Can You Help Me Name My Etsy Shop?

I've decided to do away with my selling blog & instead put my energies into selling on Etsy.  However, I need a name for my shop & I am drawing a blank.  Can anyone suggest a good shop name for me?  I will be selling craft supplies ... mostly cross stitch, bobbin lace, quilting, & rug braiding supplies to start with ... & eventually I will offer some finished crafts as well.

If you are the first one to suggest a name & I choose to use it, I'll make it worth your while   : )

Sorry to hear that you're closing your selling blog - but on to bigger and better hey?!

I don't have a suggestion for you but I just wanted to wish you the very best of luck!

I like the name "Creative Expressions"!

Hi Shirlee,
Stitchin the day away~ I think is a good name for your shop.
Good luck on your new venture!

Why not the Easily Influnced Stitching Supplies. I have not posted before but i did put you in my favorites and the name always catches my eye. Good Luck.

Hmmm. Shirlee's......Stash Central..... Shirlee's Needle.....Shirlee's Supplies.... see a trend here? I always have a problem finding sellers but if their first name is used, easier to find. Shirlee Needle Arts. I give up. Sorry. Not good at this!!!

Oh Shirlee...I think an Etsy shop sounds awesome and will allow you a more broad customer base. I can't wait to visit it. :)
Hmmm, now for a name...What about "Crafty Me"
I am so not good at this, but I'll keep thinking for ya.

Well congratulations!! Wow....that was a quick move! You'll have me thinking of names all night now....perhaps that's a good thing since it has to be better than what's there now. I'm sure I'll be back for more but here's a few that sort of "popped" in my head:

Loose Threads
Stray Stitches
Shirlee's Stray Stitches
Stitches and Stuff
Shirlee's Stitches and Stuff
Shirlee's Folly

Since I haven't really explored Etsy I don't know how to search for you in it... so don't know how we find you. But since you will be selling more than cross stitch I like the previous suggestion of Shirlee Sells. It will cover everything you offer. And it is your great first name with the double e's like mine! Hugs!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I like Rosa's suggestion of Creative Expressions.

Also, don't take this the wrong way, but I wouldn't use your first name as it's easily mispelled. When people are looking online they need words which are obvious and not quirky. Also, you can't use apostrophes in web addresses so "Shirlee's anything" is out for me. I'm a bit of a stickler for correct grammar LOL.

Good Luck with the new shop.

Good Luck with your adventure!!!
Looks like you have a lot of names to choose from. I really like your blog name ~ you should somehow tie the two together.
