I don't intend to rip my shops apart. I love my shops. What I need to do is decide on a "theme" for each shop...then make things I enjoy making that people want to buy....and all will be well in the world.
Yesterday I took my daughter's marketing tip and I repriced every item in both of my shops. It was quite a task. She suggested I get away from the $5, $10, $15 prices and even the $6, $12, and $16 etc. She said to stay under that number that takes you into the next price "bracket" whenever possible. I will be interested to see if it makes any difference.
I thought about all of this a lot last night and I realized that the answers will all come in their own time if I just stop concerning myself with the past, and I stop questioning the future. I can't do anything about either one of them.
What I plan to do is to keep making aprons, start making totes, reusable lunch and snack bags and then continue to work on the other things I enjoy the most or that attract the most attention. That would be my cake stands, the light switch covers, and I have some ideas for some really cute pillows.
I can only control this very moment in time, so at this very moment, I am going to go finish a really cute apron I started!
Chat with you soon and thanks again...you are all so awesome!
