Following on from the disappointing sales of the WI craft fair, I’ve finally got around to finishing the creation of my Etsy store. For those of you who don’t know, Etsy is an online community for selling craft and handmade items, rather like a virtual version of traditional craft fairs.
Making a shop on Etsy was something I had been planning to do in the likely event that I wouldn’t sell out all of my stock. So today I’ve been busy photographing all of my items in artistic ways – it’s so difficult to get things just at the right light and angle so they look as gorgeous on the internet as they do in real life. You have to think of ways to make up for the fact that buyers can’t touch them.
After endless trials with the camera and software that didn’t want to work, I got to the last stage of choosing the best ones, and uploading them – all ready to go. To have a look at my fantabulous creations and get your tactile senses tingling, go to Abigail’s Secrets on Etsy.
