Over 450 listings on Etsy!

Wow! I just noticed that I now have over 450 items in my Etsy shop! Some of these are repeats, but still that is a lot of beads. And yet it is only a small fraction of my collection. I am going to work at getting more of my beads into my shop.

I've made great progress at moving beads from eBay to Etsy - I am hoping to finish with this project by the end of the week. While working on the transfer, I have found some beads that I thought I had sold out of but still have a few of. It is funny to see my reaction when I find them - you'd think I had ran into an old friend. If you are into beads like I am you probably understand.

I have to go & see if I can get to 500!

March Madness

After much thought I have decided to close my eBay shop at least temporarily. I am going to keep my account open, just not my store. I am instead going to concentrate on selling via my Etsy shop and getting my beads more organized. I want to close by the end of March - when eBay changes the fees/rules for sellers yet again. So now I am in the mad rush to get everything out of the eBay store & into my Etsy shop. While I have been doing this I have found beads that I frankly had no idea I still had. It's funny because I find myself falling in love with beads I've had for years all over again.
