I was thinking of closing my shop, but then i decided to maybe open another shop to make my existing shop more coherent??
Can you tell me what you think? I have sooo many different things in my shop, looks very confused.
I want to keep my purses in existing shop, and take all the other things to the new shop. Do you think it will help?

In my opinion, I think all your items do go well together. I don't see why you would need to open another shop unless you ended up with a TON of one item and then you wanted to open a shop just for that item. But for now I think it is fine!
Cute items by the way! :)

I think that everyone is pretty much related. They're all fabric right? You should maybe try adding a shop headline that specifically defines what you are selling or at least the general theme if you can't sum it up in the character limits.
You have a distinct style, so personally I see no reason to open a second shop -- but that's just my opinion. I think you should work on maybe the titles too, mix them up a bit to gain exposure in more keyword searches !

I would say to keep it all in one shop. The items really aren't *that* different (they're all fabric based and have a similar style) and the photos blend together well. Also, consider that opening a second shop is, literally, twice the work when it comes to promotion (two facebook pages, two twitter accounts, etc). Besides, unless you make a LOT more items, splitting your shop will leave you with barely a page worth of merchandise in each shop... not much to look at once someone is finally in your shop!
I would just use your shop sections to keep things organized for someone who is looking for something specific (and link to the shop sections in your item descriptions to make it easier for people to navigate your shop) and that should help!

Your style shows in all your products, so I think your shop works well. I started mine with dream catchers and dream journals. It only got cluttered when I started to explore other jewelry styles and listing cards, scrapbooks, etc. so I made a second shop. If you start expanding into even more home decor, and even more purse styles, then it might be easier to split, but I think they go well together. :)

I also think you should keep it all together. One reason is that you don't have enough items for 2 shops. I know there is no magic number, but with less than 50 items in a shop, I don't think you get the same traffic as a larger shop.

Like everyone else, I think your lovely items go very well together.... maybe if you rearranged your shop so that like-items were all side-by-side, it would make it feel even more cohesive. :) I, too, have different types of items.... and after I rearranged things I feel better about my shop.
