I’m finally in the process of updating pictures. YAY! If you are looking at an item and the picture is missing, just wait a minute or two and it will pop back up. It just means I’m in the process of adding the new images to the listing.
As before the images will be color coded to help make browsing easier. Italian silver plate parts will have a blue background. Gold plated parts will have a pink background. Sterling silver will have either a purple background or a purple bar across (I’m not sure which yet :)). American made pewter will either be white background or another color. I’m still working on those. 🙂
As usual, if you have any questions, please let me know.
I recently found out my manufacturer discontinued the flat link chain I use on my less expensive rosaries. 😦 I can special order more, but the minimums are HUGE!
For now I am experimenting with the next size up. As soon as I am able I will add both options for my custom rosaries, but here is a picture so you can see the difference. They are very close in size, but the new stuff has a thicker look to it and is slightly larger. Once I add this option to the store I will take a better picture next to beads so you can see how they look. As always if you have questions please let me know. 🙂
Just a heads up to let you know I am in the process of testing the PayPal Express button located underneath the “Check Out” button in the shopping cart. It seems to be working ok now, so if you would like to use this to expedite your checkout, please feel free to try it. If you run into any issues, please let me know.
Phases 1 & 2 of the new store upgrade are now complete! YAY!! 🙂 All the pretty stuff is finally done!! Phase 3 will involve a lot of back end stuff including fixing that pesky PayPal button, retaking pictures, rewriting descriptions, SEO and adding more details to each listing. It will take a couple of months to get that part finished, so if you see anything wonky in the mean time please let me know.
Below is a picture of the new item pages. I was able to add a “short description” directly under each item title. Minimizing those and making them more concise will be a big part of Phase 3. Hopefully once finished they will help with any confusion regarding items used for custom rosaries versus items available for individual sale. If you have any questions or see any type-o’s or other errors, please let me know. 🙂 Thank you for your patience during this transition. It has been greatly appreciated!
Phase 1 of the new website design is complete now. Phase II has started which involves updating listings and adding short descriptions. I’m not sure how long this phase will take, but I will let you know once it’s completed, by posting about the new layout and where to find all the basic stuff. OK?
I am in the process of designing a new mobile friendly website. Google will start bumping me from certain web searches if my site isn’t converted to mobile friendly. My goal is to have it ready by late July or early August, but we will see ho wit goes.
For now things will be the same, but the new site will replace a lot of the text on my homepage with photos and links. If there is something you would like to see on the new site, please let me know and I will see if we can make it happen. OK?
Just a quick note to let you all know that my white rhodium lily set that had been discontinued by the manufacturer is now back in stock. I was able to negotiate a decent deal with them to make more for me. YAY!!
