Selling Stuff

Well at long, long last "ethel and edna" are selling some goodies.  The Facebook page has proved to be a success - so far anyway.

To begin with it has been friends, who I see regularly but have never seen my wares, that have bought items but I am also getting interest via the other pages I have 'liked'.  I was a little unsure how to cope with the business side of things.  An online shop package is just too much of an outlay at the moment - in terms of cash and time to set it up.  So I've gone back to etsy.  The fees are cheaper than an eBay shop and now you can run your whole etsy set-up in your own currency.  etsy convert back to Dollars for their payments and so on, but UK sellers can choose to list all their stock, P&P, etc in Sterling.  MUCH easier to get my head round.

At the moment I've only got 2 items listed (THAT bit still takes a while to do no matter what currency you're working in) but I can do a custom listing for any item.  I have several photo albums on my Facebook and I'm adding more all the time.

I've now got commissions for 4 custom Silly dolls, 2 art dolls and a cushion.

So we'll see how it goes.
