To Etsy or not to Etsy?

I'm still learning about blogging and am fascinated by all the "giveaways" that seem to be going on around me. (Maybe someone can explain them.) Is it just people with Etsy stores that do this? Do other people do this?

I have to admit, I've thought about opening my own Etsy store, but I don't know what much about it (and am not sure how to find that information). I used to have a booth at an antiques co-op, and I still have a lot of leftover stock. Maybe that would be a way to part with it -- and recover my investment. Hmm.

Maybe I should just have a garage sale. But that takes a LOT of work. (Like an Etsy store doesn't?) Sadly, I have no crafting talent, so I can't make things like some of the stuff I've seen. I was invited by Wanda to enter her latest giveaway and she had the most gorgeous stuffed pink strawberries. *Sigh*

The things I have aren't cute and sweet. BoxlotI'm a sucker for stuff like figurines--like these little guys. I bought them in a box lot just to get the little Bride & Groom (I collect brides and grooms--mostly wedding cake toppers). Now I'm stuck with these guys and need to find them a home.
