It is always wise to take a long hard look at your shop from time to time, and see if it is time for major overhaul.
In my case, I had already started with changing my banner around after my 6-month hiatus. But somehow, my original critters on a stark white background didn't do it for me, anymore.
So what did I do? Add a line of text to each and every one of my new critters. I am hoping to make them pop more in search results, and really give more of a feel for the inherent cuteness in each and every one of them.
Will it work? Time will tell. Most specifically, sales and treasuries will tell.
For now, I am liking it. Next big overhaul: the website.
