February 2013 Update

It’s been a tad too long since I last updated, I must try to get back in to the habit of blogging more regularly.

Christmas Event

So to catch up from where I last left off, the Winter Fayre I attended at the end of November was a wonderful success, it was packed and was busy the entire time.

Christmas Sales

The Christmas buying season online, was better than I had expected. I even tried out Folksy in the run up to the Christmas season to see whether that would be another possible venue through which to sell. Although I did get one sale through Folksy, I was quite disappointed by the visitor stats, as they were very low and not what I had expected. Whilst I expected views to be lower than Etsy (as Etsy is more widely known worldwide) than Folksy, I didn’t expect a lower amount of views than my own web site obtains. So I’m not currently impressed with Folksy, although it’s a venue I will keep my eye on as it is targeted towards the UK market, whereas in comparison Etsy is very US targeted.

Community Pop Up Shop

The Community Pop Up Shop that I sell items through in Chelmsford town centre closed at the end of December. However, it has now reopened, yay! So my items have now been restocked there, plus it’s back in it’s original location.

Rain, sun, rain, sun, rain, sun… It’s been a typical British summer, so I’ve created a couple of treasuries that are perfect summer colours.

Tuesday Treasury – April Showers & Features

I’m still busily preparing for my “Pamper Party” event which is this Saturday. I have made quite a few new items, so any that don’t sell on Saturday will be added to my Purple Wyvern Jewels Etsy shop from next week onwards.

The weather definitely is living up to the term “April showers” recently, so this week’s treasury is all related to rain. I have also had items featured in two treasuries that I’ve included.
