There’s a New Handmade Market in Town!

If you are thinking about selling handmade or vintage, you might want to give Zibbet a look. And if you’re like me and sell on Etsy and have noticed that it seems to be over-saturated, just like eBay became, then you might be interested in trying something at an earlier level – before they get too big for their britches down the road.

I’m picky, but Zibbet impressed me enough this morning to sign up and the basic store is completely free of all fees eBay and Etsy would charge. And it was very simple process to set up, I’d say even a little easier to put a listing together than Etsy is. You do have to have a Paypal account though. 

The premium store package allows for unlimited listing and customization. You can try it free with promocode “FREETRIAL.”

Anway, if it helps anyone, especially right now with the holidays – pass the info link on: http://www.zibbet.com/AberrantCrochet/sell

Added content:  Hey – also, I found out they have a referral program.  If seven folks sign up for a store through my link, I can get a free premium account.  You can too!  I don’t know how long the referral offer is good for, so if you’re interested, get it done!

Thinking About Advertising with Craft Cult….

So I’m thinking about buying some advertising with www.CraftCult.com. Craft Cult has been a great service for Etsy shop owners. One of my Spider Web Umbrellas was chosen for a treasury created by Etsy and I wouldn’t have known it had happened if it hadn’t have been for Craft Cult, alerting me when I checked on my shop. It was also via Craft Cult when I found out my item had been chosen for a Halloween Costume Gift Guide as well.

Craft Cult is a fantastic service with great tools – all for free. If you have an Etsy store, do check them out. And me? I might just thank them by taking out an advertisement on their site. I’m also thinking I’ll likely benefit from it too.

However, I’ve never taken an ad out on someone else’s website before. Heck, I only just heard about something called Google Base, which I haven’t figured out how to really use just yet. Learning all this online marketing stuff is sometimes a bit overwhelming. All too often I’d rather just pay for a show since I prefer talking to folks one on one and do my usual demos and help folks out. After all, that’s what got me into all this in the first place.

Still, I enjoy learning and playing around with digital work on Adobe. In fact, I did a much better job than I expected with our old wedding photos and my grandmother’s damaged old farm photos too. And I’ve some particular ideas about things.

The CraftCult ad space has to be 100px X 150px. So I’ve been working up an image to help promote my Halloween items, since they have a short shelf-life each year. I’m using the Spider Web Umbrella photo as the background.

I haven’t tweaked it all out quite yet, but so far – what do you think?

Are You Ready for Fall…?? :D

This is my favorite time of the year. Maybe because my birthday is next month. Maybe because finally (finally!) we start to experience some relief from the heat here in Central Texas. Maybe it’s because the kids are back in school and there’s a sense of newness as our lives revolve around everything school related. Or maybe it’s because the holidays are right around the corner!

Halloween is the one time a year that adults are not only allowed but encouraged to be completely silly. I’m not a fan of gore, but I love the fun. And I have a thing for spiders and their all-natural and complex “fiber art.” Which is part of what got me into crocheting spider webs and replicating designs I’ve seen right in my own yard! I crochet custom spider webs, btw. Up to 15 feet in diameter.

So here’s some of what I’ve been working on, as I’ve been crafting over my bubbling cauldren all year preparing for my Fall 2009 line of ideas for crochet!
