welcome to etsy

by T-session » Jun 10th 09 4:31 pm

Hi Cory,
I left you a convo at etsy, now you have your first. Also I "hearted" you. People will heart you when they see your work and want to go back and check your shop frequently. All they have to do is go to their favorites (up on top) and click on you. If you check "who hearts this shop" on the right column, you get a new screen with those people.
Now for how to post pics... go to "your etsy" up on top in blue and click it. Then your private etsy page comes up that only you see and can change things on. Over on the left side in the blue word column, click on add new item under heading ITEMS. It's pretty easy to follow from there, page by page. If you want advise on shipping, pic loading... just ask. Etsy is one thing I've gotten good at.
Looking forward to seeing your pics on etsy!
Best to you, Bill

OMG I love that one! Darn my teaware budget! :(

Cory, good luck with the new enterprise. I'm sure you are going to get a lot of interest in your work and probably a few shows out of this. IMO, you are in the elite class of potters producing teaware these days.
