After some thought and lots of doubts I have decided it is high time I opened a shop on Etsy. For those who don’t know – Etsy is a marketplace for handmade items.
Having been occasionally selling on eBay in the last year I have decided I’ve had enough of it. Perhaps, I was particularly unlucky, but I had SIX (!!) unpaid cases in the last year (two of them happened simultaneously just last week and are still pending). Those who bid and then don’t pay do not realize they hurt not only their own reputation (unpaid cases are always recorded on their account), but also, up to a point, a reputation of an innocent seller. Besides, if an item is not paid for, eBay would still charge a seller the final value of the item which is why unpaid cases have to be opened.
So, having had enough problems with buyers on eBay, I have returned to my account on Etsy which I opened a year ago but didn’t get around to fully explore. Now I will!
So, welcome to my shop on Etsy: Swish & Swirl. It is still pretty raw as I am still learning about Etsy and finding my way around. There aren’t many items there at the moment, and, in fact, all of them were made by Ariadne for our online shop in Singapore, but we needed to get it started. And I am working on my own items at the moment.
In a short while the shop will change its name as will this blog as I am currently in a process of re-branding. But it is still Daisy Dolls for the moment and I will definitely let everyone know once I have a new name!
