I Changed My Shop Name on Etsy

Most of you know me as a mosaic artist, but I also have a vintage store and a mosaic supply shop.

Recently Etsy offered a one time chance to change the names of our shops and I decided to do that with my supply store that is currently named Memories Mosaic Supply.

Originally, I wanted to keep the word "Memories" in each shop to continue the link of my name (Memories in Mosaics; Memories of Yesterday and Memories Mosaic Supply) but I realized later that it wasn't really the right term for what I wanted people to remember about my shop.

My new name will be "Discount Mosaic Supply".  I will be offering lower prices and a larger variety of items to my regular inventory of hand cut tiles. I plan to add glass gems, glass and ceramic tiles and more focal pieces over the next few months.

My Mosaic shop will be changing too.  I have decided to concentrate in other areas and will not be producing new pieces as much anymore.  I will still offer custom orders, but my inventory will be less overall.  I have come to the conclusion that I just can't sit at my computer as much as needed to keep all 3 shops promoted and right now my inventory for my vintage shop just keeps growing. 

My husband and I are in our mid 50's and all our children are grown and out of the home, so we wanted something we could do together.  Hunting through Estate Sales, Garage Sales and Thrift shops is a lot of fun for the two of us and something we both love to do, so my vintage shop won out over my mosaics.

I hope you will stop by and check out my shops.  I will give 10% off to anyone who reads my blog in each of my stores.  Just use coupon code "Blog10" when you check out.

I'm glad you and your husband can have fun with the vintage stuff. I'll miss seeing your mosaic creations, though.
