Back to Etsy

Busy restocking my online shop on Etsy recently.  

Although I hadn't actually 'closed' the shop, I put it on a back burner for a few months this year.   When you read and watch other artists online, they go on about having your own website, so in the end I gave in and opened one.  I listed a lot of paintings, then added them to the usual social media sites, Instagram/Twitter/Facebook groups etc etc, but the response was so slow and in the end decided to close it.    

Hence, now I am restocking my Etsy shop and adding some new works.  I have a few in the studio at the moment that are waiting to dry - Oil paintings take time to dry and I won't rush adding them online if they aren't ready to send out.  

and I will keep you up to date here on the blog about latest works being added

I think you're wise to go back to Etsy, as the saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix it. You seemed to do well on Etsy.

I think online selling is part 'magic'....and you seem to have mastered it! :D

Eileen....Thanks, I agree with that. Glad I gave the website a go though, I would have always had that niggle in the back of my mind that I should have given it a go.

Robin....well, I try at least.
