though, the jewelry market is saturated.
    Take great photos. Look at some on Etsy and you’ll see some good and some not so good. Accurate descriptions, tags and titles will get more hits as will having lots in your shop.
    Good luck!

  4. I sell on etsy as well and would definitely recommend it as a way to sell without having your own website. If you want to try a new site, go to, they charge a small fee to set up your storefront, then there are no charges for any sales you make! now that’s a good deal!

  5. What pretty pendants. Good luck with your business. You are an angel for taking care of your sister.
