Getting to know other sellers

Stacey and I have been so tied up with working on our shop we have not taken time out to get to know other Etsy sellers. I love how kind the Etsy community is, everyone is willing to help. I was initially a little skeptical about reaching out to other sellers with questions because I was unsure of the reaction that I would get. Will they ignore me? will they think I am trying to steal their tips or business from their shop? Soon after reading through the Etsy forums I immediately realized that everyone was there to help one another. It rally made me want to hang out in the forums more, to make friends, and find cool stuff!

I would say about twice a month I find myself in the mall looking for something cool/different/unique to buy. WHAT? how ridiculous does that sound! If we spend more time getting to know sellers we will come across GREAT stuff, and support one another. Next time I want something, I will think twice about going to the mall, I will check out Etsy first. I want to support as many people as I can, and having a shopping problem should make that very easy!
