Shop Mama's Doodles
Due to listing one of my little princess skirts on Ebay and finding the reaction to be not so overwhelmingly successful (it's on its final day, and there are no bids, albeit a few "watchers") I've gone forth with opening an etsy shop to make my first attempt at selling handmade goods. I'm glad I didn't list all three skirts, or I'd be really depressed at the investment in each listing!
I love the idea of finding my niche in the art & craft world, and selling something that I enjoy making. It's hard for me to narrow my creations into what's "marketable" and what's not, but in light of ebay's fees, I like what Etsy offers. I have confidence in my ideas and I really enjoy making unique things. For me, however, a struggle lies in the lack of instant gratification. I.e.: It hurts my feelings that my little skirt went unwanted on Ebay. It's so stinking adorable!! I've made several of them as gifts for others and was TOTALLY cheerleaded on by friends to sell them SOMEWHERE. And, in comparison to what I've seen (less adorable skirts sell for) and I, myself, paid for one - it's a steal! I'm embarrassed to tell the cheerleaders, that their advice sucked. :)
My Etsy shop will be located on my sidebar, under "Shop Mama's Doodles." Hopefully, I'll be concocting some really adorable items to add for sale there.....
