For anyone interested in internet selling…. here are 2 sites that might tempt those of you who have thought about it but weren’t sure about charges & the like.
A while ago I set up a ‘basic’ ARTFIRE shop – it has… No listing or final fees – the basic account has it’s limits but I think worth giving a try. [Edited August 2011: What a shame.. Artfire no longer supports basic accounts]
2 weeks ago I also set up a ‘basic’ ZIBBET shop – it also has no listing or final fees but again, being a basic account has it’s limits.
You can upgrade these accounts at any time to take full advantage of all the benefits they offer…. but for me, the basic is enough for the moment – I just want to see how it goes – if you have a moment, go & have a browse you may be pleasantly surprised….
I have been wracking my brain for ages trying to come up with something different – a smallish item that is practical but still stylish & good to look at – I came up with this little Carry Safe – Freeform Crochet camera/phone case – it’s lined with a strong, dark grey commercial felt to withstand the hard knocks – the brain-wracking has been worth the effort, even if I do say so myself
I was so excited when I checked my mail this morning to find that the Freeform bag ‘Carnival’ was sold to a lovely French lady – it’s such a fun bag & I’m sure she’s going to get plenty of WOWs!!!! where ever she goes – I just love it when my freeform pieces find good homes….
OK…. so call me obsessive but I just couldn’t help myself – I just had to make some more coral for the Sydney reef – this time I used ‘Fiesta Yarn’ by Arbee, a polypropylene ribbon & just love the results – However, the idea to use the ‘Fiesta Yarn’ was not mine – all credit for this great fun idea must go to Meg-an-jack – please check out her fabulous fibre art
Seeing her wonderful coral pieces reminded me that I had a whole bag of the stuff somewhere in my stash & so…. these new pieces will also be added to my contribution to the Sydney Hyperbolic Coral Reef Project
