The Shop: Friendly Promoting

Etsy Treasuries are a little addictive! I lucked into one today – they were having server issues, so LOTS of people lucked into them – that I got to set up with two favourites: Blue and Clay. You can see the treasury filled with all sorts of blue-toned clay items by clicking the piccie:

Of course, with all the extra treasuries floating about someone kindly put one of my Claychicks canes in theirs. Thanks Bam!

This week my Tooaquarius Etsy shop is also featured on Winklepots blog. Winkle makes some incredibly adorable handpainted lil’ kids wear. I told Chloe she needs to be 4 again but she disagrees with me. Luckily I know other little people now.

I have beads chugging along in the tumbler now, so we’ll have some fresh stuff on the sites this weekend and until then I’ve begun adding beads to the webstore here. These will likely be beads made as they’re ordered and will include my regular themes in my usual shapes: pillows, rounds and lentils in blues, sea garden, sunshine, black and white, coffee tones, sweetheart pink, lavender field, tangerine. I will also add the sets I have on hand that one of a kinds but these mostly find their way to Etsy first.

The Shop – Summer Moseying Along

Taking the cue from the majority of the other cane sellers on Etsy, I listed singles in the Claychicks shop this week:

And there’s sets of canes, of course:

In the Tooaquarius Shop there’s plenty of beads (and more going up today!):

And I am finally bringing my web store in line with my Etsy Shops to make life a little simpler on my record keeping. The prices will be similar across the board – though Etsy will be cheaper for sets picked by me, you can still get a ‘buy 5 get 1 free’ set of six on here – and sometimes, I think, my American friends will get a good deal when the Canadian buck swings low (as my site prices are in Canadian dollars).

Across the board shipping for canes and beads is now much more reasonable. I got the ins and outs of Canadian shipping explained to me and I am happy to be able to say: It STILL makes NO SENSE but I can now offer shipping at about the same prices as US sellers. Overseas shipping may need a little tweaking, be warned.

Claychicks Weekly – Not so Weekly

I thought the Canadian postal system was enemy enough but working as half of the Claychicks, I’ve had to learn to deal with the US one as well! Part of my shipment to Carolyn arrived so I listed part of it being that slightly obsessive keener that I am… 3 of my favourites from this boxful include:

Caro is working on getting her stock sorted out and into the Claychicks shop too. She’s planning out little grab bags of canes – good segments by weight but not in any particular size as right now her wrists are on light duty only. Not that there is such a thing as light duty with infant twins!
