sales blog effective this Saturday...even though I just listed a few journals there.
I've had so few sales via that blog over the years that it's not worth it to me to hang on to it. There's also the bigger discussion, which I have with myself ongoingly, about whether or not to even try to sell my work any longer. And after this last brief spell of making things with the intention of selling them, I've decided, finally, to ditch that whole operation.
This doesn't mean I won't sell any of my work, but it means I won't be making anything for the express purpose of selling it. That whole thing really hasn't worked for me since my beaded jewelry days. Other than supplies, which I've done fairly well with at Etsy on and off over the last seven years, my online sales of finished artwork have been abysmal. And in order to actually sell anything, I've typically had to discount my work by as much as 75 percent to get people to buy it. As poor as I am, I'm simply not willing to do that any longer.
So, that said, if you ever see anything posted here on this blog that you would be interested in purchasing, then email me for details. I'll continue to process the occasional online sale through PayPal for anybody who wants to buy, but I'm not going to be marketing any of my work. Local peeps, nothing changes. I'll always have stuff you can buy for gifts.
And if I never sell anything again? Well then, that's more work to donate to Miranda's Rescue and Sequoia Humane Society in support of animal welfare in Humboldt County.
