Goodbye Etsy

This week it’s been time for me to say goodbye to my Etsy shop. For those of you who don’t know Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade and vintage producers. It was great at the beginning because I learnt tons about the process of buying and selling. However as things have gone along I’ve found it a bit soulless. Maybe that’s just the nature of ecommerce. In the end I much prefer selling through local galleries. I feel I get useful feedback about my work and there’s a great sense of completion when I drop off some new pieces with them…rather than it sitting in a cupboard waiting to be picked out online. So, thank you Etsy for all I’ve learnt but it’s time to say goodbye.
