I have been doing a bit of re-organisation during the last month or so, and changing round my ebay listings –
so thought I’d let you know what changes I have made, as they might be a bit confusing for my customers – and I don’t want to lose you!
When I started this blog several years ago, it was actually called Julz Spinning and Weaving Club, and was really just a place for my customers to find out a bit more about what I stocked. The blog changed radically from January of this year, when I did the online blogging101 course and I learnt how to use the range of possibilities that blogging can give you! The background used to be a tiled version of the pink woven scarf I made ages ago – smile – but a lot of people on the course thought it was a bit fussy as a background, so I changed to the current look!
You might not have noticed, that I have just subtly changed the header – it used to say Julz Crafts and was a bit clunky!
So from now on, its Julz Craft Supplies – a name I have always used for my etsy account – this is the banner I am using for my shop on etsy – if you click on the banner it will take you there.
I had a long standing business account on ebay (called 85solway), but hadn’t used it for a while, so I opened a new account last year, which I called julzweaving – a bit more relevant for what I intended to sell!
Things have gone really well on julzweaving – but there was a problem – it was a private account – which meant that I had 20 free listings a month – great! – but at the same time – it was treated as a new account and I was only allowed to list a set amount of items a month!
This has been getting more and more of a nuisance, and you might have noticed that I have had to constantly add or subtract the number of say, cones of warping yarns I have to sell, when I actually have 20, I’ve only been able to list 4! They gave me the maximum amount of items allowed on a private account – BUT I have been juggling with it for months now!
I was just about to change julzweaving into a business account, so I could list more items, when I found out that it was easy to change the name of my old account – 85solway – to julzcraftsupplies! It literally took me 2 minutes – I’ve had that account since 2004 and I’d never realised I could change the name!
SO – I AM SLOWLY MOVING THE LISTINGS
FROM JULZWEAVING TO JULZCRAFTSUPPLIES!
(Clicking on the names of the accounts will take you to them)
As the listings expire on julzweaving, I will be moving them over to julzcraftsupplies – which allows me to list as many items as I want and the full amount of stock I have of each! (Many of these are also available in the etsy shop)
I will not be closing the julzweaving account, and I’m sure I’ll be using my free listings there – maybe for auction listings so you can get a bargain – maybe for just personal items I want to sell – but just at the moment, both sites are stocking my craft supplies – and I’m sorry if I am confusing my buyers – but unless I mention it on the actual listings – there is no way on ebay itself, to let you know that they have moved!
COMING SOON – CHRISTMAS FABRICS FOR YOU TO
MAKE XMAS STOCKINGS, GIFTS ETC – AND …..
On julzcraftsupplies – I have re-stocked with both standard and mini hand carders for spinners and also got a new lot of carding cloth in for those of you who would like to make your own BLENDING BOARD. Instructions are given on the listing – and this time I have not only 13″ lengths, but also 18″ lengths, which give you more scope for producing interesting rolags.
