Here we go again. On May 15th I will close my Etsy shop for good. You know how when you break up with someone and then get back together.
I quit Etsy before.Then went back to my rankerous, dysfunctional relationship with them. I'm so done with them.
Etsy takes all my listings to populate their new supply site. Can I make them stop? No. That's just one of my beefs. Their total indifference towards sellers creates a neverending stream of abuses against sellers. It's the nature of the beast.
Time to move on.
All my books will be sold here after May 15.
I have moved everything else to Zibbet because my plan here doesn't include downloads. To get things like international shipping options and downloads is way too expensive. for me.
I'm looking to post more often on this blog. Most bloggers say that. But I am going to go outside of my policy to include posts that are not about bookbinding and occasionally add snippets of bookbinding info like the post below.
If you are a bookbinder and want to add a free link to your bookbinding site in my sidebar, then let me know. You can supply a clickable logo or pic link for me or just email with your URL.
