Welcome to my new website!

Updated: Mar 24, 2020

I have been so hesitant to create my own website, that I have been putting it off for quite a while. At first, I didn't think I had enough to sell to have my own website. Starting off, I would list my things on one of the many online marketplace sites, and I have been successful that way. However, there are so many people and listings on these types of sites, that things get swallowed up real easily.

Next, I moved on to craft fairs. Just small local ones to start. This really helped me a lot to realize not just what people like, but what I like to make and sell, as well. I not only grew my skill and abilities, but I also grew my business, as well. There is a wealth of knowledge out there, not just online, but with all the other small business/vendors out there. I value the time I spent with those few craft fairs a year that I attended.

Then, I discovered conventions. There was a local convention that I decided I was going to gear up to attend and have a vendor booth at. I spent over a year making things and learning more about attending conventions vs craft fairs, and I was hooked. My very first con was at a local library, just for one day. That one day, I had more than double the sales that I normally would do at a craft fair. I finally discovered my place!

This was just 1 year ago. Since then, I have attended quite a few different cons around the state, and have started looking to a few out of state, as well. Unfortunately, with the health crisis going on right now, my out-of-state cons have been postponed, for now. I already have about 10-12 cons planned for this year, and can't wait for things to pick back up.

Now, back to the website. I have a friend starting out with their own small business, as well, and she started with her own website, and may branch out to craft fairs later. After talking with her a little and seeing her website and how awesome it looked, I got to thinking of what it would take to setup my own. Once those gears start going in earnest in my brain, there is very little I can do to stop it, so I definitely had to look into it.

It was so easy to get started, that I had a bunch already setup for the site before I even knew it. By that time, I just kept going, and here we are! I don't know what kept holding me back for so long, but I am glad I have my own site, now. It was so much easier than I expected.

I plan to keep updating and adding stock to the store, so please check back often, as I have quite a bit left that hasn't been listed, yet. There should be more every day!

Thank you for stopping by!

Things have been going very well with the business! This is, of course, in addition to the sheer explosive number of cons and events that I have done and still plan to do through the end of the year.
