The news today is Didi Lou Cards has been launched on eBay today. For now it is just to sell some of the older card stock that has not been purchased via Etsy. eBay will give a much larger pool of potential buyers, so it does make sense to sell there as well. eBay still seems to be trying to work out how to list all the listing under the seller “didiloucards” so I won’t link it here for now. I still have a lot to learn to ensure the items get found, so I have started with just 3 cards for now to see how it goes.
It makes good business sense not to have all my eggs in one basket so to speak. I am working on another online sales outlet opportunity, but will keep that under my hat for now until it is finalised. I am also still exploring more craft fairs for the lead up to Christmas.
In the meantime I am sat at my desk working today, on what should be a summery day but in fact it looks dull and grey outside. The Christmas in July event on Etsy has been and gone. Summer is said to be slow on Etsy, so I am using the time to continue listing items that are sitting around in various stages of completion as well as working on new seasonal stock. I am itching to start this year’s Christmas stock, but today I have been painting bronze bats onto pumpkin shaped ceramic tealight holders in preparation for Halloween. I don’t plan to make much Halloween themed stock for Didi Lou Crafts as it isn’t a big holiday celebration here in the UK.
For now, above are pictures of some of the most recently listed items from the Christmas in July event on Etsy. They can be found on the Didi Lou Crafts Etsy store, but for ease they are divided into 2 sections: Christmas and Christmas CardsFollow Didi Lou Crafts
