The Ron Philbeck/Michael Kline workshop here on the Cape a few weeks ago was inspirational, and not just because those two Carolina guys make great pots. I'd been thinking about creating an Etsy story for some time, but it all looked waaaaayyyy too complex. Ron and Michael both have such stores and talked about them at the workshop, how they managed them, how they kept inventory, packed and shipped pots, all of that.
So that was one of the main things I took from the workshop. Once back from NCECA a week ago, that was one of the things I wanted to get to. So I did.
With a longish and extremely encouraging IM consult with Ron, I got the store up. Go to Etsy.com and look for Hatchvillepottery in the shops. Tell me what you think. I still haven't got it all figured out (it's a whole new language), but there are a bunch of pots up there and they look pretty good. Take a look.
And many thanks, Ron and Michael.
Pots are like people in so many ways.
