stripes!

stripes!

stripes!

Dear friends, you were right. You told me to go with Etsy and now I come to you humbled in agreement - yes, Etsy seems the superior internet selling spot. I erroneously assumed that fees would be lower and that there was safety in numbers with Ebay but after reviewing my first week of sales Michael Bluth's voice echoed in my head confirming that I had indeed "made a huge mistake". Foolish me! And such an easy and avoidable mistake! Had I only taken the time to read on fees! Those darn fees! Anyways, enough of that business, I just wanted to share that bit of information with you should any of you be plotting their own online shop. I've put together a little collection of stripes (including those two stripey outfits above) that I plan to put in shop tomorrow (a new shop, called My Loved One as The Loved One is spoken for on etsy).

 Tomorrow I have a little surprise for you, sweet readers!

  16. I agree Etsy is the best! I think Sally Jane (of Sally Jane vintage) summed it up perfectly earlier this week.....

    I think Ebay is sort of like shopping at a big, messy mall where you are barraged with junk around every corner and it takes hours to find the good stuff while Etsy is more like shopping at a small flea market where the vendors are friendly and you find lots of handmade goods among the vintage treasures.

    That outfit is just darling, you have such a cute body!

  22. Happy to hear you're joining the etsy crew! Your shop was lovely on ebay; I am sure it will be even lovelier on etsy.

    Don't worry, you only made "a huge, tiny mistake" (a la Gob Bluth).

    And really, it is always best to experiment, fall down, and get up, before you settle on something, so you can be extra-sure you've made the right decision.

  23. I love the stripe collection, all the dolls sitting on that chair, and your bum! And hooray for etsy!

  24. i don't have experience on it, but i've heard a lot of etsy-ers switch to bigcartel.com which is has a monthly fee but doesn't take any commission off your sales
