Winter is around the corner in Australia. Etsy is an American handmade selling venue, and has gone international. I love the international connection. I live in Corpus Christi, TX. My hats would not sell here in Corpus Christi, TX. The weather here is a subtropical climate. The coldest temperature was 40ºF in the winter. It does not snow here, except Dec 25, 2004. The snow melted the same day. Etsy provides the opportunity to market all over the world.
My crochet hats are seasonal. They sell well here in the winter time. However, in the summertime, sales drop drastically. That is where Australia comes in. I have had buyers from there purchase my hats and scarves. it’s nice to know someone on the other side of the world let alone hemisphere.
