Please, do any Gransnetters have experience of selling items on Etsy? I thought it was just for handmade items but the site does say "vintage" items too.

I have dozens of beautiful silk, lace and crepe handkerchiefs from the 1930s and 1940s which I should love to sell and raise funds for a charity. Rather than try ebay, I thought maybe I would try etsy, but don't know anyone who uses it and am unsure if it would be too complicated for me.

I think it involves setting up an Etsy shop. I've thought about it for my handmade crochet items, but haven done anything about it yet.

I did try to sell baby shoes on Etsy quite a few years ago but they only allow you to sell handmade items/unique things - or vintage.
I am sure that your lovely handkerchiefs will be suitable products.
It is easy to set up and run and Etsy takes a small percentage of your selling price.
Good luck.
