The biggest differences are that the product pictures are bigger (a good thing!) but reviews and polices are now on the front page (which seems unnecessary to me and distracts from the products).
Sellers have a choice of using the new, huge!, “cover pictures”, as I have done, using their old banners (which do no show at all on mobile devices) or having no cover or banner.
I am trying the cover picture for now on this shop. My Antique Dog Prints vintage shop on Etsy still has the old small banner up. I will wait a while to see how people respond to the changes before settling on one or the other for good.
After two years of trading as Tin Teddy Vintage, I have now rebranded my Etsy vintage prints shop with the new name of Antique Dog Prints.
I already owned the dot com for this name, and as I sell over 90% vintage dog prints, it made sense to change the shop name. I will still stock a few other animal prints now and then but it will definitely be mainly dogs, as before.
I currently have 53 original, antique and vintage dog prints on offer in the shop and will continue to add more. I have a very large collection of prints as I have been collecting for many years. My house, however, is very tiny so I am only able to display a few. Hence the decision to sell my significant surplus prints so they can go to new homes where they can be enjoyed.
If you are looking for a particular breed, do let me know as I may have it, waiting to be listed.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Tin Teddy Vintage in 2015 and I hope that Antique Dog Prints continues to thrive in 2016.
[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] T [/dropcap]he Tin Teddy Vintage shop on Etsy now accepts the Etsy Direct Checkout which means you can easily pay for your dog prints with your credit card. Obviously I still accept Paypal too.
And an extra bonus is print lovers can use their Etsy Gift Cards in the shop too!
I am currently restocking the shop with lots of new, beautiful dog prints from the 1930s and earlier.
I still have a few of the lovely North American animal prints by Louis Aggasiz Fuertes.

I am finally in a position to announce that I will be opening my second Etsy shop this weekend.
The Tin Teddy graphics shop on Etsy has been doing well, I am quite proud. I have 98 packs of graphics available and have been getting regular sales. I will of course still be working hard on creating new graphics and related items for this shop.
The new shop will be for vintage items. This was something I have been planning for a long time, and am finally ready to go for it!
Tin Teddy Vintage will initially open with a range of a specific item – I will wait to tell you what that is (don’t ya love a mystery?)
The observant amongst you will no doubt spot a clue or two on this website before hand anyway.
Once the shop is up and running I will be adding a second type of item – and my new mannequin, Betty, will feature in this. She is technially only half a mannequin, she has no legs or arms. But she is pretty and we have finally stopped jumping out of our skins every time we come into the room and spot her Post on my Tin Teddy Facebook with what you think Betty will be used for – and if you are the first person to be correct, you can choose any 5 packs of Tin Teddy graphics as a prize.
