I was very happy with my old business name, Jabon Soaps, for quite awhile now. It seemed to fit well for me. I had looked across the internet prior to choosing that name to see if it was being used by anyone else and had not found anything in the search engine. So, I felt secure with the name.I looked again the other day and lo and behold, there were SEVERAL people who where using that, or a similar name...so similar that it was hard to differentiate. It also appeared that these had picked this name prior to me.
As a result, I have decided to change my name so that my products are not confused with with someone else's.The new name I've chosen is one that I have already been using regularly on myspace, on Ruebee and on my blogspot. People already know me by this name and I originally used it as sort of a nickname....Soapy Blessings. My shop site will now be known as Soapy Blessings by Trish, which is already the case on my blog site anyway.
The shop on etsy is still the same, just the name is different.Since the original name I picked on etsy was "jabon", I think it will still come up as "jabon" on the forums and convos. I don't think that can be changed. That's OK. "Jabon" means "soap" in Spanish and still applies anyway.So, come visit my same shop but with a different name.By the way, I am having a sale through March 2nd, so even better!!!
