Feathered Gems is now on Etsy!

by kathyjohnson on November 19, 2008

I’ve wanted to get a shopping cart installed on the Feathered Gems website for several years. It obviously hasn’t happened yet. Now that I’ve moved FG away from GoDaddy (the worst web host ever) to BlueHost, I have access to several shopping cart programs for free or extremely reasonable prices. But first I have to re-do the code of the entire site to streamline it and bring it into the 21st century. Since much of FG was hand-coded back in the late 1990s, and the rest was barfed out by MS FrontPage (which butchered the internal code badly) streamlining it is going to take some time.

In the meantime, I’ve been hanging out on a jewelry discussion forum called Starving Jewelry Artists and learning about some of the online selling venues available to us. Some of the members on SJA started an Etsy Street Team (basically a cross-promotion group) for the folks on the forum. I decided to give it a go, and set up a shop on Etsy to sell some of my non-animal-themed things. I intend to put some of the artsy stuff I’ve been making on there, as well as some jewelry making supplies I won’t be using,  some craft books, fabric, stained glass (yes, I do stained glass too, as well as fused glass…), and maybe even some crocheted thread lace if I can ever get the carpal tunnel problem in my right hand under control. My Etsy shop went live yesterday. Please take a look and tell me what you think of the shop and its contents. It’s easy to remember–  featheredgems.etsy.com
