Now you can Find Scultped Windows on Etsy too!!!!

I know I haven't been online much the last few weeks, but I've been hard at work-- creating and learning some new things. The newest being my etsy store!!! I am so excited to start listing on etsy. I'm a little lost, but a fast learner. I remember how overwhelming ebay was in the beginning... etsy isn't over whelming, it's just a bit different.

I've had my etsy store (sculptedwindows) open for almost a week and it has been fun. I have met many nice people, and the etsy community is so kind and supportive it's real neat. I must thank those that have given me a try on etsy, I appreciate your support, as I had zero etsy feedback.

Opening a shop on etsy is something I have considered for over a year and it finally felt right. It's funny, the day after I decided to try etsy, ebay sent an email announcing more increases in their store fees. Eaby has gotten pretty insane. I do NOT plan on leaving ebay, and I'm not going to rant and whine about the changes they are making. I just want to scale my ebay inventory back some. Carrying an inventory of 600-700+ items on ebay is getting tougher and tougher. I figure I could rent an actual shop in downtown Lancaster, PA for the fees ebay is charging. That's pretty nuts!

Aside from the high fees, ebay is not a very friendly place for artists and smaller sized shops. If you're not an "Anchor Store" or an auction style lister they have made it very tough... and they've made it clear they do not care one bit about me (or you). I was getting a little burnt out with ebay. Etsy is a much warmer, straight forward operation that really caters to artists and crafters. It is going to be a nice addition to my life, much healthier for the soul, I can already tell.

I have lots of goodies to list, mostly clay. I'm not sure why, but I have been into my clay for a few weeks. I'm getting the itch for my wire again, I can feel it coming on! There is a gem show this coming weekend in Philly, I know that will get me revved up to start wrapping again. Be sure to stop by Sculpted Windows on etsy and see some of my new designs!! More are on the way over the next few days!

  1. I have been admiring your faces several times today. Very unique pieces.

  2. Best of luck on your new adventure on Esty.

  3. I went to your etsy shop yesterday. The Goddess heart called me to take another look. I hearted it, just to be sure it didn't get misplaced. Too busy at work yesterday to order, as soon as I got home I clicked on etsy. The goddess heart was there, but sold. It looked strange because the price was there but I couldn't buy it. Mean time my friend Deb across the country in So. California sent me a email with an attachement showing what she had bought on Etsy. OMG!!!! my heart was in her list. I said OMG you bought my heart. She said I could have it, but I'll buy another. Welcome to Etsy...I saw something else I want too!! or two or three ~LOL~
