During the past few weeks, I have been working on building an Etsy shop to showcase the miniature needlepoint kits that I design. My main website has been up and running for 17 years now, but I thought it was about time that I expanded into the world of Etsy, so I have now set up my NEW Etsy shop, ‘Dollhouse Embroidery‘!
If you are not familiar with Etsy, it is a web portal similar to Ebay, selling craft items – both finished, and supplies. Some is hand-crafted by the seller; other stuff is mass-produced. So, it’s a great place to find all sorts of miniature items and supplies, and also embroidery kits and supplies. I have been meaning to open an Etsy shop for several years(!), but the ‘to-do’ list always got in the way.
Now, however, the shop is ready and open for business. At the moment, it has a large selection of the 200+ kits from my range on it, and we are working to put more items on every day. The are several reasons to look at the kits in the Etsy shop:
– There is the facility to save items you like to your ‘Favourites’ list, so you can use the Etsy system to compile your own wishlist of things you might want to buy later, to save you searching for items again at a later date. This facility isn’t possible yet on the main website.
– Etsy allows each product to have five different image views, so you can see each item as a close-up (stitched), in a doll’s house room-setting, as an ‘exploded kit’ (that is, with all the contents spread out clearly in one picture), the front of the packet, and the reverse of the packet, so that you can see exactly what you will receive once you purchase it.
– Every kit shown is in stock and ready to go, just like on the main website, and kit prices are the same as the main website.
Please ‘Favourite’ the shop and tell your friends about it!
I’d be very interested to hear any feedback from you about the new Etsy shop, so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments.
