A new shop!

The start of another year and always ever hopeful and full of excitement to see what it will bring.

For a variety of reasons which I have yet to fathom my shops on Etsy, Artfire, Art Gallery have been very quiet.  Often visitors to the shops look at the paintings but that is as far as it goes.  So, why not stretch to another shop?  I can hear you say, 'Another!! What on earth are you thinking?'  Well, ever the optimist I thought that by throwing some more bread on the waters I might get noticed more!

So, whilst trawling around Twitter.com I noticed someone mentioned an online shop called Silkfair.com.  In for a penny, in for a pound and I have now opened another shop, now at http://onawhimsey.silkfair.com

One thing I have noticed is that you can import your listings from Ebay and Etsy!  Then all you have to do is check them to make sure you are happy, alter anything in the descriptions etc and make them live.  Nothing could be easier!  All is fair in love and war, I believe the saying goes.  Well, looks like it to me!  So, we shall see what happens.  I have only one item listed so far but will be adding to my inventory pretty soon.

I called this Crocus and it is an ACEO, an original in encaustic art, beeswax!

I was considering another expansion also. Are you putting up the same images in each shop or are you increasing your available inventory? Working in originals as opposed to reproductions I assumes you are in the studio more. How do you divide your time between the marketing & production?
