The day to day life of a Start-Up Entrepreneur……..Custom Wedding Garter- Part 2

posted in: All Blog Posts 0

Picking up where I left off in Part 1

Opening a Wedding Garter eBay store wasn’t as easy as I was told it would be. So many rules and limitations. (Not to mention the high fees)

At that time I couldn’t make things look the way I wanted them to look.

So many rules and limitations. I had limited number of categories I could use to sort all my wedding garter styles.

the eBay stores were designed to be very simple. And want I was trying to do was not simple at all. I was told many times by Tech support .

“For what you are trying to do. You need a custom coded website” I couldn’t afford that.

I was building my business from home with leftover grocery money.

So I had to make an eBay store work. I learned a little bit of code from watching youTube videos. And did a few workarounds on my store. A lot, a lot of work. It was crazy.

At that time I didn;t know anything about photography. I was taking pictures of my wedding garters on a pink background. (My favorite color)

Laying my garter samples on the kitchen counter between two kitchen windows. praying I had enough sunlight. It was bad. Most days I didn’t have enough light.

Sometimes I went weeks without enough light.

I did get a few pictures I thought at the time was okay. ( I can now see how bad they were. ) But you can still how beautiful my wedding garter are.

You can see more pink background Wedding Garters on my old blog here

eBay soon discontinued eBay Stores. And eBay recommended eBay store seller move to Big Commerce.

As you can see I am not a blogger. (Not a good writer at all.) But I have to do it… Maybe I’ll get better. I have ordered a new book about writing content.

That is all for today. See you tomorrow.
