Store Closing: Big Cartel

Well after thinking long and hard about it, I've decided to close my Big Cartel jewelry shop! To clear the store, I am offering 40% off with coupon code: CLOSINGSALE
I will be keeping the Tin Snippets store, that is the best for components! But for jewelry, I have better luck at Etsy!

Thank you all for your Big Cartel love while it was open!!

  2. Hi Lorelei tho I did kind of like the Big cartel I always thought you had a wopping following with Etsy. And anyone can go back into Etsy and see your SOLD items and request an item; whereas the Big Cartel a person cant. So...
    I think this is a great move!

  3. Yeah, I agree with Janet. It sucks, though, because you're paying Etsy so much more monthly - believe me - I know. It's a catch 22 and a tough one to crack.

    I've got a Big Cartel shop but haven't ever used it. Fact is you have to have a huge customer base separate from Etsy for BC to work.

  4. Hi Lorelei! I am so excited ~ I just bought "Morocco" ~ I coveted that bracelet from the moment you posted a photo of it. I can't wait 'til it comes! Thanks so much!

  5. Good to know. I was thinking of doing that but I think for now I'll stick with Etsy. Not that I sell that much on there but it is a nice presence to have. They get so much traffic!

  7. Sad, but the way it is I guess - I love both your shops.
    I've just downgraded my BC to the free option - has been so quiet, like no sales in 4 months its been running :(
    PS. I love my Morocco necklace by the way - I wear it all the time and get lots of compliments - so wonderful! - keep up the gorgeousness! Vicki

  8. Hmmm... why not just post your bc inventory on etsy? :)
    That will give me more time to buy your bashful necklace! lol

    I understand, though. Sometimes it's necessary to simplify life.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
