Variations on a theme

Four collages using the same colour palette and some lovely old materials including part of the front of an Edwardian costume, little pieces unpicked from antique quilts and mixed in with old French printed linen.
I have just put these on Etsy but you will have noticed my prices have gone up a bit. This is because Etsy is charging much more than it used to for commission and then there is the listing fee, the VAT on the fees and then the  bill is in dollars and the pound is weak. I have thought about giving up selling through Etsy altogether and just continuing to sell direct to customers in my studio and at workshops but you will see that I won't be stocking my shop quite so regularly. I know lots of people sell through Instagram without any fees but it kind of spoils Instagram when it all becomes about things for sale rather than visuals and lifestyle.
