Well I have to say I was really pleased with my Vistaprint website right up to the point I added the shop page.  I wish now I had gone with a specific shop package and linked the two sites, which is probably what I will end up doing.  I have found the the shop page, does not remove purchased items, so as my items are pretty much unique, I don't have a second in stock and an item could be bought twice.  Also the website itself does not tell you if anything has been purchased, it is paypal which tells you someone has paid.  


The other down side is each item has to be uploaded individually and edited individually, this is making it very time consuming. 


I have just made the decision to remove the shop page and to Just sell through Etsy  as I already have a shop there.

Uploads to shop page quite slow, but steady.  Sorry about some of the picture quality, I am a Jewellery maker, not a photographer. :-)  if you need more photograps please let me know.

Well today I have had good go at photographing some items returned from Sophies Attic.  Leather, Sterling Silver and Lampwork necklaces photographed and uploaded onto the website.

Unfortunately the gift shop that had been selling my Jewellery has decided to concentrate more on the coffee shop angle, and will no longer be selling local crafts.  Good news is that the Website shop is now up and running, I just have to photograph every item and get it listed in my shop.  Please bare with me while this is happening, there is so much stock and I also have to retake all the photographs having had an accident with my sd card.  


Keep checking back, more stock will be added regularly.
