Today is the anniversary of 4 ( or is it 5?) years of selling vintage textiles on etsy.
I gave up on ebay as it had become such an ugly environment.
Etsy is changing too, going from a handcrafted and vintage site to one packed with cheap factory imports. There are many dynamite shops there but they are increasingly getting lost in the huge increase of sellers and a somewhat dysfunctional search engine.
I wish I knew the direction this site is going, I don't think the administration know either.
But I struggle on with my 3 shops.
My original shop 'fabriquefantastique' started by selling vintage fabrics only.....but now I hardly sell any fabric, yard goods or remnants.
'Boutiquefantastique' ...vintage clothing only, jogs slowly on....I only buy for this shop something jumps out at me.
And 'foulardfantastique' devoted to scarves.
Must say, I still enjoy the thrill of the chase.
Please forgive the shameless self promotion.
