I listed on ebay


I was talking to Sandy today about not having any sales since I decided to sell my crafts. She told me that I wasn't allowed to complain anymore until I had tried everything...and list on ebay....so here goes....and if this fails then I guess I am not meant to sell my stuff. Have a look if you like....http://dolls.shop.ebay.co.uk/items/?_nkw=9+inch+primitive+doll&_sacat=237&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313&_odkw=9inch+primitive+doll&_osacat=237s It looks brighter that is is. It is much better in real life and not bright at all. A few of my blogging friends will back me on this. I think I need a better camera!

Just wondering Robby, have you tried selling on etsy? It's gaining in popularity and a really nice place for crafters and artisans to sell. I left ebay to go to etsy because it concentrates on handmade items and I've been very happy with the move.

Welcome to Ebay! I started selling one item at a time, and have slowly learned. Photos are hard to do. Experiment with photo software and taking the brightness out of the photo. I started using an auction software to add more photos for no extra charge, which seemed to help. I do have to say sales have been REALLY slow since the late fall. I think with the economy the way it is, no one is buying much. You might want to try playing around with the title, such as : Primitive black doll, shelf sitter, folk art. The more catch phrases on the title, the more searches it could pop up. Let's hope for a few good bids!
