Reorganizing, or Trying to Maximize the Net

Sorry I haven't been around much- I did a fun etsy at the market in Ann Arbor last Sunday, and I am frantically getting ready for by far my biggest event of the year. It's Giftorama at Kingswood School in Bloomfield Hills a few days after the election. It is 2 1/2 days, and last year was just crazy. I almost ran-out of goods, plus I was still using my walker bc of my foot. I am determined to have 3 or 4 times more merchandise this year. It is so much fun, inside, and a definate money-maker. Can't wait!

I am always fiddling with the computer, seeing what's out there, changing things around, and I have yet another new plan!

I have done ok with PinkyLouLou.com, but I have done really well with Etsy, especially for supplies. So, I am going to just have PinkyLouLou.com be an ad with links to my selling stores. I feel that being a part of a marketplace is best right now for me. I feel like when I put handmade items in my Etsy shop they get lost. So, I am dividing my things into 2 different names, one for supplies and one for my handmades, with the same names wherever you go on the world-wide net.

PinkyLouLou is for handmades.
PinkyLouLou etsy. PinkyLouLou at ShopHandmade. And PinkyLouLou at LolliShops (not open until late November). Oh, I've also put some things up on Cafepress.

MLouIsPink is for supplies.
MLouIsPink on etsy. I'll also have a vintage supply store on Lollishops.

I feel like I am forgetting something....

I have gone back a little bit to my millinery roots in the past couple of weeks and made some fancies for your hair. I am using feathers, millinery leaves and flowers, different kinds of French netting, vintage shiny baubles, and more. It is so much fun! Hope you like them!
