A post of substance, maybe you can help?

  I've been thinking a lot about my Etsy page lately. I had a rare bout of apparent ambitiousness a few weeks ago when I needed something for my skin and wound up making cold cream. "Why don't I sell this?" says I. I've been trying to, and I realize that I'm still 'new' and need to be patient but I'm wondering if I need to expand the types of items I have.

 Sure, I have some flowers I can put up, but really I need to wait for spring to see where they are as far as health and... uhm... geographically some of them (some of the bulbs are all mixed up and unlabeled right now). Beside that I need to get good pictures of a few of them anyhow....

  Er... back on point! I was thinking about adding soap and/or lip balm (tube style) and/or liquid soaps and/or deodorant powders to the bath section. I don't know if I've scatter-shotted myself to death or I'm just that indecisive, but for the life of me I can't figure out where to start!

 Though, I have decided one thing. I am going to make some set 'flavors' in basic tins/tubs to go along with the refillable ones I have listed. I have a feeling that might help a bit.


  Ideas? Lip balm? Lotion? Soap/Liquid soap?

Le sigh.

Hi there! I added your eucalyptus cold cream as one of my favorites the other day, and just read your blog to see what you've been up to. I don't know if I'll be any help to you (I'm new at etsy, too), but I thought I would remark that I'd rather see you advertise for the specific scent/flavor of your cold creams than list them in the listing. I think it might add a little more variety to your page? Hope this makes sense and that I'm not hurting any feelings! Look forward to seeing what else you add to your etsy shop! :-)

Thanks so much for your comment! No hurt feelings at all :)

That is an excellent idea! I'll have to make some listings for some specific scents right as soon as I get my container shipment!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

(lol I moderated myself dumb wording.. jeez, more coffee says I!)

Great! Glad that made sense! I'm looking into adding a few "bath" things to my shop too! Just as soon as I can get out of all this snow!

Take care!
