600 scarves

600 scarves have been sold from my etsy scarf shop.....Foulardfantastique!!

The last 100 have been more of a struggle as etsy does not seem to know whether it is coming or going.

Months of frustrating testing, algorithm changes, search engine malfunction,  invasion of cheap manufactured crap  ( which they can't decide if they want or not) etc.

But I plod on, as I really have no other good ideas for an on-line selling platform. I really do not like ebay.

The thrill of the hunt drives me forward.


  1. I know just what you mean - what are they on? I have a really steady run for ages, then a slow bit, then it might speed up again. I'm talking vintage here by the way, the handmade is more problematic and I need to concentrate a bit more on that shop but the other is the more lucrative and I also have 'the thrill of the hunt' with it which, in some way, counteracts the opposite emotion when it comes to packing stuff ready for shipping - yuk! Anyway, you have done well with your beautiful scarves and it's always good when a passion can earn you a bit of dosh at the same time.

    1. By the way, I'm a bit worried about you lot over in Canada. They keep running trailers for your version of Masterchef on t.v. and there appear to be some truly scary people on it - both presenters and contestants. Just saying.....

    2. That does, indeed sound scary.....I'll ask the kids if they have sen it. The department of health is really mean here in Toronto, the only street food allowed to be sold is pre-cooked sausages.

  2. Wow! Very nice scarves. I like the first one.
