Shop & Swap



Hello Dearies.  I have been working hard on my etsy shop.  It is more work than I thought but I love it all!  I love searching for the perfect vintage piece, I love describing it in delightful detail, and I love capturing in a photo the uniqueness of each piece.  So really, I don't consider it work at all.  It's play.  Joyful blissful play.  There are more unique pieces going up in the shop today.  Be sure to check out these lovelies

On another note, I have always wanted to participate in a swap.  Have you ever swapped?  I see plenty of people blogging about their lovely little packages they give and receive in swaps and I have never been bold enough to enter.  However, I have decided to join in one.  Gracie from Gracie Bella Butterfly is hosting the "Just Because You're Lovely Swap".  Doesn't it sound just. . . lovely?  


So, three things:
1. Do you have an etsy and what is it? 
2. What do you like/ dislike about having an etsy?
3. What do you think about swapping?

Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY.

1. Yep, I have an etsy. Just started it last week, have been selling my stuff at flea markets & online for 8 months now, though.
http://www.etsy.com/shop/knottycraftkreations -- I make hemp & beaded jewelry.

2. Since I'm so new to it, I'm just getting used to things. I haven't sold anything yet, which is a downer, but my inventory isn't big right now because I'm in the flea market season at home.

3. I loooove swapping. I've probably done 5 so far, and only 2 have been disappointments. It's sad because I always put together a great package, and once I recieved nothing, the other time, I recieved ONE hairbow compared to a box full of goodies. Other than that it's been great!

Have a good day, darling!

Hi dear:) You are right, a lot of work! I do have an etsy shop, and I really love working on new ideas:) I design little girls and ladies accessories.

It can be a lot to keep up with taking photos, listing new items, keeping up with supplies, etc. BUT I wouldn't trade it for the world! It has given me the opportunity to be at home with my son!

Swapping sounds like fun! Let us know how yours goes!

I never participated into a swap from a blog, my first and only swap to get a package in swap-bot made me so sad that I never tried again. I am trusting now, I like to send pretty things and I hope to get pretty things too. :)

Samantha said...

I don't have an etsy - but yours sure looks great. I might wanna give a swap a try...but my schedule is out of control. That sounds so phony, but sadly it's true. If I do something I wanna be all in and not let anyone down :(

Best of luck with your shop, I just love it. I have popped in several times, you have such wonderful goodies :)

1) I have two Etsy shops:
* For my handmade clothing: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SizeMedium
* For my handmade accessories and trinkets: http://www.etsy.com/shop/onecraftyfox
* And I help my mom out with her shop just for the little ones: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BabyNook

2) What I like about Etsy is that it is very user friendly and shop owners have the freedom to be creative with their shops. What I dislike are some of the technical glitches and the fact that I have never ever seen any external advertising for the site.

3) I LOVE the idea of swapping and have joined Gracie's awesome swap. Such a fabulous idea!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Oh swaps are so fun! I sorta did one with Dolce Vita Micaela but I'm finding it hard here because I don't know where to shop!

I don't have an Etsy but you have a great store!

Gracie said...

So lovely!! Thank you for posting about my swap :) I promise it will be fun.

Your Etsy is great! I love that you take the time to have great photos.

1. I have an Etsy graciebellabutterfly.etsy.com but it's closed for the moment while I make more things...mainly mini notecards and things

2. I like Etsy because handmade goods are just wonderful. There is so much to look at and I always want to buy more things.

3. I love swapping. But the only downside is if your partner doesn't send anything or they don't put as much effort as you do.
