Learn. Make. Sell. All about clutches.

Sellers list is up!

Please check out the SELLERS page.  It’s up with several sellers listed:  I’m ahead of my revised scheduled date of 12/5 ;)!

YAY you, the sellers who have submitted.  I thank you, for doing the work to ensure that my referrals know which clutches are made using my fine metal purse frames.  They are looking for a clutch that is made using one of the frames “trademarked to WhileBabyNaps.Etsy.com and Khuong LLC.” This lets them know they can buy with confidence that the clutch they receive is made with frames that are tested for lead and that have a special coating that will prolong the life of the clutch.

Here’s Erin rave review:

“omg! I can already tell a difference in my shop views! I thank you sooo much!!! I gotta get working on new listings!”

She’s nearly sold out, but here’s one of her remaining clutches that showcases her craftsmanship.

Elegance: Erin uses vintage kimono fabric (from Japan!) in her clutches. This one was made with my nickel-free purse frame(TM) with EleganceLock(TM).

I am waiting on several sellers on the details so check back to see more sellers listed.

Please remember that my referrals are specifically asking “where can I buy clutches made with your (nickel-free, antique brass, Duskcoat Gunmetal(TM) or GoldenLock(TM) frames?”

So I would advise that:

1. In your pic, though you may sell other clothing or accessories, to showcase a clutch or collection of clutches that is indicative of what you sell.  For example, someone looking for a silk bridal clutch will not find it at a store selling only cotton clutches.

2. Have your shop description be accurate in what you sell.

AND please remember my post about “taste uncertainty” and “concentration of stores” that data has proven to show to actually increase your business by being near sellers that sell similar things to you.  If you’ve forgotten (no quizzes given here 🙂 ) please read this post:

Lastly, I truly believe in helping other women learn a skill that they can develop into a business.  Because I’ve been there, trying to reenter the workforce looking for a part-time job with no luck.  So please be supportive of other women who are “doing it for themselves!” — to borrow a phrase from a song.

To that end, please respect each other’s unique work, style, and creative endeavors.  Please read that post with the link above.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but not here.   Please remember:

*Don’t compete on price.

*Offer something unique that stands out from others.

Now get to work!  🙂
