One Year On…

Today Purple Wyvern Jewels is officially 1 year old!

I’ve learnt a lot over the past year, and I’m sure this coming year will teach me a lot of new things too. Purple Wyvern Jewels has changed and grown over the past year, I started out with only making sterling silver and gemstone jewellery, but have added and expanded on that to now include a wider variety of items as I kept on trying out new items and new ideas. Initially, I also was only selling on Etsy, but over the past year have created my own website and tried out Folksy for a few months. (Although I’ve recently not renewed any items on Folksy as I just wasn’t getting the views). Plus having my items on the high street in my local Community Pop Up Shop.

I’m excited to see what this coming year brings, and how my business changes and grows over this next year.

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.
