Looks Like a Book

I thought I had put some of these faux bookboard medallions in the lynndavis Etsy shop, but it appears that I had only listed them in the expeditionD shop.

I wonder sometimes if I should really still have two shops. The idea was to keep the pewter and glass separate from the polymer clay and resin beads and components. And I used to only list jewelry in one, and only components in the other one.

I also wanted to have the hand dyed yarns, cloth and ribbon in the expeditionD shop.

I thought that people who were interested in one might not be interested in the other. They're kind of different styles and flavors. But now they're kind of blending together in some ways.

What do you think - does it make sense to have the two different shops?

This blue-gray medallion looks to me like it was cut from an old cloth-bound book, to reproduce that antique worn look. It has the words "The Profusely Illustrated STUDIO" on the front.

I think it would be fun with some chain as a choker, or as a medallion for a purse ornament.

But if you're looking for it, it's in the expeditionD Etsy shop.

That is really cute. I love the colors along with the words.

My feeling is is to have one shop...I think it makes it easier and quicker if we are already in one place looking to just stay there and keep looking. They have the separate categories up on the top bar, so you could put them in different places there..cynthia

Ohh, that's a tough one Lynn. Does it work for you? If so, leave two shops? I caught on right away, I think others will too?? Either way, it will be fine. Hugs, Riki

My thought was that the two shops had such a different style, the colors and ideas were so different, that the shop would lack continuity if I tried to put everything in one shop - and I have found in the past that folks who favor things from one don't seem to go to the other one - but now the lines are blurring a bit, so it makes me re-visit the idea. I wanted one to be definitely faux-tique with mostly metal, and the other a bit whimsical with more color. As long as you don't mind, neither do I!
