Tidying up

As you may have noticed, I been tidying up around here. It all began when I started listing the LANDSCAPE EAST jewellery on etsy, I'd only three pieces remaining to be listed when I noticed that etsy allowed me to set my shop to operate in GB £s. Gosh! is that new or have I been missing something... whatever. The up-shot was, I no longer had a reason for my folksy shop (you see, I'd just opened it for people who would rather purchase in good old British money); in a moment of rash decisiveness I deleted Magic Cochin's folksy emporium 'ping!' and now we just have one shop with various departments for cards, jewellery, etc – Magic Cochin's single online department store is so much easier for me to manage.

Of course the 'ping!' had a knock-on effect . . . I had to tidy up all the links on my web site and on PPPs. This resulted in the creation of graphic buttons to the right.

If you've visited the 'i sketch my day' journal, you'll see that I haven't posted a sketch for three days . . . real life got in the way like it does sometimes, but if you hop over to Twitter you can read brief snippets of news from in and around the studio.

I'll be back very soon with a preview of the Withersfield Christmas Bazaar and I'll tell you about another exciting auction purchase.

PS: If you have looked at Magic Cochin's Emporium on etsy and found the prices are still in dollars, look at the bottom of the page in the left hand corner and you'll see, very small 'currency:...'. Change that to GB£ and you'll see the original prices that I set up, rather than the dollar exchange rate conversions.
If you want to view prices in another currency you can do that too. Remember that the prices in GB £s stay the same, but in other currencies including dollars, they will fluctuate with the international exchange rates.

  4. I recently set up a Folksy shop for the simple reason that pounds were easier and then Etsy changed. How annoying is that!

  6. Hi Ocean Breezes - thank you! and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi Acornmoon - there is a facility to view all the prices in your currency of choice.

    ... and thanks, I've now fixed the link.

    Hi Jo - annoying isn't it! I decided that I can only manage one shop and as Rachel is well established on etsy I'll stay there too.

    Hi Veg Heaven - look at the bottom of the page in the left hand corner and you'll see a very small 'currency:...' Change that to GB£ and you'll see the original prices that I set up, rather than the dollar exchange rates conversions.

I love reading all the comments (except for spam and advertising which I will delete) and I'll reply here in the comments under each blog post, it may take a few days if I'm busy.
You don't need to have a blog to leave a comment, you can select the name/URL option and fill in just your name instead of a blog link.
And, I've turned off that annoying word verification malarkey, to make it easy for you :-)
