We're on Etsy

Whew!  It's a pretty daunting task to find that starting point for an online store.  After a lot of careful deliberation and a brief foray into ecommerce software and online merchant service, we decided that Etsy would be the best place to set up shop.  Shopify and Bigcartel seem like the biggest players in the online shop hosting business, outside of Etsy, but they're just lone wolves in the internet sea.  Etsy is good because of the social networking you can do while also utilizing the space to show what you've got.

There are definitely pluses and minuses to all of it, between monthly fees, per listing fees, credit card fees, transaction fees - daunting is the operative word, indeed!  

Anyway, our first few items can be seen here.

In the mean time, I'm branching off from this idea...

...but it's going to be bigger and better.  I can't wait to get started on it.  But for now, I have a large project that was commissioned by another store in the village.  I'll let you know when it's up, so you can check it out.  Oh, and don't forget, the Wine Bottle Pendant class is this Saturday.  Sign up on line or stop in the store.
