I don’t know about all of you who sell on e-bay, but I am having a heck of a time. After going strong since 1999, my sales on that site have just tanked! It’s really sad and upsetting to me. I can’t figure out if it’s the site, my work, or people are discovering an abundance of other avenues to shop from. Thus. . . I’ve decided to concentrate on Etsy http://BerryLane.etsy.com (which I love) and my own website http://BerryLane.com.
My store on e-bay will slowly be liquidating and although I may maintain a presence selling there for certain items, I will no longer have a store. Sadly, I just can’t justify the cost.
On a brighter note, although I am sad, I’m looking forward to really concentrating on only two avenues. It will free up more of my time to network with other small business owners on Flickr & etsy and leave me with more time for family (which I REALLY need!).
If anyone else has any thoughts on e-bay or direction or any business advice, please leave me a comment or e-mail me. I’m always interested in your thoughts. Here’s a little of what I listed on my web site today. OOOOH, I almost forgot – everything is 20% off at my web store. Have a great week – XOXO Wendy
