I'm not sure how well Etsy will do, since they are vintage items and therefore priced higher than Ebay items, but I have already made my first sale there and Etsy charges less fees than Ebay, so it may be worth it in the end.
Time will tell, but having the extra income from Ebay has helped me a great deal the last six months, so I have plans to continue. In fact, my daughter has been selling things on Ebay as well and she is thrilled to be making some extra spending money.
Here is a picture of my egg cartons that I save. Did you know that there are things you are probably throwing away that you could sell on Ebay? Things like egg cartons, toilet paper tubes, paper towel tubes, and even empty inkjet cartridges? Just look at Ebay for these things and you will see for yourself. I've always saved my egg cartons and inkjet cartridges, but now I'm saving toilet paper and paper towel tubes as well.
Simply live by the rule of not spending money you don't have.
