The story so far!


I now have two etsy shops set up.

One for selling vintage brooches

Camden Vintage

And one set up to sell my handmade jewellery

Lightboat





Pluses
I have had one of my vintage brooches featured in a treasury
One person has hearted the Lightboat shop
I set up a treasury on etsy that I was pleased with

Thoughts on Camden Vintage
I am yet to sell anything but I have only listed once for each shop so I have to keep that in mind!
I'm not sure if the vintage pieces will be worthwhile. I wonder if they are too expensive. They came from Camden Passage Market and are genuinely lovely pieces but I'm not sure if the demand is there. I am considering using the pieces to embellish hand knitted scarves or handmade bags so I've not given up! Plus, as I said, I've only listed once so I may try and relist to see if there is more interest.

Thoughts on lightboat
I have a real butterfly brain! My thoughts keep fluttering around. I keep getting loads of ideas and I don't concentrate on finishing something before moving on. I have some button jewellery that is nearly ready to be put into the shop but I'm not happy with the quality of the findings I've got. Until I source something that I am happy with, that looks good and is comfortable I really don't want to put them up for sale.

So. I've learnt that I need to make a note of my new ideas but I need to follow through on all my projects. Otherwise I end up with a lot of ideas and nothing to show for it!
