After doing some very long and hard thinking (and number crunching) i have made the decision to move my creations to just one online shop.
Since I have 2 shops,my etsy shop and my (now empty) lollishop I needed to think hard about which one to let go.
Very difficult decision, as any of you who have had to make this choice already know.
I love both Lollishops and Etsy.
Lolli has been so much fun and I have been so humbled to be amoung so many talented artists!
And to have been invited!
I will always remember how much work and time Sadie has put into this fabulous site! She is really a go-getter and a great artist and friend.
My enthusiasm has been 300%, but what it ends up boiling down to is~the economy.
Or rather, my non economy!
Financial economy and "time economy" run hand in hand, in the sense that it's better for me to have everything in one shop. That saves me money and time "running" back and forth...because I will be out in the regular job world soon also!
The other reason is that I want to expand what I create during this next year.As well as Cottage Style, I feel the need to try other ideas and mediums,and on Etsy I can do both and have several very different sections in one shop.
I will be moving my listings over to sweetina on etsy in the next fortnight as a start. My prices will be lower since i don't need to calculate shipping into the list price.
I will also still be happily blogging right here and posting photos on flickr!
And promise to remain your
