If you are a regular reader then you will have seen my new feather brooches that I made recently... they have had a great reception so far, one even made it to the Etsy UK front page, and I really love making them but I wondered how well they sit within my Inkmeup shop. I think they look great by my worry is that the rest of Inkmeup doesn't do them justice and I don't want them to get buried under lots of prints and lavender bags.
bout handmade shops a while ago by Mary Portas, that's Mary Queen of shops from the telly! In the article she said that people should carefully consider how they arrange their shops, she talks about product adjacencies... ... in my case I have a fashion item in a shop full of homewares and prints... how does this represent the item in it's best light? Will fashion shoppers even find my brooches buried in the listings of prints and lavender bags?
I think I am leaning towards a new shop... with just quitting my day job I feel I need some freshness... so we'll see... probably later in the week when I have some more stuff made up. In fact the more I think about it the more I'm tempted to do it... so watch this space for a grand opening... and maybe a giveaway!
