Changed Etsy shop name

Good evening everyone ~ I want to say a heartfelt thank you for the encouraging words about selling my pieces. The ‘pep rally’ to give it a go and to keep creating really gave me the spark I needed.

I got bummed out when I created my Etsy shop Plum Cottage Creations two years ago, because soon after I did it, someone came into my blog anonymously saying I had to quit using the name because it was her name. Etsy had not flagged me to say I couldn’t use that name, even though this lady’s shop has the two words Plum Cottage also. So, that’s part of the reason for my disillusionment with the whole deal.

But, it’s a new day, and when I went to Etsy today I saw that I could change my shops name and I did to FlowerLady’s Creations. I did a search and found no shops with that name or the words. So, here I go.

I’ve got to change my banner to reflect name change, and I think I’ll also start a new blog with the same name, so I’ll be busy this week. Plus, I’m working tomorrow through Friday.

Now it’s time for a glass of wine, before fixing tacos for supper. My all time favorite comfort and happy meal.

Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

Congratulations, go go go! When we are happy with what we are doing, everything else will follow, and at least we are happy on the process, what else can we ask for!

FlowerLady, I am glad to read that you were able to change your Etsy shop name. Maybe it is easier than you assume right now to sell you lovely handcrafted creations this way. Just be persistent and see how it goes. You can always stop if it doesn't work out. Good luck!

Good luck with your shop. Hopefully, it won't be stressful, but rather a joy.

Best of Luck Flowerlady...I know new things are always nerve wrecking.

I am glad you got it worked out. I think Flower Lady's Creations would better identify with you-at least how I know you through your blog. I hate it when people post anonymously their little comments. I think if you are a big enough boy or girl to have something to say then say it as you and not anonymously. I've had some of that in the past. Mainly spammers.

Do you have a link to your Etsy page on this blog? I tried the picture Flowerlady's Creations and the link did not work. I wanted to see your pretties.
