Today, with the help of one of my awesome coworkers, I learned more about my page. I was able to change the background to something more “shabby chic,” and I learned all about widgets. This new adventure is turning out to be a lot of fun.
Oh, and I sold my first Esty item. I shipped it yesterday. I did learn some new things about shipping: DO NOT go the UPS store. I couldn’t find the right size box at the Post Office and I was in a big hurry to get the item in the mail. UPS is expensive! Both the box and the shipping were way more than I intended to pay. So, I went the USPS site and ordered several different size boxes – they send them to your home for free. In the future, I will not go to UPS, even in desperation. It is just not worth how much it cut into my profit. I would rather scour for a free box (and take a little extra time) than pay the UPS fees.
Here is a picture of the antique frame I sold. I hope the purchaser enjoys it!
