This is the last week that my Etsy shop will be open! I'll keep the store front until mid July, just to have info on where else to find me. But all of the items will be removed on June 30th.
Because DA was the first gallery I ever had, you guys get a special coupon code that will get you 30% off your total order.
You can enter 'DAOTTER' at check out, or I think this link >> DAOTTER
<< Should make it so it happens automatically.
Anyway, thanks again for being my first home. I'm sorry I don't upload as much as I used to. I am feeling a bit of a lul in the photography side of things. I need something new to get the spark back I think.
So I'm sure you have all heard by now. Etsy is going to be increasing their selling fee to 5%, and taking some money out of shipping cost. This is all to better their website, get more people to you, etc etc. It's all flavor text. Bottom line. TINY sellers cannot sell there anymore without raising their prices to meet the fee increase.
I'm choosing not to do that. For someone who has been battling what to charge for goods it's impossible for me to just go, oh yeah these price increases are because of my host. Sorry.
So instead, the shop will stay open until June 30th. Just so I don't have to pay another 20 cents per listing for half of a month.
I'll be looking for another platform to sell on.
This is honestly just a hobby for me, something that I hope will eventually pay for itself. No bills are paid with the money I make from selling photo prints. The profit goes to upkeep equipment and 20% of sales go to wildlife organizations, like refuges, rehab centers, zoos and other awesome organizations working to keep wild lands wild.
There is the shop link if you want to go check anything out. There are some awesome mystery print deals for the indecisive as well.
