For those who love hand made lace.
As I spend my Birthday money I'm am stuck once again as the crazy high prices of some lace books. The two Milanese books by Patricia Read are now going for $750 - $850. I don't know of any lace maker with that kind of extra cash!I can't help but think that there are people in our community with books or such that would gladly sell or exchange items for far less than the $$$ rare book sellers are charging. Or am I the only one?
We can now use this DISCUSSION as the base for notices about lace related items you are buying or selling. I will leave it up as a permanent DISCUSSION. You can post lace related stuff you are selling, or books etc that you are looking for. Our members who have websites or lace businesses can also post notes here. And this is a change from the previous policy of no advertizing at all.
I have resisted using this site for advertizing up until now, but I suppose there is some point in posting useful information. For a seller to post twice a month is reasonable, possibly weekly also. Posting selling notices daily is obnoxious. I will delete obnoxious advertizing.
Just posted the pattern for the last round of Evelyn's Doily!: https://www.etsy.com/listing/215460881/tatting-pattern-pdf-evelyns-...
Do any of you have an Etsy or other ecommerce Web site to sell your lace? Which one do you use, and why did you choose that one? Any other helpful info you can share?
I am interested in this thread... I am lacemaker for 20 years now, and I have some pieces of lace made to be published on lace magazines that I would like to sell. So, if finally you decide that we could publish them here, I will be interested in knowing the rules for doing it. Thank you Lorelei.
