So the website is finally open and we had 9 sales in our first hour which is fab, just thought I would talk you through what on earth I am doing with it...
So essentially we are an on-line multi store where sellers can host their own shop with no fees to join and no limitations on the quantity of items or how long they are available to the buyer etc. I have spent 2 years finding the less commercial and more bespoke products and services, so that I could create our site and have it become the best place to shop that you could ever wish to stop by ;)
.....so far we have 176 sellers and over 1540 products
Our point of difference from the other sites providing stores is that we are by invitation only. This means our focus is on quality not quantity with less searching through the not so impressive items, as every search will result in highlighting only the fab stuff ;)
Our mission statement is that " We aim to attract an elite community of fine product makers and suppliers and become the best on-line multi store in Australia"
Each seller gets their own unique URL that they can use to take people straight to their own store front and on that they can personalise it with slideshows, logos, profile pics and banter to make it custom suited to their style (as above)
THEN from the store front page you can click on view all sellers products and they have a store with as many pages or product as their heart desires, we have wish lists, wedding lists and you can sign in by all your social networking tools.
I think we have created a pretty special place to shop and hope you do too.. if you know any talented people that sell items you think would fit our profile.. send them over to www.downthatlittlelane.com.au so they can apply xx
