Putting a Store Online
I never in my wildest dreams believed how much work is involved in all those wonderful, easy to navigate websites I've been browsing around in all these years. It's very time consuming, but I'm learning a lot. What's hardest is to try to impart the uniqueness and variety that is our "brick and mortar" store, without you the customer being able to see, smell, and most of all TOUCH what's being offered. For instance, today I sold yarn right off my smoking hot spinning wheel, yarn that wasn't even spun yet. It was durable, warm light brown Shetland sport weight sock yarn, with just a tiny hint of golden trilobal nylon sparkle, to add visual interest and some strength to the sock yarn. I had mentally named it "Old Copper", and the shelf I planned to place it on in our store must stay empty for yet another day or two. It would have looked really nice in a photo on our webpage. I'll have to make more! Meanwhile, back at the web building... I feel somewhat like a trapdoor spider. Welcome... join us... fear not.
