I also had some drama with new staging props, since the Etsy front page tends to favor a white background, and I'm a contrarian and prefer a rich, dark, textured background. Well, they can take my dark background (at least for non-gothic pieces), but I'll be damned if they take my texture, too.
I went shopping last week, looking for certain things that I can use, and wouldn't you know it, after 2-3 hours, I found nothing. So I came back home, sulked and regrouped, and then started looking around the house for new things to work with. I found a large off-white pillow sheet, a mirror, a white feathered hat, and a pewter plate. I'll still use my black velvet for the gothic pieces, but we'll see how this new staging translates in my store. I actually find it harder to manage light in the lighter background, so I'll have to play with it a bit.
Some of them are already up in my Etsy shop, and some are yet to come over the next week. Most of the ones below are the more ornate ones, but I've also got some simpler ones in the mix.
