I can't help it. I really can't... I adore handmade goodies, and even if I can't actually buy all of the things that I covet.. I do love to look. One day, while browsing around it came to me that since I spend too much time there as it is. Some work, but mostly not. It would be a natural extension to offer up some of our goodies on etsy. I ran it by Dwyn, as she is my voice of reason most of the time. I don't always listen... In this case, she agreed with me.
We have set up a sister site on Etsy. We've hand selected a few (ok, a little more than a few) items that we are offering up for sale on our etsy site.
Things are of course a little different there, one of which being that etsy is all in US dollars. As a Canadian, I prefer to sell in Canadian currency - no choice here.
This will of course work out for all of our American friends and customers who will find it much easier to purchase in their own currency. No surprises.
Also, you cannot combine your purchases on etsy with purchases on beadfx.com. The inventory, order processing, and shipping is being handled completely differently.
More goodies will be added to the etsy site all the time. It won't be updated any where near as extensively as our main site, and you may find items on etsy that we have limited quantities on, or no ability to restock. It's easier to list those items there. We hope you enjoy the new beadfx etsy site!
Dwyn has also set up a new etsy site for the inspirations that she designs for us. This is in addition to her lampwork site as well.....See, we're feeling the etsy love!
