I have decided to close my Etsy shop. Etsy has become greedy over the years and their site is no longer all about quality handmade items. They are now allowing sellers to come on to the site and sell cheap items that are made in China. Some sellers are taking the extra step to remove the “made in China” tag before sending the item out to unsuspecting customers but very often, that is not the case.
There are also issues with their analytics as far as shop items being visible on their main page. I am in a highly competative area on selling sites and I am not visible without constantly renewing my listings at $.20 each. I do not have that kind of money, so my sales on their site do not justify the cost of keeping my shop open.
So, now you can shop from my website and support my business directly!
Thank you for being here! I will get my “Shop” tab set up as soon as I can, so look for a new blog post announcing my Grand Opening Sale!
