I thought this day would never actually come, but I am happy to say that my new store is finally (yes finally) up and running! For now we are only able to accept payment by PayPal, but we should have the ability to accept credit cards in about a week or two. There has been quite a bit of drama associated with getting this all set up (hence the delayed opening), but I was finally able to get everything right back to where I wanted it to be.
I will add some more posts in the coming weeks explaining some of the trials and successes I had in starting the store, but I wanted to pop a post up here to let all of you know that I have finally done it! And the one thing I couldn’t be more proud of is the fact that I did all of it myself. I have a friend that has an online store and she pointed me in the right direction, but the actual mechanics of building the site, adding inventory, setting up payments options …. those I did all by myself. And let me tell you, it was not easy (though I will admit I may have made it harder on myself than I needed to).
You can visit my little corner of the web here:
I’d love to hear what you think of our product selection, navigation, visibility. Do you have suggestions for other products? We are still adding items we have in stock, but we are always looking for new items to add to our inventory as well.
If you visit my site and leave me a comment on this post letting me know what you think, you will be entered to win a Schnibbles pattern called Darcy:
A winner will be randomly picked from all eligible comments on May 1, 2011. Please be sure that you leave me a valid email so I can contact you if you win. If I do not hear from the winner within a week, a new winner will be picked.
I have also been working on a lot of quilts, and I even have a tutorial for you coming up. Be sure to keep an eye on this blog, as now that things are settled with my store, I plan on posting here much more often.
