After getting some feedback from my lovely fellow-sellers a while back, I’ve been pondering on what to do with my shop going forward. I want it to look more polished and professional without it looking too clinical. I’ve decided to reduce the number of different items I make and concentrate on just a few, and I’m re-taking photos of the ones that will remain to make the shop look a bit more coherent. Hopefully this will make it easier to view and easier for me to manage, and allow me more time to create fewer, higher quality items, with a bit more emphasis on the textile art.
All the smaller things will go, which is why I’ve reduced the prices of all my glasses cases, gadget cases, make up bags and purses - these will no longer feature in my shop. I’ll leave them there while I finish re-taking the photos and getting it all ready, but once the ‘new’ shop is good to go, they will all be removed and I’ll sell off any remaining ones at local fairs etc.
Anyone else had a similar change of direction or mid-life crisis in their shop? It would be interesting to hear how it turned out for you.
