Reorganized 1000 Markets Shop

1000 Markets

I spent some time recently thinking about how my web sites should be organized. It finally occurred to me that when people shop, they are not looking for Chain Maille or Kumihimo or what ever other technique I might have. They are looking for a bracelet or necklace or set. Well, that is the conclusion I came to.

What do you all think? Agree ? Disagree ?

How do you shop for jewelry? Do you shop for jewelry? Now that is an important question.

Anyhow, I made some new "collections" in my 1000 Markets shop; bracelets and necklaces. Now, I can put each piece in the appropriate collection. They can go into more than one collection and therefore stay in the Kumihimo or Chain Maille group.

So all that set me thinking even more. (Getting tired here) So, I made one more collection. New items. That will be a revolving group of new items that will be removed as newer items come up.

Well, after all that thinking we'll see what effect it might have on sales.

  1. I do as much of my shopping online as possible. I like there to be categories so I can pick what I want to look at, I want it to be simple to navigate, and I also want the opportunity to see everything without having to do a lot of clicking if that's what I'm interested in at the moment. I think the way you have set up your shop is great - I can look at everything or only something specific - and it's simple!
