Your first purchase on Etsy years ago…Is the shop still here?


No, the Seller is no longer active.

My first purchase was from GollyGeeBaby (in 2011):

I bought a set of fabric booties and a baby cap that had a brim.

The baby cap was brown fabric with an animal safari pattern on it.

They were lovely accessories!

But I’m not surprised that GollyGeeBaby is no longer selling on Etsy.

It’s very hard to attract, to get noticed by people browsing Etsy, and it’s very hard to get daily sales because of too many Sellers selling the same type of product in the same category on Etsy.

The pattern that I’ve observed from the Etsy forums and from my own experience as a Seller on Etsy is that Etsy WILL NOT become a full time, sustainable, day job to most sellers on Etsy.

So don’t buy the Etsy motto of “Quit Your Day Job”:

Emoji ceramic mug

It’s been since the start of December that I’ve posted in my blog 😛 .

Some of the images that I’ve been making for items, like mugs, have been Emojis 🙂 .

When emojis were first made and used in emails and in chat messengers (during the late 1990s), they were called Emoticons. There was a messenger system for computers called ICQ. I never used ICQ. And now it’s no longer in use!

I started using Emojis in my emails.

Anyway, here is one of the Emojis I made for a coffee mug.
