Setting Up Shop

I have been expressing since last fall how I wish to set up at the farmers market to sell my hand crafted items. I was originally going in with three other friends, but one had a baby in February and one moved away for work, leaving us two older birds to contend with a dream.

The one with the baby makes homemade canned goods.
The one who moved away is a horticulturalist and would sell flowers from her parents farm.
The third, still game, is older them me and makes wonderful cards.
I smock and knit.

The dream is still there but on hold.I need to make stock. In the meanwhile I have sold about a dozen bonnets, both on-line and from showmanship of my youngest.

In the meanwhile I have decided to make a pretty shop on-line to sell my goods. That way when someone sees one of my bonnets on my daughter ( last week 7 people stopped me) I can hand them a business card with my web page and they can order or get in touch with me that way.

I had a web page but I am closing it and renaming my shop after the name of our farm. That way when I do set shop at the farmers market the farm name is included.

Tonight I have spent hours setting it up. I thought I would present it tonight to you all. I still have lots to go on the page, but this is a start.

here it is: (click on Locus Lane Farm)

Tell me what you think. Positive and negative and any other ideas that might come to minds.

Thanks a million.

Great idea to sell on-line until your market dream starts. I've always wanted to have a booth at a market. Your on-line shop looks great!

It looks great!

The shop looks good. Have you actually priced what the dollies will cost to mail? They are thicker than the 'slot of doom' and so will have to go parcel post.

I like your business plan! Your things are very sweet - I hope you get even more customers.

You mean "accept" instead of "except" when you say which methods of payment you take.
