1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Trinksy? on: October 16, 2014 10:13:08 PM
Thanks Adagia520 for your useful advice.

Chris,  I understand what you are saying and yes I have recently gone through esty.com and there is a lot of low quality products that's over price. Also there were some unique high quality products too.  An I know running a business small or large isn't like fishing. Running a business is more like hunting, but with a happy ending for me and the prey (customer).

Just so you guys know I spend 3-4hrs a day just promoting in person and online. Another 4-6hrs designing good and creating them with my small team.  I work on my baby (business) 7days a week.

Thanks again everyone. I have found a solution to my problem and it's not esty. Esty just isn't the place for me.  Cool

PS:
I don't like bragging about myself because everything my business is today is thanks to all the hard works and hours I put into it. So from now on I will leave this site to my hobby crafting only.

Thanks CraftyChef and  I already do my own promoting.I also have a pretty nice following size of clients. I'm just looking for a cheaper way to own a online storefront without having to build a site myself or go the ebay route.  I'm already linked to a few  mom and pop artisans stores, but lately people been asking if I have a website. Which I do but just setup as a kind of look book only. My goal is to run my business 24/7 and attract customers from all over the world. Thanks again for your advice.

Hello craftsters

           I was just wandering if anyone knew of this craft selling site called "Trinksy"?  If so is it better than Etsy? I'm working on lunching a online storefront for the holidays.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Stillatthetop thanks for sharing the info, but I didn't do any of that. I just did what I always do, paper, needle and thread, card stock, nothing fancy. Same way my granny use to do when she was alive. Only I don't make handmade paper like my granny, I have my own method for that too. I started blinding when I got into Zine/pocket manga making in middle school. Since winter break is coming up I might post some handmade paper sheets.  Smiley

I didnt use a pattern I made him up as I went along. It was very tricky because I had to try and create a plush I had never done before. I didnt use a pattern I made him as I went along, changing what I didnt like and keeping the parts I did. This went on for a week until I was happy with the end results.Then I packed him up for his new home. Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Fear of a Name Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Toting The Lion
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Completing this bag was a personal craft challenges for me. I didnt use a pattern, but I did use a ruler and my blinder for a guide for the size of  the bag. Its a doubled layered bag. Knit on the outside, crochet inside and on the front pocket with the Gryffindor lion on it.  The lion pattern I crocheted is from a chart I found on google thou. The hardest part of this bag was the knitted checkered back of the bag. I had to redo it twice because getting the measurement correct was the main problem. I have never done checks with knit before or doubled layers, nor tried to combine a bag with crochet and knit. Since I have over come my personal challenge, I feel good about taking my knitting to the next level now. Also can someone tell me if my project fits in knit or crochet since it is half & half?
