    Prefrences & Advice

    Hi im trying to an order on stock based on what i have read on here the forum and doing a bit of research on other shops.... whats the prefrence clear stamps v wooden ones.... I know clear stamps can generally be cheaper but a crafty pal was telling me when it comes to cleaning they can deteroriate ! I want to buy quality items to last so customers keep coming back. Also chalk sets ? I have seen these but have never personally used them and have not seen them on many crafting projects are these any good? Also acetate , i really dont have a clue what this is haha ! i have gone onto my website admin panel and look at what customers search ! And finally - i can get stencils etc what other crafting accessories are needed for the stencils.? Any help would be grateful. Thanks

    Advice on how to run a great shop!

    Hello Everyone I was just wondering if anyone could give me advice and pointers, and kinds of products people buy ! I have a good idea, but like anything you need alot of money to get started so im buying little bits to build stock up. I am new at having my own online store, its very hard work, late nights etc ! Its still being modified and tweeked , and products being uploaded ! Obviously i can not exactly match the big shots when it comes to pricing as the more you buy the more you get off... but i have found some great products which i will upload that they dont have ! yayayyyyy any advice on anything from products to service, would be great ! let us know what kind of service you would expect.!
