A Word About Photography

I would like to say a word or two about photography. I've looked at many pictures of items for sale and would like to give a word of advice. If you are trying to sell an item, take your photos in natural light if at all possible. Go outside and take your pictures. Try not to use a flash. A flash leaves bright spots on the item to be sold that could be interpreted as a flaw on the item.

Always think about your background and how it will reflect on your item. If you are photographing jewelry for sale, using mirrors in natural light will allow your buyers to see the front and inside of the piece and there will be no surprises for your buyers when they purchase your item.

Natural light will always showcase your item in the "best possible light."

Taking it On

I'm at a time in my life to make some decisions. My fiftieth birthday is coming up and I couldn't be more excited. I have found strength over the past year that I couldn't imagine that I had. For the first time in my life, I feel like I'm doing well, I feel strong and alive. I'm making my way in this life and in this world. I am busy but it feels good. Having a handmade store takes work, and making a success of it takes even more work. Having a vintage store takes work and hopefully, success will follow, but either way, I'm taking it on...
