I have been toying with the idea for a while of opening a shop on Etsy. I have some stock of mounted fine art photos to sell and I also enjoy crafts such as knitting and sewing in my spare time. I am rapidly running out of projects to do for my house and there are only so many occasions when I can give handmade presents.
Hence the thought of opening an Etsy shop. Imagine my delight when I got started, to discover that they now offered digital downloads for us to sell to customers. Quick and easy - you pay and then get a digital file of the photograph to print out as many times as you like for your own personal use.
I am slowly building up my stock in my shop - with proceeds of the handmade crafts going to Parkinson's UK support and research charity. My mum was recently diagnosed with the disease so I wanted to help in a small way.
Please take a look www.etsy.com/shop/GillianCrossFineArt and I hope you are tempted by something! Thanks, Gillian.
