Thanks for all the great feedback on the Etsy v BigCartel post. I had my mind mostly made up about leaving Etsy before I even posted it, but I think the reassurances that I wasn't the only one having challenges cemented it for me. I'm happy to keep shopping with Etsy when I'm pointed directly to shops, but the time has come for me to stop selling there.
I've dipped my toe in the water over at BigCartel and the new shop is at shop.splityarn.com. Over the next few days I'll add an FAQ, payment and shipping details, but they'll be exactly what I had in the Etsy shop. If you run across something that needs tweaking, please let me know. And if you're handy with CSS, let me know that too! I'm hoping to change the look and feel of the shop a little more and would love someone to go to for coding advice.
I'll be listing pouches and some of the more popular SLR camera straps this week as I shuffle inventory between the two. I'm hoping that by next week I'll have some more straps made in some new fabrics that were delivered. The newest addition to the shop will be Point and Shoot-sized camera straps, but they'll be a week or two out yet. The best way to stay on top of the new products is to subscribe to the shop's RSS feed. So handy! (And with pictures! Take that Etsy RSS feeds.) The kicker is that you don't have to wait for me to blog about shop updates. Poifect!
