Isn't there a time limit on feedbacks? I've had several sales (at least 3) with no feedback. I've even reminded my buyers. How do you handle that?

Sometimes buyers don't know how to leave feedback, however there are some who don't know how important it is for us to have feedback. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do besides hoping that the next buyer will leave feedback.

I always leave feedback once I've posted the item, just as a way to remind me what date I sent the item. However, I remain in contact with the buyer until they safely receive the item and are satisfied with the product.

I was concerned about the shipping prices as well (particularly since it's such a small item but shipping is $9.30) but I was surprised when I actually had a sale from the United States. So it really depends on how much a buyer is willing to pay for the item.

In regards to where I sell, I've just recently started out on Etsy, but my first sale was on eBay. However, I don't rely on Etsy to bring the customers 'through the door'. Before I even started selling, I made sure to build up my name on deviantArt so when I did start selling, I already people following my work..though that doesn't guarantee sales ^^; so other advertising will be a must also.

With combined shipping, the way I work it out is to estimate how much additional weight each item will be and work it out from there. So for example, 1 item will cost $9.30 (up to 250g) then my next item will be an additional $6.00 because the next weight up (up to 500g) Australia Post charges is $15.30. Of course I also add a small fee on top of that for packaging materials.

I hope that helps Smiley Good luck on your venture!

Since I posted I looked around a bit more. While there are quite a few folks making the standard 5-6 petal flowers, very few folks are working at the size that you are. As a crocheter I know the smaller you go the more fussy it is to make something.

Best wishes and good luck in your new endeavor.

Thank you Cheesy

itscribe: Your comments and encouragements brought a smile to my face and really made my day, thank you Cheesy In regards to marketing myself specifically to weddings and special occasions, I've also been thinking the same thing. Where I live there isn't really any boutique lady's clothing stores so I need to work out how to go about targeting my market ^__^

Again, thanks for your input!

These are lovely! I especially like the purple one with the little petal strand thing (I know there is a name for it, just not sure what it is).

Thank you ^__^ I'm not sure what the strands are called officially but I just call them falls or dangles, since they aren't exactly wisteria falls nor willow falls XD

I am so glad you are back posting. I was looking at these last year and thinking of trying some of the tutorials, but as always, looking at your work is a level that I doubt I could achieve.

I think you should definitely give it a go Cheesy It just takes a bit of practice and you'll be at my level in no time Wink Thanks for commenting!
