Revamping my Etsy process.

In the interest of updating my Etsy shop and listings; I decided to go out on a limb recently. I rarely like to ask people for anything. I try and make everything about somebody else, (unless you talk to my immediate family, of course they may disagree). So I went against my natural gravitation and asked a friend for a favor, she agreed and I think the results thus far are turning out quite well.
This past weekend, I had the privilege of working with a beautiful friend to model my items. We had such a good time coming up with a general look, finding a location, and generally putting the whole thing together, and she was fantastic. I am pleased.
Therefore, starting today; I'll start uploading the photos we took to the existing listings, editing all of the descriptions, and making the entire operation more appealing to the eye. I figure this should take me a week or two to get through everything we photographed. (It was a long day). Then, until we can take more photos, I will be working on creating a larger inventory.
As far as inventory goes, I think I'm going to get back to basics with the things I create. Meaning; for satchels and bags, I'm going to start offering a line of basic colors that will possibly be made to order. A variety of blacks and browns to match any costume or outfit. Some Things that can be re-created depending on availability of the fabrics and materials. I'm also open to suggestion of what else I should make. I don't want to spend too much money to get started on new projects, at least until we figure out our move... Which gives me a great opportunity to siphon through my fabric stash and perhaps condense to a reasonable amount of excess. (Packing fabric is a thousand more times tedious than storing it in a stagnant location.)
I'll do my best to keep people updated on the progress! Perhaps I'll actually start sharing my project creation again. I did like doing that.

  1. One thing that people should realize about online trade is that it tends to be visual. So it is on point that you should be meticulous with how you present your product. The buyers won't have much information to initially go with than what they see in your page, so you really have to appeal to them in that manner. Anyway, good luck with your future endeavors!
