This has been a busy couple of weeks and on the 13th I “opened” the Open House Miniatures shop on Etsy.
I must pause to sing the praises of Etsy here – their site is easy to navigate, lovely to use and it makes your things look GOOD (even, if like me your photographs leave alot to be desired).
No sales yet though! – but with no history, no feedback and a great reluctance to mention the fact that I have been selling on eBay for a number of years (I feel strongly that Etsy is not a place to mention eBay!) this is hardly surprising.
I look forward to building up some stock – and improving my photographs – and am feeling rather excited about things generally.
One thing I do regret is the time it takes to take photographs, write descriptions and create listings – I could be using this time to make things!
So what have I been doing this week?
Well, as I typed that sentence my computer shut down and informed me it was infected with viruses and trojan horses and worms and goodness knows what else… (in truth, it wasn’t infected with all this, there was just a really annoying little bug that wanted make me to put my payment details in to a fake Microsoft page) so as well as everything else I have spent a very slow Sunday afternoon removing the partition on the C drive and then re installing EVERYTHING… where did the weekend go?
