empfire shoes

When I opened my Etsy store this summer, selling customised comic book shoes, I had no idea if it would be a success.

In fact, I said to myself if I had no sales by the end of August I would give up on the idea. Thankfully, someone bought a pair and that I got the ball rolling.

I don’t know how to judge success, but the fact that I’m making a profit and gaining great feedback feels like a success to me.

Today I’m going to talk about my tiny Etsy business. Think of it as a behind the scenes tour.

I’ve finally decided to open a little shop on Etsy. It’s called Empfire Shoes and, you guessed it, I’m selling shoes.

But not just any shoes. I’m making comic book style shoes that are custom made for your size and style.

I’ve been working on a little creative project recently. Comic book style shoes!

I got the idea from etsy.com where people took a plain pair of shoes and covered them with comic book panels. I’d always wanted a pair but I wasn’t prepared to pay the over the top prices that they’re sold for. I thought to myself “how hard can it be?” to make a pair of my own.
