Goose Creek Goods Open Its Tiny Digital Doors

This will be old-business for the 104 kind folks who LIKED the Goose Creek Goods page on Facebook since Saturday.

But since there is not anything like a complete overlap between Fragments readers and Facebook friends, I’ll run the risk of boring some and informing others.

I am happy to report that since last Thursday, the Etsy storefront I am calling [su_highlight background=”#f0c647″]Goose Creek Goods[/su_highlight] has been successfully established and the first orders will ship today!

If you stop by the FB page, do browse around (not much there yet of course) and add your LIKE to stay informed as things are added to the site.

And in case you haven’t a clue what I am offering as first products in the digital storefront, I’ve also set up a page (TAB up top) called [su_highlight background=”#f0c647″]FredsNoteCards[/su_highlight].

Each of the five Blue Ridge Photo Note Card sets contains five edge-to-edge photo cards of local landscapes or features. Envelopes of course included.

FredsNoteCards here at Fragments from Floyd shows you a slider of each set (Country Roads, Autumn, Floyd, Blue Ridge Parkway and Goose Creek). Also after each set is a button to click to take you directly to the Etsy page where you can make a purchase.

I look forward, now that the storefront details have been hammered out, to making my books and some new digital products and probably some color enlargements available there too.

Frankly, it’s been somewhat of a bumpy road and Ann would say GRUMPY-bumpy. Delays. Misdirections. Tail-of-the-elephant befuddlement. Sheer dumb ignorance. At times I’ve been less than content with where things were. I don’t hide that very well. I’m better now. Watch Fred smile.

So please, if you have not already, either go to or bookmark Goose Creek Goods. You need these cards and you need them now! For…
