I just listed a Skull Nutcracker on Etsy.  It is the second of Brandon’s new Skull design and it is numbered and signed by Brandon.    The Skull Nutcracker turned out beautifully.  Here are a couple pictures of it…

We are building our Etsy Store and will be listing our original items on Etsy as much as possible.  The fees are much lower on Etsy (3.9%)  than Ebay (9%).   Ebay’s fees are almost laughable anymore.  My least favorite is the “Final Value Fee on Shipping”.  I haven’t yet figured out why they are putting a fee on my shipping costs when they are not providing me with any real shipping services.  I have read  they began adding this fee because buyers love the Free Shipping option and this way more sellers would offer free shipping.  However, free shipping isn’t really a feasible option when shipping overseas and you charge actual shipping to the winning bidder.  Shipping is already a big enough expense and I just think it is greedy and wrong for Ebay to be adding to the millions they make by adding this ridiculous fee.

If you are not familiar with the Etsy check it out.

Brandon has completed a Skull Nutcracker and I will be listing it on Ebay today.  It is numbered 003 and has some differences from the first two he created.  This one has a wood pin and he added a recess to hold a nut.

Also new for Ardoria Studios, we have created an Etsy Store.  Currently you will find an Ardoria Studios Bear Figural Nutcracker and some other items.   Stop by and check out our listings.  We really like that Etsy is all about handmade and also that it’s not just about selling import items.  There are really creative items on this site and you can spend a lot of time looking at it all.
