Shop Update

Well, I’ve done about as much updating to my shop as I can stand right now! The main reason I opened my Etsy shop was to keep in contact with folks who see me at a local art fair and would like to purchase something from me at a later date. Of course, people who haven’t actually met me  in person are MORE the welcome to buy stuff as well 😉  but right now my life’s little balancing acts is teetering out of control. I can either spend days (literally) taking photos to post, or I can make more stuff to sell at the other shows I’m doing this Fall. Because every single thing I make is unique, each item needs several well taken photos before being posted. I’m putting a moritorium on photos, as of now! So, I did get my new notelets & notetakers listed, as well as relisting things that didn’t sell. I won’t post any of the new scarves that I’ve dyed though…not until the next 2 shows I’m doing are done…

Here’s a collage of the photos I took for just one listing:

Shots for notetaker

They are not even close to great photos, but I’m going to go crazy if I stare at a computer screen tweaking colors & brightness any more!!!! AAAHHH!

Well, I survived! I had a great time at the show, sold LOTS of hand dyed silk scarves – like 70! So many that after selling all day Saturday I went home & died 22 more that night – luckily the Sunday show doesn’t start til 11:30 AM – I was ironing scarves in my pjs til 11 AM! I actually was really worried about how stuff would sell in this economy, so I bought a less expensive blank (5mm habotai silk) to sell along with my more expensive scarves – this was a great idea, not only did some people gravitate to the scarf for the lower price, but it has a wonderful airy, flowy texture, so this one will remain in my repertoire!
I also sold all the grab n’gos and a few of the smaller bags, so again, the lower price point stuff was the attractive stuff. But, I was happy & exhausted at the end of it all! Phew!
On to the next!
