Very excited to open my new online store! I have Christmas greeting cards for sale at www.mindyindy.com/greeting-cards ! All 5 of the card designs are based off of last year’s Christmas carol doodletunes (illustrations of songs). Left to right: Carol of the Bells, We Three Kings, Silent Night, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, and Suzy Snowflake! You can order one card for $5 or a pack of 5 for $20 = buy 4 get one free (+$1 shipping for one and $2 shipping for a pack). The store takes PayPal, which can also take credit cards if you don’t have a PayPal account. Now is the time to start getting cards because Christmas will be here before you know it! The only one that says “Happy Holidays” is Suzy Snowflake - the rest say Christmas.
If you’ve been following me long enough you know how crazy my TO DO lists are, and creating an online store has been on my to do list for YEARS. For awhile I was deciding if I should go with Etsy or upgrade my own Squarespace site for commerce. Etsy is actually a lot harder than it looks. Granted, you have more discoverability on that platform, but I felt that just for starting out, it’s hard to compete with all the other cards out there. For example, people have their cards set up against a fireplace with holly branches and freakin’ hot cocoa with perfect lighting etc. Screw that, I just want to get the thing done! I found out that I didn’t need to upgrade my Squarespace site and can still have basic commerce functionality! I only have a few products after all, that are currently the same size & weight, so I don’t need a complex store. It was fun to build the store and put the descriptions in and learn new stuff about shipping (ALWAYS learning new things as a freelancer!).
Anyway, over time I’ll add more items to the store like mini comics. If you’d like some mini comics for stocking stuffers in the meantime, email me at mindy at mindyindy dot com.
OH and my times at the WinterFest at the Brooklyn Museum are now switched to Saturdays!
