Apparently, StorEnvy only allows a maximum of 500 items per shop, which for someone who, in addition to two novels, half a dozen for-sale paintings, an e-calendar, also has over 900 button designs up for sale, is unacceptable.
The Nocturnal Spirits shop on Etsy, as well as my OddModOut button shop, is now CLOSED! This is because of complete nonsense that I’d contest if Etsy’s listing fees weren’t eating 30-50% of my profits every month, meaning i was planning on moving to a different site, anyway (my original plan was to wait to do it until after I’ve moved in a couple weeks, but oh well….)
On the good side, I’m on Artfire, now, and not only are they cheaper (a flat rate in tiers, based on shop size — ranging from Free for only 24 items in a shop to $60/month for 2500+/unlimited items — I’m currently at $40/month for 501-1000 items, whereas on Etsy, I was paying an average of $85/month), they’ve been absolute dolls to deal with, so far.
I’m also allowed more than ten Shop Sections/Categories, meaning I can not only categorise all my buttons, but also have categories for my writing, music, and art projects without needing to set up multiple shops. It’s pretty much an all-purpose e-Boutique for everything I do, and I plan on eventually branching out into jewellery, beaded items, kombolói, and more.
Where this is especially relevant, here, is that I just noticed that they allow Digital media items for sale, as well, meaning anyone waiting for the next edition of the New Boeotian Calendar will definitely have a place to go pick it up! Because I’ll be moving very soon, I’m going to postpone actually working on the new edition until after I have the computer set up at the new place, but if you were hoping for it, that’s what’s up with that!
Until the new New Boeotian Calendar is done, and since the year is almost over, I’m going to post the current calendar for $2 (or $1.70 for other Artfire patrons/sellers)!! (The new NBC will be at the regular price of $4.) If you still don’t have a copy, yet, and you want to check it out before getting the new one, now is the time! I’m able to update this thing in less than two weeks, at this point, so you’ve got maybe four weeks, tops, to get this!
