Power in numbers

Over 8 years of experience in the boutique customs world has shown time and time again there is a lot of power in numbers!

If you're a designer, or re-seller, and you're selling resells, or boutique customs on Etsy or Ebay we would like to invite you to use the Search Term "DM" in your title.

 We believe this will help MANY MORE people find your items as there will be a common search term and thus, you will all be easier to find, searched on a regular basis from buyers, AND readers of this blog! As our blog grows in popularity, this will benefit you, the designers and resellers too! 

Whether you're an indie designer (not part of any teams, or groups, or launch groups)
or whether you are a member of several groups and teams already;  
We think this will help you a great deal!

The Benefits of using DM in your titles will not only help buyers find you easier and search out your listings more often, but...We will be regularly promoting those designers and items found on Ebay and Etsy on our blog, and social media platforms with "DM" found in their titles (DM stands for Designing Minds) 

So Start Adding those TWO simple letters DM to your titles!!
(Like we said, we're bringing back old school custom boutique... 
and this is a tried & true method of uniting designers so buyers can find them easier, search for customs regularly AND get MORE for their items... 
the more views, and watchers... this equates to more money for the sellers!)

Designing Minds Blog (Part Deux) now powered by Goosie Girl

Coming Soon!

Designing Minds Blog
(Part Deux) 

Powered By Goosie Girl
(and friends)

In case you haven't heard, the original blog that started it all is making a comeback
and will soon be under new management... ala Goosie Girl!

Goosie Girl has acquired the rites to the Designing Minds Blog!!
 Yessssssss, the blog that started it all in the custom boutique world!

 Designer X and Goosie have made an agreement to have it officially change hands.  I am so stinkin excited about this!! I just love Designer X  to pieces, she is a class act,  and a very talented designer in her own rite.
We hope to build on the foundation she laid back in the heyday of Ebay Boutique, when the handmade and custom boutique community was being birthed. With the resurgence of "boutique groups" and launches, we've seen on social media sites lately, Goosie thought it the time was ripe with opportunity to try & bring back the AWESOMENESS of the old school boutique days via the blog, once fondly called the "DM blog"

We are so looking forward to this! Whether you're an indie designer, a member of a boutique group, a buyer, a boutique custom buyer who then resells, a photographer, model, pageant organizer,  textile designer, fabric/trim/craft supplier, or graphic designer... 

You will WANT to be seen on the brand spankin' new version of the Designing Minds Blog! We are bringing old school custom boutique back... JACK! :)

We hope to be up and running officially after the 1st of the New Year 
(that is, if the Mayan end of the world prophecy doesn't happen.. haa haa)
