LOVE you store! Ok, so how about making some little owl earrings to go with that CUTE owl pendant??

Amantha said...

I love your store, too. I can't get over the stitch markers - too cute. How about an assortment of cupcakes as stitch markers?

Annie said...

Your store is great! Your photos are awesome. That owl is really cute, maybe add some squirrels, hedgehogs, acorns and other woodland themed charms :)

KieutiePie said...

I don't know what you can do to improve your shop. I love you.

Hey coonies! I love you. Yep.

I love you.

KieutiePie said...

HEY. What you should do is sell cube Easter Eggs. That would be AWESOME.

I love you

Connie said...

cute idea. but im not going to do holiday themed items anymore. i didnt sell not ONE chocolate charm!

Katie Goin said...

I love your store, I think all your stuff is just adorable.

Two things I'd love to see are more sushi items and acorn items. I collect acorns, so it would be really cool to have to acorn charms.

I can't wait to see what you'll make next!

Everything in your store looks amazing.I am no expert, but I thought about it, and this is what I came up with and hopefully these ideas would help improve your shop which is very good already.

1.How about using up all 5 of the photo's showing various angles..perhaps even showing them on a manequin head.

2. I love rings, and I did not notice any rings in your shop. They would sell very well.

3.Maybe you could also offer different alternatives to ball chain, I heard that a few people dislike that kind of chain.

4. The owl pendant is so adorable. I love owls, and I also love elephants, and flying birds, and octopuses those would be cool as well.

5.I like studs, but I noticed you do not have many drop earrings , maybe you could add similar styles to the stud ones with drops as well.

6. Do you package your items specially? If you have any photo's people like that as well.

7. Charm bracelets seem to be very popular.

I hope this helps.

Pulp Sushi

Andi said...

How about some bacon charms? Everybody loves bacon!
I agree with kerilove about making drop earrings.
Imagine some long, crispy, cute & crunchy bacon earrings, they would be cool! ;)

Michele Maule said...

As always tinyfig love your little shop!
I saw this really great Japanese PSA for eggs, and there were all these cute little eggs flying around...maybe you could do some eggs :)
Anyway, I hope you reach your goal. Good luck!

You could add saltwater taffy earrings to your shop.

Taleri said...

OH and as I said before, add puppies to your earring collection.

Taleri said...

You could add red licorice..

Taleri said...

I actually think its a plus that you dont have those super long dangly earrings. I dont wear hooks and I have a shortish neck. Have you tried to find short cute items? There are very few options.

I do second the idea of expanding your sushi earrings though. That would be cool.
So would hedgies.

Taleri said...

How about tiny soda cans for earrings?

I have nothing negative to say about your shop. It is so refreshing and adorable. Also, your name...my son used to say "Mom, I got a fig"..meaning he had an idea. He was enthralled with the character Figment at Disney World so your name is special as well. Keep up the great work.

esque said...

I don't think my original post took, but I love your store and it would be so awesome if you made your cute toasts into big pillows!

KieutiePie said...

Awww I loved your chocolate charms. ={

I'm so sad I lost the contest though! I had to go eat dinner with my family. Boo ={ Well... Ok I shouldn't say that. Family time is more valuable, but dammit I wanted to win =D

Great contest idea and a great treasury theme!
