Lately I've been debating if it's even worth it to stay on Etsy. After struggling all these years, the only shops that seem to do well are the ones that sell consumables like soap and incense, suppliers, and vintage shops. Artists rarely make the best sellers lists on Etsy. For time invested in listing items, taking photos, writing descriptions, and other associated hassles, I've seen very little return. Lots of compliments, but you can't pay the bills with compliments. And it's just such a burn out to put your work there and never see it sell.
