Hello! We are back with the third installment in our series called How to Have a Successful Destash! We’re breaking a destash down into its most basic steps from planning to shipping. This week, it’s all about listing fabric on FeelGood Fibers! Let’s get started!
Looking for some step-by-step guidance to the listing process? We’re here for you! We’ll walk you through the entire process of listing fabric from stat to finish in 10 easy steps.
In the top left corner head to “Log in/Register” to log in to your FeelGood Fibers account. Then from the dropdown menu select “Store Manager”.
In your store manager, hover your cursor over “Listings”, and click on “Add New.” This is how you will add your new listing.
Click on the box with the grey mountain to upload your photos. We suggest 1-3 photos that clearly show the color, print and texture of a fabric to the buyer. Need more guidance for how to take photos that sell? Read How to Have a Successful Destash Part 2: Photos
Add a title for your listing. Getting as specific as possible will help buyers know exactly what you are selling. In a few short words, be as descriptive as possible. For example, if you are listing a yard of Rifle Paper Co. fabric, add a title such as “1 yard of Rifle Paper Co. Les Fleur in Rayon.”
Name your price. Be sure to include the cost of shipping in your listing price! Want advice for how to determine the price? Consider your fabric’s desirability, condition, and how quickly you’d like it to sell.
From the drop down menu, indicate what category of fabric your listing falls into — quilting cotton, rayon, canvas, organic, linen, etc.
Select the colors that can be found in your fabric. Choose all that apply.
How much fabric are you selling? You can select from yardage, scrap bags, bundles and smaller cuts.
Add descriptive tags. These are the search terms that buyers can use to find your fabric. You can add any descriptive tags that apply: novelty, plaids, dots, floral, etc.
In the short description you can let your inner quilt-shop owner shine! Describe the fabric to buyers in any way you’d like. Talk about specific details, particularly if there are any irregularities or damage to the fabric.
We hope that these help you in getting started with the destash process! Stay tuned for next week, when we teach you how to set up your account and destash shop! Have a specific question for us? Leave it in the comments below!
