I haven't set up my etsy shop yet, but I have a ton of extra embellishments and such that I would like to sell in addition to my handmade stuff. Do I need something special to sell them or will my regular business license work for that?

Supplies are fine. You will be able to categorize them as such when you list.

I thought Etsy was for selling handcrafted designs? I certainly don't go there to find manufactured product.

I've sold supplies on my etsy page before. They were leftover flowers I had punched and never used. I've seen other sellers list stamps before.

I buy supplies in Etsy.

I don't think you need any type of license to sell on Etsy.

See things that shine on Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube.

I just purchased some Websters Cameos (disc Christmas ones) on etsy because i couldn't find them anywhere! Fun place to just browse!

My only Etsy purchase (a few months ago) was get this... the magnetic stamp base set for the MM magnetic alphabets! Had several alphas that I bought from peas several years ago but very difficult to use without a base!

Yes, they do allow crafting supplies to be sold there.

Supplies are fine and you don't need anything to set up your shop

Thank you so much! Maybe getting that stuff up will motivate me to get my other stuff up! Now I just have to figure out the whole postage thing!

You don't need a business license to sell on Etsy
