Artfire Collections and Etsy Treasuries!

April 20, 2011 06:39 by ehouston

We are back from a much needed long weekend and visit with great friends and family.  Gosh we miss Nashville, TN!  Oh well.  But, on a very bright note, a couple of my shop items were featured at both Etsy and Artfire recently. 

This collection at Artfire.com was curated by Four Corners USA and it’s called, Made In America, Virginia!

Lovely.  Included here, are my Changing Pads with Pouch in reproduction vintage fabrics.

Over at Etsy, my funky neon Beach Ball was added to another funny treasury.

This one was curated by Lavinia’s Room and encourages all of us moms to get out of the kitchen and have a good time!

So, come on.  Get out there and add some comments or click on through and order something nice for yourself.

Etsy Treasury–Spring Is In The Air

February 5, 2011 07:58 by ehouston

One of my keepsake boxes was featured in a cute Etsy Treasury today!  The Treasury was curated by the team that runs Drapes of Wrath, a super cute retro-style apron shop.

All of these products are made by members of the Retro Handmade Team on Etsy.  And, although many of the items are delicate looking, they all scream for the sweet whisper of spring to come on already!

Please click on over to the Treasury and comment, or better yet purchase something for yourself. 

Punxsutawney Phil did say that we are going to have an early spring, so you better get ready now!

Etsy Treasury–Goodbye and Hello

February 1, 2011 02:11 by ehouston

It’s so cool to have another one of my vintage items featured in an Etsy Treasury.  This one was curated by the owners of the Etsy shop, Hodge Podge.  Mel and Becca have just started selling some cool paintings and have jumped right into creating great treasuries.

(The vintage blue brocade dress is from my shop.)

Please check out the Treasury, Goodbye and Hello, and leave a comment, or click through and make a purchase!

Shop Updates–Relisting and Vintage Fabric Items

January 21, 2011 06:34 by ehouston

Over the last week I have been changing some things around in a couple of my shops.  I had been reserving my Artfire.com shop for mostly vintage items with the occasional handmade piece and I was trying to keep all my handmade items in my Etsy.com shop.  I realized that over the course of the last year I had mixed things all up, so I decided to switch postings from one store to another.  I’m not sure that this will even matter, but I thought it was worth a try.  At one time I had listed doubles of some vintage Valentine’s Day cards in each shop and the Etsy.com postings sold very quickly.  I feel a little lost lately regarding what sells best at each location.  Has anyone else experimented this way before?  If you do have several different online entities do you find that the same customers check out each shop, or just stick with one or the other?  I don’t mind having more than one online store and I love that Artfire.com does not charge listing and selling fees.  I just don’t think I am ready to give up on either one quite yet.  Oh yeah, and here are a couple of new postings.  These are actually handmade items rather than the vintage fare that you have been seeing in more recent posts.
