Hi Charlotte, I love your designs and your story.
The challenges is how to move beyond your family and friends into paying customers. its tough when you first set up, because people/customers have to be looking for you to find you…and if they don’t know what they’re missing they don’t know where to look. Plus, you have a very specific design offer, that will mainly be off one buyers.
So I can’t help but think moving on to a platform that generates a lot of buyer traffic, plus maintaining your own sites might be a good way to work.
Have you taken a look at Etsy – it feels like a good fit for you.
and also maybe presenting to a few selected retailers that fit your aesthetic and could also tell you story. you can then create some cross promotions between the different platforms which can really work.
Hope that is helpful 🙂
