13 and Market

Remember when I sent off some feather drawings to be put into an online shop? These are a few of the ones I sent. [The numbers were for my benefit, and don’t appear on the originals!]

Well, the shop, 13 and Market is open for business! Yay! Another place to buy my feathers. These ones are unique to 13 and Market, [however, there are other ink feathers available in my Etsy shop].

I was curious to see how Nikki was going to display the feathers. On Etsy I can put each feather separately, with five photos and individual descriptions. That wasn’t possible on 13 and Market, so I love the way she shows each feather and allows you to zoom in on details.

Jump over to the new store and have a look. There are the most amazing moose heads for sale too!

A new project

In October a customer, Nikki, bought one of my feather drawings through Etsy. A little while later she approached me about an order for her new online store! And today I sent off the drawings…..How fantastic is that?!

I have created a series of ink feathers for exclusively for her; they will not be available on Etsy. I used a fountain pen and water soluble ink to draw them. Because the ink smudges with water I was able to make the downy part of the feather much softer and fluffier than I have been able to get with non-soluble ink pens.

[The purple stripes are sticky strips that allowed me to number them to allow Nikki to make a selection.]

Working with Nikki was the spur to changing my Etsy shop name.

The shop is Thirteen and Market. It is going to be opened in January, and I will certainly let you know when it does. But there is also Facebook and Instagram pages, where Nikki is showcasing items in the shop. I have to say, I thought my feather drawing looked very handsome in its gold frame on Facebook.

Interesting to see how one interaction, in this case on Etsy, can lead to something wider.
