Just thought I'd step up and say hello. My name is John and our site is listed below. We're looking forward to being here and to adding to the positive nature of eCrater. Feel free to look around and let us know your thoughts.

Like many here, we're learning and adapting to eCommerce as best we can. Very Happy

The store is not yet fully loaded but it will eventually be filled out. We try to specialize in general Scandinavian items we always have in stock and trust that as time goes by, clients return for more specialized items.

Thanks for your time! Wink

Welcome to ecrater. Just took a look at your store. I will be looking forward to more items.

Some problems you might want to take care of before you get it loaded.
Most of your pics do not enlarge and most are shown in package so those of us who have foggy memories of Scandinavian products or too young to remember the 70s, you might want to open the packages and photograph the actual items.

If you are using stock photos or from a catalogue, you run the risk of being labeled a drop shipper or affiliate seller. You will have to prove you aren't and also that you have rights from the manufacturer to use their photos.

The way you describe yourself you don't sound like an affiliate but someone could report you and then you will be relegated to the bottom of the list till you prove otherwise. Just a heads up to prevent a headache.

Thanks for the comments. I guess you're damned if you do and damned if you don't as far as pic's in package goes? Yes, I use stock photo's from manufacturers when I can, to show they are new. We're licensed to sell everything we sell so I'm always happy to fax someone an invoice, etc to show we sell with approval. Plus the only things we drop ship are Teak furniture pieces (again licensed to sell like most furniture Studio's do it) but we won't be posting those here as most of that sells in the Studio to walk-ins. I guess you haven't had time to see our regular website with shots of our Studio?

Funny thing is that when we started on eBay we did take most of our pics and people urged us to show the items in their packages, gift boxes, etc. They said they felt safer that way? The items didn't look so flea market like. Same goes with Amazon, that's very big with them actually.

Drop shipping works on $100 items but since we'll stay closer to the 19.95 items Made in Denmark, Sweden, Finland or Norway (and none made in China) I'm pretty confident that no one is going to think we're having it shipped from Denmark, etc. to them direct.

As for being reported, well that was a pastime for some folks on eBay which I sure hope hasn't infected eCrater. We passed NBC's scrutiny to get on The Today Show 4 times, I think we can handle ourselves and be a positive addition here.

Thanks for taking the time to look and give me your feedback. John

Welcome, welcome!! Your site looks great. I love your logo. It's great to have an experienced retail seller with nice prodeucts join ecrater.

BTW, do you sell lefse (sp?). I think it's a potato flat bread. An old boyfriend's mother used to make it and it was FABULOUS!!

Ann, you spelled it correctly. Very Happy

We have the frozen but I have two online sites I know of where they send it fresh to ya. I have them book marked on the Studio confuser and if my brain works tomorrow I'll PM with the sites. Don't want to upset the sponsors here with an addy. Wink

Re the pic on your home page. Is that dog leap frogging over the sheep?
