What if you’re not a DIY person?

Don’t worry, there are still Etsy shop ideas for folks who aren’t into arts and crafts. One thing you can do is sell vintage items. Just hit up your local thrift shop and flip the cute items you find on Etsy.

Also, keep in mind that Etsy isn’t purely a B2C (business-to-consumer) marketplace. All those shop owners need materials to make their wares, so you might consider selling items in the craft supplies category. Fabric, buttons, and feathers are some of the items for sale. The weirdest item I’ve seen in the “Craft Supplies & Tools” section? Definitely dried preserved seahorses.


Congratulations, you made it to the end! I hope my list of Etsy shop ideas has given you some inspiration for your future shop. If you need even more ideas, a search for “DIY gifts” on Pinterest should do the trick.

And if you have your own shop or tutorial that you would like to me include as an example in this list, just let me know. In most cases I would be perfectly happy to do that.

Lastly, I’d like to hear what you think of these ideas. Did I miss any interesting or trending Etsy shop ideas? Let me know.

Good luck and happy selling!
