Ahh, finally.  After a series of mistakes last week, all is going well in the studio world.

I have a new "Welcome Swallow" sleep gown in my shop, and a few new designs in the works that I'm excited about. 

So, yay!  In other news, I'm considering the merits/disadvantages of setting up an Etsy shop in addition to my Felt one.  Thoughts?  I'd really appreciate your wisdom and opinions.

ooooo those wee birds are super cute. I too have been wondering about an etsy shop. Let me know how it all goes. Kx

I am an Etsy user, and I love it.
I think it has a larger exposure which must be a merit though I have not done any other online shop myself so I cannot be 100% sure on the comparison.

I truly enjoy shipping my items all over the world; several NZ customers in the past :)
And, I have bought things from people all over mostly in US, but a few times from Japan.

How about Felt? From what I read, it is NZ based...

Hey Emiko! Yes, Felt is a NZ site. It's great because it's small enough to be navigable and have a really nice community feel to it. But on the other hand, it's certainly not as well known as Etsy -- even within the country. I think it will become more so, but as of now, most people I talk to haven't heard of it yet. My fear with Etsy is that it's SO big that it's very hard to get noticed without doing lots of work to get into treasuries, etc. I wish I had the time to do that stuff, but right now I just don't. I suppose I may just go for it -- nothing to lose, right? Maybe just get my shop up and list a few items and see how it goes. Thanks for your thoughts!
