I've been thinking about this for a while and I've decided that the time has come to change the name of my component shop THEA too. When I opened the shop 15 months ago I decided on the name 'THEA too' as it seemed appropriate for an extension of my jewellery shop 'THEA jewellery'. Little did I know that it would take off the way it has and actually become the bigger part of my business so that now, the 'too' doesn't seem quite so fitting.
I also think the link only really works within the confines of Etsy and is somewhat abstract as a standalone name. Since I may be doing more shows and will shortly be shipping my first consignment to a bricks and mortar store I feel the name needs to work in the wider market.
So with this in mind I have changed the shop name to 'THEA Elements' - still with the link to my jewellery shop but hopefully more self contained and descriptive.
Some of you may have noticed that I've been playing with new shop banner designs recently and as part of this change, both shops have new banners in the same style and format but with a different colour...what do you think...? I hope you like them..
I'm not planning to change my avatars since these are widely used and recognisable across many social media platforms and for the most part haven't been linked to my banners anyway.
It will take me a little while to phase out business cards (I didn't want to put off the change any longer) and I will be redesigning my blog badge shortly.
Don't worry if you have THEA too bookmarked on Etsy as all links and favourites will automatically carry over and redirect to the new shop url...I made sure to check that with Etsy first and I have it in writing!
At this point I would just like to say a very, very big thank you to everyone who had supported THEA too and I look forward to sharing my new designs with you in the guise of THEA Elements.
