Beautiful! Even better that you made the beads yourself!
22  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Re: Canadian Seller Shipping Fees on: January 07, 2009 06:33:33 AM
THis is an old post, so hopefully you've figured it out by now... but just in case anyone else is also looking for the answer... your best bet is to work *some* of the shipping into the price of your item. You can also explain how Canada Post works (of so different from USPS!) for items larger than 20mm - it may help justify a higher shipping cost on these particular items.

It's really crummy how difficult Canada Post makes it to be competetive with our shipping prices!

very pretty, i like pink ones the most. are they made of wood or plastic?

The pink & green ones are wood, but still very lightweight.

A LOT of people underprice. Many just don't know how to price, and many don't care - as long as they make their supply costs back and have a bit of fun.

It is frustrating, but it's always been an issue and always will be.  Undecided

The good thing is some people do care and want to learn - so at least we can help those folks get paid properly!

Of course buying from underpricers doesn't help the issue...
29  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Preparing to Open Shop at Etsy? on: March 09, 2008 11:44:08 AM
I already had my own website when I opened my etsy shop. If you're starting brand new I'd recommend having at least 5 - 10 items ready to go in your shop. An empty shop is a big turn off for many buyers. You don't have to list them all at once, but aim to get a bunch up in your first week.

It may take a while before you start selling, it could be instant but it may take a month or even longer. It depends on how much work you put in to getting your items seen and your name out there.

As for crochet items, there is a fun tool called "Pounce" in the etsy buy seciont that lets you see what has been recently sold. You can also browse by category to see what's available for sale - this might help you figure things out.

Good luck!  Smiley
30  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: considering a HUGE show - what am I getting in to? on: March 09, 2008 11:40:16 AM
How big is the show? How many people do they get through the doors? How many vendors? How long is it?

All of the above makes a big difference on how much inventory to take. And of course - what do you sell?

Will you have tables (handy for storing extra product underneath)? Vertical display racks?

I make jewelry and any show I've done I've taken enough inventory to always have a full looking display. Sure you may run out of one style, or one roduct - but you always want to have a good looking booth. Empty booths just aren't inviting.
