Over the last few weeks I have really thought about the pricing debate yet again. Last night I revisited out earlier conversations on the subject and checked out this link (thanks Dawn, very provocative) before taking experienced nuno felted Nancy Schwabe’s advice and looking into selling my felt on Artfire and Boticca. There is no doubt in my mind that actually seeing and handling the felt prior to buying is the ideal scenario but sometimes this is just not possible and selling over the internet seems an ideal way of broadening the net of potential purchasers. I have had some very nice feedback recently from purchasers of my merino and nuno felt scarves so know that they have been happy with the quality and price of my work but still the question remains, where is the best ‘virtual’ place to sell online if you do not have an ‘actual’ venue to stock in your locality?
Before I get too steamed up on the pricing issue I just want to alert those of you who haven’t already discovered it to a great new craft related social networking site appropriately named ‘My Craft Corner’. I discovered this by linking through a couple of blogs last night (really sorry but in my excitement I lost the original link) and it appears to combine the attractions and functionality of Ravelry, Flickr and Facebook all on one site, kind of ready made craft porn for all us addicts out there! If you do pop along and decide to join please be sure to make me one of your friends, my user name is Clasheen, what else!!
Getting back to selling online, I just added a gorgeous cobweb felt scarf and a couple of nuno shibori beauties to my Etsy store last Thursday.
