I've been toying with the idea of a new online store for a long time now. My Etsy page has done me proud over the last couple of years, but I've struggled with the lack of control I have over the page structure and overall design.
When appearing at London's Go Global Conference late last year, I was impressed by Mary Tan White's talk about her company moonfruit as an alternative to Etsy. As a result, I've spent the first week of this year designing my own fledgling online store The Hand Drawn Creative Shop (keep it simple). Now I have all my stock on offer in a clean, HDC branded environment (great!)
