Would this bother you?

My shop sells items made from natural ingredients/supplies. I have kept the inventory pretty specific in this manner.

Now as I have gone through my supplies, I have a large number of metal jewelry findings and beads that I would like to sell off. These items do not fall within the parameters I set for this shop, but I do not wish to open another shop at this time to liquidate supplies.

Would seeing supplies in this shop turn you off?

Would you view it as a problem?

Thanks

Give them their own shop section and call them "destash" -- people understand that word and will know you're not getting into the supply business but are just selling off some of what you have. (A lot of buyers even use "destash" as a search term.)
I do not think it would be a problem if you had a seperate section for these items. Just move them around so your original items show up first, on the first page.

Thank you for your input, I appreciate the advice...
that is the best idea. we all understand destash.
Yep, destash...
Love, love, love...destash :)
I have some destash and after I list it, I move it to my last page. I have a shop section named jewelry making supplies. It's been working for me.
I had a few "how to" vintage leaflets that I sold through my shop. I never had any issues and I did sell all of them.
