ED Etsy

If I made an Etsy shop, would anyone make use of it? Or would it attract flies and tumbleweeds?

---

I often get spontaneous seemingly-brilliant ideas (the other night, I thought it would be amazing if I jumped on a plane to see TR in Alexander McQueen, smart boots with kid gloves, and fascinator ... we would hop on a trolly and elope at City Hall. This thought was quickly squished by TR, hmm).

Don't know exactly what I would sell. Beatiful, lovely things of course. Tasteful and discreet naturally. Maybe a mix of teas, jewelery, and motivational remembrances (it wouldn't be "pro ana" per say... but more pro support, pro recovery, pro inner/outer beauty, pro community, etc). I suppose, what I'm really asking, is what would you want to purchase?

Obviously, this venture wouldn't be for monetary purposes, and I would only hope to break even. Mainly I'm bored, and fidgety, and I think most things on the internet are hideous.

Cheers!
Savory

I think that's a great idea.
There's the red bracelets, of course. You could make varying versions of those to show "pro-ana" sentiment. Or for pro-recovery, have maybe a purple bracelet with a red heart charm and "IR" painted on it, for "In Recovery".

Also, you could go to craft shops. Buy small things like undecorated, tiny jewelry boxes or the like and put various images of thinspo (without the faces or something XD) and cut out words from magazines ("diet" "thin" "perfection", all the favorite key terms to the community).

Or when all else fails, doodle on some white canvas shoes. XD

That's an awesome idea - the etsy shop, I mean ♥ good luck!

I think it sounds like a fantastic idea. I like the sound of teas and jewelry :) But i especially like the sound of what pretty wreck suggusted about things that you yourself have made. Handmade stuff is the absolute best.

I love it. Having charming handmade items, made with care by someone who you feel you can connect with? That's awesome.

I bet there's a lot of creative crafts you could think of. Once you start creating, more ideas will come to you!

That sounds like a fantastic idea and I think the things PrettyWreck suggested sound fantastic. Also tea is always delish. :)
