Shoshi’s Blog Shop is Now Open for Business!

You will see that I now have pages on my blog, with tabs running along under the banner heading. I have started a Blog Shop by popular request for my zentangle art to start with, and I shall be adding further items as time goes on.
A few months ago I opened an Etsy store but nothing sold – I did an experiment and searched for “mixed media mirrors” and mine came up on about the 20th page of the search, which proved that the whole thing is just too big for people to find you unless you are already known. Although I still have an account, and officially, an Etsy shop, there is now nothing in it. Since then I have been wondering about the best way forward, and wanted to keep it all on my blog if possible, and having established via the Blogger forum that it is permitted, this is what I have now set up.
If you are interested in purchasing anything, please email me with the details, and give me your snail mail address so that we can arrange the purchase. After this, click on the “donate” button at the top of my left side bar to pay – this will take you to Paypal (never mind if you don’t have a Paypal account, because they accept credit card payments as well). Once the payment has been cleared into my bank account, I will get the item to you.
To avoid a large financial outlay and storage problems, I do not want to create a large stock at home. Cards and prints are no problem as they can be relatively quickly made up (although the mounts for the prints have to be ordered) but I need to get the cork-backed coasters made up especially, and may need to order more plastic mounts, so please bear with me and don’t expect a by-return-post delivery! I shall do my best to be as quick as I can.
I hope you will enjoy this new venture of mine.


  1. Brilliant idea!!!! I'll be putting in an order for some elephants at some point as I love that little guy! Hope your sales go really really well - you definitely deserve it to!

  2. Best of luck Shoshi - I'm sure you will be kept extremely busy :0)

  3. Congratulations on setting yourself up to sell your wonderful pieces of art. I wish you the best of luck with this venture.

    I did my first Zentangle yesterday thanks to the inspirational ATC you sent me, and also another blogger, Paula, who's links I followed to find out info.

  4. It's really interesting to hear about your Etsy experiences Shoshi.
    I've recently opened a store but maybe it's not the best option.
    I'll be keen to see what happens with your Blog Shop...I'm sure it'll be a huge success.
    Good Luck ;D

  5. good luck with the blog shop. Love your zentangle. You are very creative and have some lovely pieces.
