So I received my first order from my Etsy shop and while I thought I would create jewelry for humans, I was commissioned to bead a dog collar. I found this request a bit perculiar at first, but then I realized that this could be a new venture, the collar is turning out beautifully (sample picture below) and although I do not own a dog, I know that there is a market for animals featuring blingy goods :-). So with this new project, I am now offering custmized beaded dog/cat collars in my Etsy store.
I will upload the finished product by Wednesday, September 27, 2012
I am now think about a beaded dog leash as well, for the stylish, always fabulous customer.
I am so pleased to announce that after months of planning, I finally opened my Etsy shop. While I still have plenty more inventory to upload, I figured I would start now because I have been procrastinating for so long. While I was totally apprehensive, I was so pleased to see a request for a customized piece one day later, so now I am working on a beaded dog collar for my very first customer (SO EXCITED).
As I am working on this piece it hit me, why not offer beaded dog collars in my storr as well, so I will be featuring this option once I am finished with the collar I am creating now. Pictures will be uploaded of the completed collar) What a joy to have someone appreciate your talent and artistry.
If you are interested in on-line selling, I encourage you to do pleanty of research. There are far more forums, other than Etsy, that will allow you to sell your goods, I settled on Etsy because I have been a consumer for over 2 years and I really think that thier site is user freindly, well visited, and well known. Not to mention, Etsy also offers so much assistance to those who are interested in selling on thier site. They have forums and personal stories of those who have had success in selling.
