Shopkeeping and Blog Updates

I added several new necklaces to Etsy today. Here is one of them:

Shopkeeping

Shopkeeping, like housework, isn’t my best skillset. But I try. Here are some of the recent updates:

  • Updated the Shop Sections (upper left) of my Etsy Store to make organization and searching easier.
  • Added an About page to my shop. This is a more in-depth page about my art and process than the profile page. I need to add a couple more photos to the about page storyboard, but it is a start.
  • Added a “shop Etsy” app to my Facebook page. You can see it by clicking the  “shop” link (below the header image) if you are on the Facebook page, or via this direct link.

Here is a group photo of the new additions. Here is a quick look at what is in the shop now:

Newsletter and Email Updates

More details on the Subscribe page. In a nutshell, here are the updates:

To Receive Immediate Updates
I started the newsletter, called the Quick List, in 2004 or so. It was set up to notify subscribers of new eBay and Etsy offerings as soon as they were listed so people wouldn’t miss an auction or item.

Since I am now back to listing regularly and do not want to flood unsuspecting inboxes, I installed an email notifier. This will replace the original function of the Quick List. This list will notify you via email as soon as a post is made on this blog, including new items for sale. I average 1-3 posts a week.

To sign up: In the sidebar to the right, find “Subscribe to This Blog via Email” and follow the 2-part signup.

Another option: Facebook notifications. You can tell Facebook that you would like to be notified of the new posts I make on the Facebook page.

Here is how to set that up:

To Receive Occasional Updates
The main newsletter sign up (original Quick List) will still be active. It will be used for occasional updates and notifications of sales and special offers.

Thank you for your interest in my work.
