This is how we packaged our most recent jewellery sale
in an envelope made from a page of a 1970s childrens' annual, tied with wool.
We got the envelope from our friends over at Renaissance who have two blogs
Renaissance Little Green Book and Renaissance Vintage Notebook, we think they'll be opening a www shop soon

Imagine my delight when I found this in my Etsy Converstions box this morning:

Hello! I just wanted to let you know that I featured you on my blog: Have a great weekend, Angie

And I was even more delighted when I popped over to Angie's blog and saw the fabulous post she has written on our shop Gladys Gladrags Wardrobe

Angie has her own Etsy shop with some delightful scarflettes (amongst other things) for sale, I especially like this one, now if I had a little girl it would be in my shopping cart in a trice. There's stuff for adults too so why not take a look?

Photographic Angst

We all know that photographs sell, after all what else have customers got to go on?

Unfortunately these photographs just aren't very good, they don't do justice to the clothing.

The lighting is awful, as is the background.

It's been casung me a lot of angst.

But the other day I listed the above skirt anyway and guess what?

It's sold within a couple of days or so.

The moral?

Well obviously we need to get the best photographs possible but maybe it's better to get stock in the shop, even with a less than perfect photograph, than to sit around wondering how to improve the photographs and not offer the items for sale.
