two shops in one

I've been thinking about splitting my shop into two separate shops. Basically, right now my fookaDESIGNS shop has two sections illustrations and paper goods. I was thinking maybe I should have fookaDESIGNS shop for my cards and paper goods and add another shop for fookaILLUSTRATIONS.

hmmmm...I've been thinking about it for a long time now and I'm still not sure what to do. SO, I thought what could be better than to ask YOU what you think?! Do you have an Etsy shop? Do you have multiple Etsy shops? If you've gone from one shop to two or more I'd love to hear what you thought about the transition. If you've got one shop and you've thought about making it into two but you don't think it's a good idea I'd love to hear from you too.

Well, I did it! I added a second shop. I think this will give a more cohesive look in each shop and better organization.....I hope! :)

The new shop is fookaILLUSTRATIONS where you will soon find original digital illustrations. Of course you will still be able to find cute cards and fun coupon books at the fookaDESIGNS shop. During the transition ALL prints in the fookaDESIGNS shop are on sale, buy 3 get 1 FREE!

I decided to separate my art and cards into two shops about a year ago. I'm glad that I did. I guess I like order and it feels more cohesive to me. The nice thing is you can have your shops linked, so maybe someone viewing your art will pop over to your cards, and vice versa. I kept "smashgirl" in the new shop name. I did have to work on adding more items to both shops at first, they seemed a little empty. Etsy is talking about updating seller features for people with multiple shops where you can oversee both together. I look forward to this!

Thanks so much for the feedback Smashgirl. This is really helpful. It's also nice to hear that Etsy is talking about combining access for multiple shop owners! Thanks for sharing!
