  1. Hi everyone!  I haven’t been around in a bit because I’ve been building my Etsy shop. But- I’ve reached a point where realize I could really use the input and combined miniatures wisdom of this community-  First, I have to say I love Etsy and especially miniatures shopping on Etsy- and it’s really kind of mind boggling when you realize  just how many miniatures makers and artisans there are all over the world! I know at least some of you must have experience as merchants on Etsy, either of miniatures supplies and/or handmade artisan miniature items,etc. and I’d love to hear your thoughts or experiences with any parts of the process! One thing I have come across is the huge amount of mass manufactured dollhouse miniatures available for very cheap. It’s hard to compete with those kinds of prices!  When setting out to make items for an Etsy shop, how do you decide what to make , and if it will sell?  How can you find a niche without overspecializing?   These are just some of the things that I have thought as I’ve gone through the early processes of setting up my shop.  Here’s the link if you want to check it out - all positive and constructive feedback is welcomed!!

    i painted the whole bed with a Dove Grey Milk Paint. It's got a "shabby chic" kinda feel. Will work good for now.   
  4. Hello everyone! My name is Gayla and my Member name is Tiny Favors. I am so excited to have found this wonderful community you have here! I am new to the miniature world but have always LOVED anything tiny!! So! Needless to say I had to have a love for miniatures! I have an online Etsy shop called Tiny Favors and I make and sell handmade bath and beauty products along with polymer clay charms and dollhouse miniature items I make. I only have one miniature item listed right now but have many new items in the works being made currently to hopefully be listed soon. I am actually thinking about making a second shop to separate the bath from the charms and miniatures and also I am wanting to list craft supplies as I have a TON of them lol. I am not a collector of miniatures myself but I enjoy making and selling the items though as it is so much fun to make tiny images of life size items! I look forward to chatting with all of you and seeing your miniature worlds and the things that you make! It is so nice to be able to talk to others that have the same interest as you do and to be able to learn you ways to do things that you may have not thought of otherwise. This seems like a great platform to make new friends and have fun! If anyone ever wants to chat or has questions about anything please feel free to message me anytime and I will respond as quickly as I can! Hope everyone is having a beautifully wonderful Mother's Day today! I am enjoying the nice warm weather and spending time with my 18 year old son when I can get him to come out of his room and off the computer or XBox 360 lol! Have a great day! Gayla -Tiny Favors
