Well, the Spinneyhead shop at Cafe Press has closed, as I’m certain that I’d end up paying the monthly fee because of low sales. Shame. Now I will have to go ahead and sell merchandise straight from the site, I guess. As I commented in a reply earlier-
As it was- when I started it- free to maintain, I set [the Cafe Press shop] up with an eye to the future. It was another way to draw attention to Spinneyhead and ensure there’d be a ready pool of merchandise when we hit critical mass and people wanted tchotchkes.
I guess Cafe Press have discovered they’ve got so many low volume shops being created that their server and traffic costs have rocketed and this is their way of trimming or fleecing what they consider to be dead wood.
