I started an Etsy store about a year ago as a paid hobby :)
The strongest sellers have been large Scrabble tiles but when my stock ran out, I resorted to selling smaller 6X6 inch tiles. And I cannot say business has slowed down too much. This is what our dining table has looked like for the past couple of days.
This was the largest order I have had. It is for the Lucas family. With smaller tiles (at a cheaper price) I think that people are more comfortable ordering large amounts.
This was ordered on the same day...obviously as a mothers day gift.
Her mom just started a scrapbook supply business and works from home. Her father just converted a garage into her office and these are for her new office.
I think what I love most is hearing stories about where the pieces are going. They have gone into nurserys, game rooms, offices, first apartments, dorms, and even a wedding. I ran across this picture on Pinterest and recognized these tiles.
They were professionally photographed for an online wedding magazine called StyleMePretty.

Needless to say, I am so happy with the success of this hobby. Sometimes I wish I had more time to devote to it but for now, it is doing well.
The small tiles are selling for $8 if you buy three or more so visit My Etsy Store!
