Here are some recent etsy goodies that have caught my eye and have given me the urge to *add to cart*.
I haven't had much time for browsing of late, but my cyber shopping trolley has been pretty empty lately, so I felt it needed a work out.
After seeing Sandra Eterovic's artwork on the Design Files, I would have loved to buy the original- "20 tiny acrylic paintings of curious and endearing objects from chickens to cars and oranges to road maps that have been put together like a patchwork ", but for now the greeting card print will have to do.
I was alerted to the cute porcelain work of Kitty Genius by Maddi Stamer on her blog Little Birdsville. Now "Rudy" hangs in my studio where I can admire him every day.What have been your experiences of etsy? Have you struck gold, or made enough for your business to be self sufficient? I've had some good scores over the years, but some duds too.
Things not arriving, goods not actually being what they said they were.
My etsy shop just struggles along like a tired chook, and I've got very close to shutting it down many times. But hey, I guess it's just another way to circulate your work in the swirling vortex of online shopping!
