The Crochet Buddies Online Store is now officially established. Gone are the days of simple shop layouts on Crochet Buddies!!! (Can you tell this is a very big deal? 😉 )
Long story short, I wasn’t satisfied with the overall layout of the Products For Sale page. It worked as a temporary solution to having an online store and website/blog all in one, but there was no shopping cart button, no way to checkout, no way to zoom or select different product options. The whole thing relied on email correspondence to make a purchase. Bleh.
BUT NOW, we have a store, and it’s epic! It’s been my latest “project” for the last couple days (which also means I’m super behind on everything else 😛 ). All the pages and links and so on are finally polished up, and all products listed at the store are available to purchase immediately!
So where is this new online store? Click on the photo below!
If you want to go to the store specifically in future, you need only remember there’s a dash between Crochet and Buddies in the web name.
Additionally, I’ve re-programmed the Products For Sale button (on the main page and on the menu) of this very site, so from now on clicking said buttons will take you straight to the store. As for the categories still in the dropdown menu, those are for purposes of referencing what all is in the store before going there, and what will be there in future.
What do you think?! I’m extremely happy with how it turned out. The functional aspects, the ease of use (for everyone), the professional look… it’s definitely there to stay. 😀 (For purposes of clarity: This does NOT mean that all posts and news and updates and things are transferring over to that website. The site features the store, and only the store. Everything else will remain here.)
AND THE ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE NOT DONE YET. This is one of quite a few announcements. The overarching Very Important CB Announcement is still to come (once I get cough yet another project finished). In the meantime, have fun looking around the store! If you see anything you like, don’t keep it on your wish list for too long, because it won’t be there forever. 😉
That’s all for now! Stay tuned for lots more to come!!!
