Update on Etsy sale in London

JanF | Posted in General Discussion on

Well kate and I went and done it!
For kate who is hellbent on networking(I call it talking to everyone)it was a good place to be seen. However – as per usual for these sort of things – it was not well advertised at all and I thought the venue was c..p!
After saying that it was cheap venue!
I sold some stuff – as did kate, and we got some commissions too – but considering Pete treated us to a weekend in the London Hilto(docklands)it was not exactly good value for him!!for the effort.
Mind you it has also concentrated my mind into knowing what I want to specialise in making to sell. Although I like doing lots of different ideas – I need to stick to corsetry and incorporate my free machine ideas into them a little more.
watch this space – Kate has ideas of themed stuff for Halloween and special events (by the way – what sort of themes would be done for Thanksgiving events? I have got the idea for “Founding Fathers” corsets(Don’t ask for details yet – I haven’t got that far)but am unsure how specialised I would have to be.
Anyway – still positive about Etsy – albeit with the proviso that they need to be more pro-active in selling to people not already etsy workers themselves. Anyway – I’m off to do a little more work – weather is fantastic for once – so that makes getting down to work even harder – we have had so little lovely weather so far this year!

    I agree. 

    In my limited exposure to the esty web-site, I found it highly directed toward other craftsmen and women. 

    Somehow they need to aim for a more mercantile presentation.  Gail

      I think ur right here. I think they are trying to solve this issue in various little ways - but it is 1 way to sell ur stuff and a fairly new way too - I'm hoping they will dvelop it further.
