PostSubject: Season of nostalgia   Fri Oct 09, 2009 12:43 pm

My favorite time of year is here! Fall is in full swing around these parts - chilly nights, an explosion of color in the surrounding scenery, and pumpkins on the doorsteps. I don't know why, but fall always makes me look to all the good times of the past. Maybe that's why it's my favorite season, who knows?

In this season of reflection, I find myself missing the flea market shop. I really liked the Posse getting together to work on crafts, run the shop, and have some laughs. Although we didn't get rich off of the venture, I still feel like we had a lot of fun. I find myself hoping that maybe one day in the future, we could do it again.

I also find myself missing making stuff. Of all the things I tried, I liked making my jewelry and pendulums the most. I wonder how, or even if, I could go about marketing this stuff. ::Shrug:: I'm feeling moved to look into it, though. Anyone know a good place to get started?

Well hon..it's funny you mention all this..I was just thinking about the shop the other day....been thinking about it many times in the last month. I miss it too...
Of course, you're too far away..and Haggie..well...she seemed to just fall away.. I do believe it is her choice, so I will not bother her again. We did have fun working the shop and making things for it.....Haggies quilts were always prettty..And I always loved your little 'houses'..of which I still have one..Smile
Of course, fall is my fav time of year as well..I miss the fall colors, as SC surely doesn't have as much as I was used to growing up in VA. But we get some and I LOVE IT!!

Did you ever think about opening a 'blog' or an etsy shop for your jewelry..you can make one of a kinds..sell them as you make them..but surely not mass market, people dont' want mass market much anymore (Or at least what I see is a trend toward the 'uncommon', the 'handmade'...)
Ebay certainly seems to charge too much..but I think Etsy has a good deal Do some checkin..Smile
And GOOD LUCK!!

Honestly, I didn't even know such a thing was an option; I'll have to take a look at that. I had looked into eBay, but I wouldn't want to open up an eBay shop until I had established myself. I also looked into running my own online business, but that is some pretty hard work. If I ever did that, it would have to be the next step up from an eBay-like shop. I was thinking of hitting up local craft fairs - with a little research, I'm sure I could find some.

As far as the shop goes, I know I'm too far away to help you run it, but I certainly wouldn't mind making stuff for it if you ever did give it another go. Hopefully we'll be moving a bit closer in the next year, too!

Well, I took the plunge today. I am now a registered member of Etsy, and I opted to become a seller. I don't have any listings at the moment, nor have I put together a "look" for my shop, but it's there. Hopefully before next weekend, I'll have it all together and have at least one or two listings. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Well, my shop is set up. I still don't have any listings, but I'm hoping to remedy that by tomorrow or so. I have written out my shop policies and fleshed out my profile. The help tips at Etsy says finding what works for me as a seller usually takes some trial and error, but I think I have a pretty good start.

Just posted two more listings, a couple of signs I painted. I'm hoping they find good homes. My Halloween sign has already gotten 7 views! I know you gals are responsible for a couple of those, but at least people are looking! I also piddled around today and got a better looking shop banner up. The one I had before was kind of crap. This one looks a little more professional - thank you Photobucket!

Today I moved the folding tables into the loft so I could have a work area. I'm really excited about the whole shop prospect. Niel is on board with it; he's keeping his fingers crossed for me to have this as a real "work from home" job. It would be a real win-win for us.

It's kind of funny - I pulled a card for myself at New Years and it told me this would be a year for decisions. I wonder if this is what it had in mind?
