Diving Headlong!

In my last post, I was toying with the idea of starting an online shop.

I had lots of encouragement but no tips, except for one. Lol.

I guess blogshop owners aren't really willing to share their sucess stories.

So anyway,

I'm going to do it!

I've already created the blog! Its going to be called Plain Whimsy! (Such an awesome name right?? Like Waking Up Famous)

And basically I'll be selling handmade trinkets! Yay! And I'm working on building up a good stock before putting anything up.

Here's a sneak peek at what I'm doing! Hee! Excited much?

I am thinking of putting up my stuff on seeing as how the criteria for opening a shop there is that it has to be handmade or real vintage items.

In my opinion, its so much more affordable setting up there than Jipaban.
Jipaban charges you a lump sum for every 6 months where at etsy, you pay USD0.20 per item you listed online and 3.5% of sales transaction.

I don't happen to have a lump sum Jipaban is asking for to open a shop there. So I'm just going to stick by my online shop and move it to etsy if it takes off.

So yea, I'll let you all know when Plain Whimsy is ready!


  1. I have to agree with you regarding Jipaban. My friend was one of those that signed up and regretted, but then she is now stuck for 6 months because of the contract binding. I personally felt that Jipaban is just a hype, and if you read around, people's opinion towards them is really bad, except that it's only their staff that keep saying the product is "Really Good" on facebook and twitter.

  2. good luck on your online shop!!
