|Tea Tree and Rosemary Facial Soap|
But mostly, I have been soaping my tail off because I finally got my soap shop online. I mostly have it for friends and family. Everyone who has gotten a bar of soap from me has come back a week later asking where can they buy it. (I tell everyone I am like a drug dealer, the first hit is free.) So, finally sick of everyone hounding me, I sat down, got my ducks in a row and opened up on Zibbet. I chose Zibbet, because you can, if you choose, sell completely for free. Granted, you have some limits with the free account, such as how many items can be listed per listing, how many items you can sell a month, etc. (I bumped up to the second tier of selling, $5/month as I have already made 4 sales, and if it keeps going I will be going to the $8/month, unlimited account.) But the site is lovely, to look at, the listing is easy, and other than the monthly fee, if you actually use a paid account, there are no listing or final selling fees. Is it as much exposure as Etsy, definitely not, but since this shop is meant for a small group of people, and I am not ready to go whole hog quite yet, Zibbet is perfect.
I go on vacation, and by go, I mean I get to stay home for a week, starting next week for my birthday. While I am home I hope to get some more business work done, some actual non-soap related crafting done, like sewing and scrapping, and get some blog posts planned out so I can get on a regular blogging schedule again. I also need to start planning Christmas presents. Has anyone else even thought of this yet? Please say no.
