Friday, July 22, John will be marrying Erin Hay in Paris, Kentucky. Here it is Wednesday and we are dashing about to get packed and leave the house in order as we head to the rehearsal tomorrow.
With the business, we have received about 5 shipments of materials from three sources. Richard is starting to move beyond the sample garments to some serious construction. As he completes a new alb we are listing the original sample in his shop on Etsy, an online shopping mall. We have one listed so far but hope to have more the week after the wedding. We hope this will give us a little feel for the market, but at the least it helps us jointly work though the process of online sales.
I, Renee, have been selling on eBay for about 2 years so I have a little idea about working with writing a listing, shipping costs and managing Paypal. Richard had not given my eBaying much attention since I did it while he was away from home at work. Now the slower pace of Etsy is proving a good teaching medium for his current learning style. Here is his link if you want to take a look at his Etsy profile. His shop items are on the right-hand side of the profile page, and you can click it for a closer look:
Meanwhile, back at the wedding, all the siblings are going to make it for John. I have to confess to being a little excited about getting all our offspring together. I hope we remember to get a picture. In times past we just get so wrapped up in visiting that we forget the camera. I'll let you know later how it comes out.
