I really haven’t done much with the Etsy store since the first— for the most part it’s been a placeholder until I can finally get some products uploaded, which I hope to do this weekend.
The basic rule on Etsy is that you can sell finished crafts, crafting supplies, and vintage items (things over 20 years old). Oddly enough, I have stuff that will fit in all of those categories, so it’s time I started taking advantage of that.
I have more than just model horses that will fit in this category. I’ve got a bunch of model props (including the new fences from the Mini Whinnies set) as well as some scenic bases that I used for photos shows and display. I need to just empty out the art bins, take some photos and get them uploaded.
Rough Draft Categories: Realistic Model Horses, Fantasy Model Horses, Model Horse Tack, Model Horse Props, Model Horse Display Bases
It should come as no surprise that I have a LOT of these. Everything from tack making to prop making to prepped stablemate bodies meant for my ‘paint your own horse’ kits. Although Breyer seems to be doing a horrible job with their own kits, I think it might be worth it to throw one together to test the waters—I think their problem is a quality issue not an idea issue. *pokes supplies*

Vintage/Over 20 Years Old
20 years ago was 1992, which makes me feel horribly old… but it also makes all of the Breyer catalogs and hobby magazines that I have on hand perfect fits for this category! I just need to sit down and scan them all in (and start figuring out what I’m missing so that I can fill in the gaps for my own collection).
Rough Draft Categories: Breyer Model Horse Catalogs, Just About Horses Magazine, The Hobby Horse News, etc.
