Right now I have 4 shops on ArtYah.
1-Creative Designs by Barb--this is where I have my aprons and kids purses
2-Paintings--Right now I have Paintings and some jewelry
3-All That Glitters-- I was transferring the jewelry over here
4--Handmade Greeting Cards

I would like to get this down to 2 shops. Any suggestions as to what I should combine?
Should I put the paintings and cards together
And the aprons and jewelry together

Or should I do it some other way?
Any suggestions is appreciated

Happy New Year!

I would put paintings and cards together.
Or you could put paintings, cards, and jewelry together and have the one shop for aprons, clothing, etc.
Just my opinion.

Hi Barb: I'd do as you suggested, put paintings and cards together because these are related as artwork, and put aprons and jewelry together as these are related as attire/fashion/accessories.

Good luck! I'm in process of closing at least 3 shops and consolidating too!

I was just wondering once we get the new site where we can have our own sections. What would be wrong in setting up your shop like a department store and having the different section to be your different departments?
Any ideas on this?

It's a good idea. Anything to make it easier for your customers to move around your shop and find product groups. I group related products, which is how stores do it.

I am seriously thinking about putting everything in my Creative Designs store. The title isn't specific to any one type of item.
I thought I might start putting it all in there and be ready when the new site is ready to add my Sections or Departments as I will try to call them.

I have the ones on Art Yah down to only 3 shops now and the Etsy still has 2 shops so I still have 5 shops which s too many to give much attention to each shop.
what do you think?

It is whether you think it is a good idea, but if you then decided to start creating something else it could still be included in the name

Yes, that is true. It would work ok as long as they set the search up like Etsy search. Where the newer the listing the better location for it.
I wish I knew how they are going to have it.
If it is just by revrelance it would wok ok

You could put everything in your Creative Designs store, where you could add anything and everything. That's why I have my main Artsy Craftery Studio-named shops. Faster to list in catch-alls. But if you create a LOT of stuff, I'd say have 2 shops here, one your Creative Designs store, and another to take some of the future bulk from it. The 2nd shop could be specialized, the product line that you have the most of, and leave the rest for your Creative Designs store. I'm saying this because:
  1. You seem to be like me, using a variety of media and creative techniques to make lots of products. This can result in a huge number of categories in order to organize everything for customers. I love categories, but if the list is huge, customers can get frustrated.
  2. There may be limited categories available at the new site, I don't know. Even Etsy has limited cats available I believe. Isn't it 20? I think Bonanza's is unlimited, and that is why I have 4 shops there. My categories list for my 1st shop was getting longer. I wanted to have a good variety of products, but didn't want my customers to get overwhelmed with so much in one shop. So if AY will have limited categories you may find yourself bursting at the seams as you develop more products and need new categories. If you're going to let some products spill over into your Etsy shop, then 1 catch-all shop here could work.

Do you sell much on Bonanza?

I have thought about trying it again.

Right now all I seam to be able to sell is fabric at a reduced price.
