Etsy. I've only just registered and filled in the policies & bio, so don't go looking -- there's nothing listed yet!
Apart from sewing like crazy, I've been thinking about the concept of my new shop and how I'd like to present my wares. Along with the pajamas I introduced to you here I will be offering my popular sleep masks as well as cosmetic pouches. I figured they go together well...sort of like a shop for all things *bed, bath & beauty*!
Another thing that will need serious consideration is how to display the pajama set and bottoms, because I obviously can't/don't want to model all of the sizes. Hiring a professional model is beyond my budget, and unfortunately the model friends I knew from when I used to work in the fashion industry have since moved on, married, started a family. So, the only logical thing to do imho is buy a store mannequin within my budget. I've been asking around and searched the internet. One thing's for sure -- I do not want a faceless one, nor a bald one, much less a headless one! The hubby doesn't want a 'dumb' one, whatever that means, and we both don't want a scary one! You'd be amazed at the scary-looking mannequins out there! Haha. I welcome any suggestions or better ideas on how to display clothing (other than on a person). I'm really excited about this new venture, and I must say that I really like the look and feel of Etsy. Just so you know I do remember all your kind comments and suggestions from when I asked about Etsy last time. I'm also looking into joining teams and have earmarked the Etsy Germany Street Team!
Meanwhile I've sold two of my designer bags, and I will need to replenish soon. I do have two new bags in the making - a silk clutch and a handbag made from OOAK screen-printed fabric - can't wait to show you!
take care, until next time!
