New Item in my Etsy shop

I've made this small soap with a silver soap dish and added it to my Etsy shop. Unfortunately I am now only shipping within Canada and the United States, due to the increase in postage.

I have been working away at my Pioneer Kitchen Scene but it is proving difficult to paint! I sanded it down, then ended up spraying it with a sealer in order to get the white paint to adhere. It should be ready for me to work on again soon.

Have a great day everyone!



  1. Hello from Spain: I wish you to have many sales. Keep in touch

  2. Postage is crazy expensive, isn't it (at least internationally)? Smallish swap gifts cost $12 to send. It takes a bit of the fun out of it. ;-) xo Jennifer

  3. I totally agree Jennifer! I would love to be able to ship internationally but Canada Post is ridiculous and keeps increasing the rates. They pretty much have a monopoly, but they are starting to lose business to private courier services like UPS and FedEx.
    I hope one day they'll have enough competition that they'll be forced to actually provide good service :P

  4. It is so annoyance with the expensive shipping. I have also opened a Etsy shop.

    What do I do to get followers?
    What do you I to get hold of potientiele customers?

    I see you already have many followers. Are followers future customers.


  5. Hi Wyrna,
    I got followers by following other people, and they followed me back. Also, people sometimes start following me, and I follow them back.
    I think having lots of followers increases your chance of making a sale. I also go on pinterest ( to promote my shop. I have one board on pinterest where I pin pictures from my blog and Etsy shop.
    You should apply to join the team MIDS. Click on community and then on teams, then enter MIDS in the search box. Or I could send you the link.
    This is for Miniature Artisans. When you have a new listing you can post it on the MIDS page, then if other Members of the team favorite your item or start following you, everyone who is following them will see that activity and they might also favorite that item or start following you. What is your Etsy shop name?


I love hearing your feedback. Thanks for leaving a comment!
