Store Opening Moved Up

November 19, 2009

Pro-Portional Designs Etsy opening has been moved up from Wednesday, November 25th, 2009 to Monday, November 23rd, 2009.

It looks as if there will also be another model – who shall remain nameless for the time being.

I finished another bag today and plan to felt it with the others very soon (I’d like them to be available for the opening.)


Store Launch – Possibly Moved Up

November 17, 2009

Alright a lot of items have been “pre-listed” on Etsy. Meaning that I have listed the majority of the items I have ready for sale and their descriptions but not pictures and the listings have not been activated so the public will not see them. That had to be an incredibly grammatically incorrect sentence.

I really want not only the launch to be successful but the store as well so I am trying my best to present all items in the best possible ways.

There are a few concerns that there will be last minute problems that keep the store from opening on time so I will be trying to take more pictures tomorrow without the planned model, Elizabeth K., to insure that Pro-Portional Designs will open on or before November 25th, 2009. If I do open early the launch date will most likely be Monday, November 23rd, 2009.

The reason for a lot of this being put off is that there is a particular item I made and it is not my size which is what spawned my decision to have/use a model (who it should fit but I will not know until the date she comes for us to take pictures.)

Also, I am very uncertain about shipping. So right now all shipping costs have been estimated by using USPS’s online shipping calculator. As mentioned in my store policies customers will be charged a shipping and handling fee. The handling fee is pretty much to cover the packaging.

That covers most of what is going on for now.

Launch Date Nearly Set

November 10, 2009

I said I did not want to open with less than twenty items and this looks like it will indeed be more than a little possible. I have a girl who has agreed to do the modeling for the shots and who also seems to intend to help put together the photos in an eye catching way for the store. My second “helper” is still away but will soon once again be available.

Once I hear back from my model – we will see if the launch date of November 25th is a lock.

Slowly I Turn

November 8, 2009

A few days ago I pulled out the items that I intend to sell and I nearly have the decided 20 items to open the store. I felt any less than twenty and there wouldn’t be too much to see. This amount gives me enough time to try and finish and load other projects before the stock has too much chance of dwindling.

One of the people that will probably be involved in the “photo shoot” for the items to be listed is away for about another week so once he is back I can get photos and should have enough stock to officially open.
