    Hello BHW,

    I was wondering if Etsy is worth the effort and if would be a profitable business. Also, Etsy is all about handmade stuff. Do you guys have ideas for products which are easy to make to sell on Etsy? Is it just possible to outsource the making of the products to some manufacturer and mark it as "handmade"? Thanks in advance.

    Why don't you see what other sellers are selling and decide if you could do it yourself ? I think thats your easiest answer.

    I am friends with a girl that makes decent money selling items that she perles herself that look like other items. I can't post links but here is a pic from her shop. These are her Pixel Hairbows. If you go on tumblr you'll find all kinds of different niches to cater to that will eat up your custom handmade items. HTH :)

    Def worth the time and energy. But you really have to know trends and make items that sell well with the holiday season.
