Train update

Just want to give you a quick update on how it´s going with my summershop - and thanks to all of you who left such nice and encouraging coments and a special thanks to Mandarine d´Italie and Rafaela Tomazzoni who featured me on their blogs.

It has been going well so far, it was a good decision to convert the train carriage into a shop/gallery space and I get a lot of positive feedback from the people who come around. I just wish more people would find out here but having said that I have actually sold quite well and I even got commissions for a customized slip dress and two bags so I am quite busy ;-)

Last year I bought some plain white boxes for my wares which I decided to pimp a bit so these are my new Fleur de Boheme giftboxes:


I even made Fleur de Boheme badges in different colours which I give away to customers to help them remember me and people seem to like them - haven´t taken a picture of them yet but will post one later.

Last not least two pictures from the exhibition at my friend Tracys gallery, the space is much different from my own venue but it´s such a beautiful gallery and my things look very nice there I think.



I haven´t asked the other artists yet if it´s alright for them that I post pictures of their work on my blog, but I hope I can show you their work in my next posting.

  1. So glad to hear that people are finding you and the little shop is taking off! It looks so pretty--I love your boxes too :)

    And you work looks really beautiful in your friend's gallery as well--is that the "Marie Antoinette" exhibit you mentioned before? That soft color palette is gorgeous.

    take care,
    Ivy

  8. Hej Kirsten
    Det er første gang jeg besøger din blog og har lige læst længere ned ad siden:-)
    Men jeg har fulgt dig et stykke tid på etsy, når man klikker på shop local. Jeg syntes du laver nogle rigtig smukke ting, og kan heller ikke forstå at du/jeg/vi ikke sælger så meget. Og det selv om man aktiverer varer hele tiden. På min hannebdesign solgte jeg 11 ting fra marts til dec. så skete der pludselig lidt mere, men det er dælme svært. På mine andre nyere etsy shoppe går det dælme også langsomt. Min erfaring med showspots er også lig med nul, så det er bedre at bruge pengene på at aktivere tingene regelmæssigt. Har også prøvet at hæve/sænke priser, uden at se nogen forskel. Vi må bare klø på:-) Dine shoppe ser ihvertilfælde fantastiske ud:-)
    Det blev vist et langt inlæg...

  9. Hi, I hope your summer shop went well.Looking forward to seeing more of your inspirational creations.
    Whilst I would not fit into your lovely clothes, it has inspired me to make my own clothes again and re-vamp some of my existing favourites that still fit with embellishments.

    Thank you!
