Over the past couple months, I've been tinkering with several online stores and marketplaces. After a year or so on Etsy and not getting any traffic (my fault for not listing and interacting much), I set up a place on Big Cartel only to discover Storenvy a couple days later. Storenvy combines the design capabilities of Big Cartel and the community aspect of Etsy absolutely free. I can list as many products as I like and post up to five pictures per listing. I love the way it looks! Of course I haven't made a single sale yet, but I'm convinced that will come in due time.
You might notice that the title includes something I haven't discussed before : PRINTS! I've been taking photographs of birds, bugs and foliage for several years now, and instead of just sharing them on the blog and with friends, I decided to put them to work for me. This fall, I'll be offering a line of Christmas cards featuring birds and scripture. For now, they are available as pre-order only, and I will be mailing out bulk orders starting November 1 or sooner if there are enough orders. I'm toying with selling individual cards as well. Slowly, I'll be adding other photographs of birds and bugs available for prints in various sizes, but for now there are six bugs.
Please give the store a visit. Be my very first customer! I'll also welcome any feedback or what you think I should offer. Thanks!
