I’ve Retired

I did it!

COD Street Fair closed March 8, 2020

I definitely needed to show my art somewhere, so on January 1, 2021, I opened an Etsy shop. Of course I took a class on how to do that, and voila…here’s my Etsy Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JackieJacobsonArt

It is amazing how Etsy works. There are currently 3.14 million active sellers on the Etsy website. In my second week on Etsy I received an order. That is truly amazing. And the orders kept coming in. When I reached 100 sales, Etsy made me a top gift seller.

I also created a new website where I’ve listed the best sellers from my Etsy shop, and where I can offer my email friends special discounts, new introductions, and fun stories. Check it out here: https//:jackiejacobson.com

Then came the email last week, that the COD street fair will reopen in January 2022. Now I had to make a big decision. Do I want to wake up at 3:20 AM every Saturday and Sunday and work till 3:00 PM? I decided that it’s time to retire from that schedule. 

So if you’re in the Palm Springs area, please give me a call. My studio is open by appointment where I have all my artworks available for purchase at Special Street Fair Prices.  If you’re not in town, but have items that you’d really like, give me a call. I’ll definitely save you some money, and can now ship anywhere.

I’ve Retired from Street Fairs. YEAH!

    Some “retirement”! It sounds like you will be busier than ever!

    You’ll never retire, Jackie – just get used to that. As always, you will find a way to continue with your life-work.

    You are a creator (and an inspiration).

    Jackie – I’ve loved visiting your booth at The Street Fair and will miss seeing you and your husband there. Also bought lots of great “stuff”.
    You’re so talented. Good luck with etsy. You should do great without leaving your house except to go to the post office!
