It's time for a cinnamonstics website!

For many many reasons it's time to branch off from etsy a bit and start my own website!

One of the main reasons is etsy fees they add up quick!

The other is people who shamelessly copy other's designs, grrrr!

So all that said I'm hoping to get up and running just after Christmas :O)

I'd love some input, feedback on what you would like to see on the web site. Suggestions on what makes a website easier to navigate, easier to input information.

Maybe comments on what make them difficult to navigate.

We're sooo excited about this!!! Thank you to everyone who has helped our little business flourish!

Hip hip Hooray! I would love to view more of your items and I love this bracelet. Really wish I would have made it to Blissfest. Hope you do offer this in the future.
When I shop on-line I like it when I go back to exactly where I was in the shopping list, not get sent to the top again -- just my two cents! Take care. :)

If its not too much trouble, keep the wish list feature on your site. Its great when it comes time to give gifts.

Also maybe categories such as rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces etc. I have more ideas but for now I'm out of time.

Yay! Congrats on your own website! I am sure it will be very successful.

I think ordering would be made very easy if everything on each product page was in a drop-down menu. For example: fonts, chain size, birthstone dangle, additions (adding an extra tag or dangle, etc). This would leave a text box for only what is to be stamped on the piece. I think this would make ordering very straight-forward and probably easier for you too!

How exciting!! I wish you all the best with the new site. As for features - I love being able to put things in my cart and then go back to where I was before without having to scroll down to where I was before. Will you plan to accept major credit cards in addition to PayPal? I second Jessie1999's comment allowing a customer to customize their jewelry through a series of drop down menus. Will cut down on the amount of narrative for you go to through when you receive the order. Serene or crisp colors for the website itself are good as bright colors tend to make things difficult when one browses. Do you plan to have music playing on the site? If so, could there be an option to turn it off if customers do not prefer music? Again, I'm so excited for you and can't wait to see the store when its unveiled after the holidays!
