I cannot run two shops, I have decided. Recently I read a great article and took from it how important the act of editing your product line is. This is almost a relief, because as wide ranging and plentiful my ideas and prototypes are, it's unrealistic to include everything in my stores. As a result I realized that I need to streamline my online selling experience, edit my stock, and make some changes to my storefront. Part of this includes choosing one store to represent my artistic efforts, not two or three to accomodate the multiple tangents my work seems to follow.
So I've started the process of closing my two existing shops and opening a new one. This act ties into a whole slew of other personal growth and identity recognition activities I have engaged in recently. My house has been reorganized, stripped of all the junk that clutters my self expression in my living space. It feels... fantastic!
The new shop should be announced in early October. October is the best month, it's my birthday month.
