This is pretty crazy, this getting to the Etsy 500 milestone.
As a small business, and an arts one, a ceramics studio to boot, you don't know how people are going to look at your work online - We have 'street' experience, and that's pretty much it. It's hard capturing the essence of the work with a camera lens, and it's hard trying to describe the work without being verbose (at least for me!)
People react to things differently when they're online - And somehow, we've managed to attract people, even if it's just to quickly click through our work for now. We've made an impression, and got them to look - That's such a rewarding feeling.
Ok, off to clean the workspace - This weekend is our Open Studio, and our friend/fellow Etsyan marstinia will be here, and it's SO scary in here at the moment :)
Here's a picture so I can do a "Before and After" shot tomorrow night:
