I finally decided to open an ETSY shop. I had no idea how much work it would be. Between all of the photographs, editing, uploading, describing and more I have spent countless hours attempting to complete the tasks necessary.
Please visit my ETSY shop and see what you think. I appreciate feedback.
I sold a four pieces at the gallery show, I received my check. The profits are split 50/50. I had art displayed for two years on going and sold none. Now I have boxes of beautiful framed art. It seemed logical to market it where I would get the full price. Mose of the pieces are small scale. Pricing is challenging because people equate size with value. The time invested is indeterminable. I have a formula for calculating the price and yet I still feel like I am giving my work away. I know what it costs to custom frame art as well. The buyer does not factor that cost in. At any rate, I am giving ETSY a try. I know others who have had success on ETSY and I respect the format.
