  • Thanks, Kim...maybe I should take another look at Etsy but does it require a lot of upkeep and promotion?  I just don't know if I have the time but perhaps...

  • Hi Kim, welcome to AFI!  I checked out your Etsy Shop and you have beautiful jewelry...stunning.  Do you do well on Etsy?  I've tried it but I think there's just too much competition and haven't really had any luck.  In any event, we're happy to have you here, please take advantage of all that this site has to offer and continued success to you!
