I opened my Etsy store on Friday night. I am super excited about this as well as very nervous!
I make cold pressed soap. I love making it so much that it sort of got out of hand. I actually never intended to sell the soaps. I selfishly wanted them all. But something happens when you begin soaping, YOU CAN'T STOP!!! You think of different ways to make them, as well as the many different oils you can use, not to mention the different fragrances.
I had to give most of them away, I couldn't possibly use that much soap on my own....
The feedback that I received about the soap is what got me thinking about an online store. Everyone that received the soap's loved them, and wanted to know if they could buy them also. I personally wasn't sure. So I just kept handing them out, wanting as much feedback as possible, before I did the whole store front thing.
So I am taking the plunge and selling them on Etsy. It is very scary for me to be doing this. It is such a personal project for me, I originally started because of my problem skin, that it terrifies me to have strangers want to use my products and be able to judge them, eek!!
Personally I think it is the best thing I have ever used on my skin. But hey I'm allowed to be biased right?
Wish me luck!
