My Etsy shops! So many ideas...not enough time in the day!

I wish I didn't have to sleep.....I'd be making things 24 hours a day! I had a long dry spell where I wasn't feeling very inspired and now I can't stop! I recently revamped my sweetvintageemma shop to feature my handmade wire wrapped dangle charms. It's taking off slowly and I'm happy with the sales so far. I've been having fun coming up with new designs and buying lots of supplies (the most fun)! I already have quite a collection of glass beads because of my accumulation of vintage costume jewelry over the last few years. Any jewelry that is broken or too damaged to sell has been going into several large plastic bins. Now I have a use for it all! I plan on selling small lots of broken pieces for jewelry designers to reuse in new designs.

My sister gave me a huge box of 1 inch wood blocks so I've been inspired to make some Paris inspired shelf sitters with them. I made a few for Halloween too! I'm thinking about revamping my vintagelife shop too so I can feature more home decor items that I'm dreaming up!

My emmasgems shop has been neglected lately. I need to retake most of the photos of the jewelry that is left in my shop. I think that is why much of it hasn't sold. I already lowered the prices on most of the shop if anyone wants to take a look! I will also offer free shipping to any blog reader. Just let me know when you check out and I will refund the shipping via PayPal. I will be adding fresh inventory soon so please keep checking in!

My vintagelife etsy shop has been reworked with a new banner and avatar. Featuring a much brighter and clean look! I've been working on my newest version of tile jewelry including custom photo pendants.

I've made lots of pieces using recycled vintage jewelry. See my Halloween jewelry below....I laughed the entire time I was making them! They're a bargain too....just reduced the price this morning. Check them out here!

I truly believe that you get out what you put into your etsy shops. I've also found that renewing DOES work. Constantly adding new product will almost always result in sales for me. My sales were at a standstill until I started renewing or adding new listings. But what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another. Just my personal observation.

I've gotta get back to work now. Hope you have a great day!
