If you have been keeping an eye on this website lately (and I wouldn't blame you if you hadn't, it wasn't much when it first started), you would have seen the item count in the store recently skyrocket the past few days.
First, I want to thank everyone who has visited and who will be visiting later. Getting the website up and running has been quite a lot of work, and there is so much more to do. I want to emphasize how important it will be to check back periodically! These past few days, my product numbers have doubled, and there is much more to come!
With everyone stuck at home right now, several of the conventions I have been planning to attend have either been cancelled or postponed. This is putting strain on not only the attendees and those running the conventions, but also on the vendors, as well! Because of this, there are virtual conventions and artist alleys popping up here and there on the internet. I decided to start looking into those as a way to promote the website and to show shoppers what I have!
Here is where the problems come into it. I did not have pictures or listings for most of my glass cabochon items! Those necklaces are among my best sellers at conventions, so I had to make up my mind, and work on getting pictures of everything so I can put it all up for sale on the website. That has been what I have been doing the most over this weekend. Not only have I had to take several hundred pictures, but then it takes more time to go through them all and get them cropped (I took some quick and dirty pictures, not taking my time at all).
The pictures I have have some bad glare spots and some show up a little fuzzy, and all I can do is apologize. I still have at least a couple hundred more to put up, too.
If you find something you are interested in and would like a better picture, please let me know! I would love to help with this!
In parting, I just want to say again, check back periodically! There are just over 200 items now, but many more to come! I also love taking custom orders, too, so please reach out if you are interested!
I do still have some chainmail and miscellaneous other items to post, too. Plus, there are new items being made while I am stuck at home. I am just thankful that my day job wasn't affected much with everything shutting down, so I do have that as a source of income while the conventions are on hold. Many others are not as lucky and are suffering. Please support small businesses and artists during this time, if you are able!
