jeanae/cherrylime: I love your banner...and the photos are so wonderful. I love the coasters in the flowers - very original
the robes look cozy too Grin

oddartist - I really like the leaf backgrounds - great idea. And the cd earring look much better over the sheet music - love the connection there.

I just started my shop a week ago so not everything has been posted yet. I've not had any sells yet. Check it out and let me know what I'm doing wrong. I know I'm not a great photographer but is my stuff that crappy or priced too high? Please tell me what I'm doing wrong

My baby is up and running. Its a lot of hard work to get nice pics and describe these items with enthusiasm but not too much enthusiasm. Please check mine out.

My concerns:
-Prices
-Fair shipping
-Policies (am I missing anything)
-descriptions

Any constructive comments are welcome.
Thanks!

Ok, I'm ready for a critique. 

Please let me know if the photos are ok because I have struggled with the photos for a long time.  Also if the description seem sufficient.  Please be honest. 

Im new to the whole etsy thing so anything that jumps out at you please let me know.

I like the idea of the reflective light bouncing off the wall, but having the clasp in the pic is distracting. Also, I was looking at the fuchsia pendant, but until I read the description (very nice descrip, btw), I thought it was reds and earthtones. Might want to tweak the colors in your photos.
I was told to shorten my shop announcement so you can see pics w/o scrolling, and I suggest you do the same. It really does make a diff.
Nice work, hope to see more of your work!

Hey guys, just finished sort of re-vamping my etsy shop with some new photos and stuff we finished this week.  What do you guys think of it over all?  The pictures?  The prices?  We're having a sale right now, so keep that in mind when judging the prices and such.  Advice?  Marketing secrets?

The clothing is awesome - and your guy model has lots of cool blowy hair! It looks very professional, and clothing looks very well made. Nice job.

Thanks Chef!  I remember one time you gave me pricing advice about a formula and such and I took it to heart, It works well for me now Smiley

I like the overall layout, the pictures and the pricing...It almost makes me want to dress up more...$21 for a tie is more than reasonable.

I would love a critique.   I've been in the process of trying to make my shop, my flickr, and my blog a lot more interesting places to browse and the going has been slow.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
