Noner's Needlework And More
Nona's Needlework And More
I opened Nona's Needlework at the urging of some of my friends who SWORE that my cross stitch items would sell really well there.
At first I wasn't having any luck, so I added some simple jewelry, and some of my "found poetry" collages as well.
Then people actually started buying my creations! It was such an uplifting feeling!
I changed the name of the place to Nona's Needlework (And More) to include my other crafting items.
Then I found myself doing less and less needlework, and more of other crafts. Jewelry espically. I knew it was time to change the name of my shop, but couldn't think of what to call it!
All photos (excluding images on any module links) on this lens were taken by Winona Morris or Robert Morris (her husband) ÃÂ©2011 to present
Noner's Needlework (and more) has changed since this lens was created.
While the web address remains the same, the name has changed to Simple Treasures
Times, they Keep Changing
As of June of 2013, Noner's Needlework (and more) has undergone another change.
The name of the shop was changed to "Simple Treasures."
This came about because of the shocking lack of Needlework in the shop.
Needlework takes time, and as the mother of a busy toddler working a (semi)full-time job, time is something I lacked a lot of.
A new lens, reflecting the new shop, is under construction.
What is Etsy?
Etsy was started with one simple missions...help artisans sell their lovingly handmade and hand crafted goods.
From the Etsy Website itself:
Etsy is the world's handmade marketplace.
Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.
Want to Sell Online
Here are a few books that might help you if you want to sell on Etsy, or any other marketplace really.
I own this book, and it is a TREASURE TROVE of good information. It doesn't just cover selling on etsy, or even just online, but many different venues of selling your handmade goods.
I've not read this one, but the "For Dummies" people are usually pretty full of good ideas.
I've not read this one, but its on "the list."
Ditto, I've not read this one, but its only list of books to read one day, maybe, if I ever have enough time.
More than one venue
Since the creation of Noner's Needlework (and more) I have found that there is more than one place to sell online.
In fact, there are countless places. And I don't mean just ebay!
Storeenvy is one option. Zibbet is another. Then there is blujay. And others!
