Boutiquefantastique is my etsy shop for vintage clothes. The avatar is my Auntie Dolly, my mums sister, whom I loved very much. Uncle Joe is the groom.
It is my slowest shop and I was waiting for the magic number of sales - 222- to show up.
It was a bit of a nightmare getting there.
The first #222 ( see below) I could not find and had to cancel the sale. The buyer was very understanding and replied " these things happen" .
The second # 222 sale on a fur coat cancelled within the hour, the same coat received 3 very ( ridiculous ) low ball offers all on the same day and finally sold at #223 on a lay-a-way.
Sale #222 was a sweet 1930s wedding dress going to Florida.
This site needs some attention.....pull your socks up Jan!
Sounds like 222 was a difficult number to reach....now onwards to 333 perhaps? I shouldn't, however, have gone over to peek at that wedding dress because now I am wishful thinking over all things satin and lace for stitching fodder. As if I need it!!ReplyDelete
333 sounds good to me,Delete
Your aunty Dolly looks gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I find clothes very hard to photograph as well as linen. I've almost given up buying linen for my vintage shop as I never seem to be able to make it look spotless or pressed enough. I also had to cancel a sale once because I couldn't find the item. What are we like?
I agree, but at least linen is easy to pack and send.ReplyDelete
BTW, it is not te first time I have 'lost'an item.
I think your photos are beautiful, and your models too.ReplyDelete
thanks Dawn, that makes me feel a bit betterReplyDelete
taking good photographs is one of the biggest challenges with any online venture I find....if only we could all afford the professionals...ReplyDelete
