Bud & Paddy are now available in my new Etsy shop!
28/3/09 Update: Bud has been adopted!
On the downside, visitors to Etsy have to find the artist bears section by clicking on 'dolls and miniatures' and then finding the sub-heading 'artist bears', which is a little long-winded. Hopefully Etsy will eventually include 'artist bears' in their main listings.
My bears will still be available direct from www.allbear.co.uk and as soon as they sell from either the website or my Etsy shop, they will be removed from sale from the alternative venue; so there won't be any confusion over duplication of sales.
I am hoping my little corner of Etsy will provide an opportunity to promote my work and artist bears in general, to a wider international audience and if it helps achieve a few sales in the current economic gloom too, hey, even better!
Update: How lovely! Several Etsy members have kindly supported my shop by adding my Etsy shop to their listed favourites and 'Bud' has been featured in 'The world is my studio' treasury!
