Girlscantell wonders whether it's better to create high expectations or low ones as far as business is concerned.
High expectations is a problem for etsy, I notice. Because they go with all this community rhetoric, all this making a living by doing handmade stuff, folks start expecting things from them that they wouldn't expect if they said, we have web space, and flash toys. You sell things. It's all in how you say stuff.
That's why I'm more of a you pays your money, you gets your jewelry type. I can deliver that. I can't deliver earrings that make you ten times hotter[I've never seen you, and the sort of earring that looks best on someone changes with face shape, skin tone,etc], or bobby pins that cure flyaway hair, but I can make jewelry the best that I can and ship it pretty fast.
