I opened my shop in february this year. It took a while before I had the 1st sale. Also a lot of research and reading about how to do things, many makeovers of my shop and a LOT of advertisement.
For you that wants to open an Etsy-account: it's not done in 1 day. Biggest job is about how to get traffic and buyers to your shop.
Lots of new bling bling in my ETSY shop now!
