I think that a lot of us are familiar with Etsy in that we know that it is there and have a general idea of what it is. I’ve purchased scarves and a few other pre-made things that are ready to ship as soon as you’ve paid, but I avoided buying anything custom that would have to be made. I don’t know why, but it always made me slightly uneasy. However, that changes now! This post is my advice and experience with ordering from an Etsy shop, and hopefully it can help answer some questions!
