Trying to decide
I'm trying to come to a decision as to whether I should stick with selling on Folksy or not. It seems like just when I think it's really not the best place to sell because I haven't had a sale in weeks I go and sell something new. I'd made this decision a few weeks ago and was slowly letting the shop run down. As things expired I wasn't renewing them so the stock levels were gradually going down. But this week I sold a lovely ticking cushion that I'd actually been starting to think I might keep for myself. It was a good sale so now I'm wondering again.
At the moment and probably until next Spring, I don't have a lot of time for making many new items, but I do have a long term plan to keep my little business going and hopefully do more. So I feel I need to keep an on line presence with my items but the answer is where?
Do I stick with Folksy? Do I try Etsy again as I still have a shop there? Do I open up a little shop here attached to the blog or do I sell via my Facebook page as so many people seem to do? I just can't decide. Despite the fact I can't make many new things, I do still have a lot of stock here that I would love to sell. These three are just a few of the pretty things available that are no longer in the Folksy shop.
I love to hear anyone's thoughts on this. Do you sell on Folksy or Etsy? Which one works best for you?
I'm sure I'll come to a decision soon enough. I'll let you know when I do.
See you soon.
