Name My Etsy Shop

A. I am procrastinating on getting my etsy shop going, partly because I can’t decide on a name. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, which makes it hard for me to make a decision. Because, you know, what if I make the wrong decision?

B. Firstborn wanted to show me how to make a poll. (Incidentally, he turns 12 today!!!!) He’s pretty good at this computer stuff. If he had grown up in the 80s, he would’ve been the kid who painstakingly typed in pages and pages of code and then waited for hours for it to download onto a cassette tape so he could play Pong. Only to discover that he had omitted a keystroke somewhere and had to start all over. Oh, wait, that was Craig.


C. There's a poll on the top left sidebar to let you name my etsy shop. If I get a sufficient number of votes, let’s say a minimum of 50, I will use the name that wins the vote.

I will leave the poll open for approximately 48 hours, until about 3:30 CST Friday. Go vote!

The giveaway still ends Thursday (tomorrow) at 11:59 pm CST. Go enter!

I voted for HomebodyMarket. I like HomebodyMarketplace as well. HomebodyEmporium makes me think of the old drugstore, Drug Emporium. Emporium is a cool word though!

I like all of them, but Homebody Marketplace was my choice. Emporium makes me think of cheap 5 and dime stores. :o)

I voted for HomebodyMarket, but I like Marketplace too. It just seemed like there'd be more than one shop in a marketplace and Emporium- nah. Your stuff is more MARKET.

ps. LOVEEEE the new layout- did you do it yourself or who gets the creds?

I voted for HomebodyMarket too. Good name. Can't wait to see the new shop :0)

I'm the odd one out, I voted for Homebody Emp.
But when I wanted to check the results--it said it couldn't find the page.

I just voted on Homebody Marketplace, but that seems to be the least popular at the moment:( ~I still like it!

I LOVE ETSY, it is hard on Etsy because your name is set in stone! There is no turning back unless you cancel you account. ~I found this out the hard way!

I can't wait to see your shop when its all set up!

Happy Birthday first born!

I'm casting my vote for HomebodyMarketplace.

I went with HomebodyMarket although I am always a fan of things like HomebodyHideaway or names that begin with the same letter....I know it's corny! Looking forward to seeing your thrifty finds!!
