What Can You Sell On Etsy?

According to Etsy House Rules, you can sell:

  • Handmade Items (stuff done by yourself or somebody in your company).
  • Craft Supplies, components, materials or tools that people may use to make their creations
  • Vintage Goods (20 years old or more).

Please make sure your items fall under one of these 3 categories before listing with Nembol.
