Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade, vintage, and craft items and supplies. On 29 August 2015, Chris created an account to sell his wares, ending a long and turbulent tenure as an eBay seller. Chris spent about one year selling his arts and crafts on eBay, but was never satisfied with the arrangement. eBay frequently took items down, sometimes due to trolls, but more often due to Chris violating the site policy (over and over, in the same way every time). Time will tell if this exact same thing will occur on Etsy (it will).

On 8 June 2016, Chris's Etsy seller account was closed.

Announcement

He's probably passing these out at Impulse too.

On 2 September 2015, Chris announced that he was winding down his business on eBay and relocating to Etsy:

I am Moving Shop to etsy.com; it is Definitely an Improvement from eBay. So, come on down and request a Medallion, a Commission, a Photo, or simply Donate towards Book #11 and Beyond!

Listings for Sonichu and Rosechu, and CWC, Amiibo Figures are Coming Soon.

Have a Great Day!

He added:

 
 
It is definitely Easier and Better than eBay.
 

 

The following day he made a Facebook note announcing the switch, and a week later he revealed a flyer for the shop. True and Honest Fans have since found the flyer taped to a bathroom wall in Charlottesville, and had it mailed to a business in Richmond.[1]

Chris's Etsy shop, which opened for business on 2 September, was named "Cwcville Shopping," subheaded "Cwcville Shopping Center." The tagline was, "Christine Weston Chandler's Shop for Items and Creations Straight from the Creator of Sonichu, Rosechu, and the City of Cwcville, Va."

Items

By the time Chris left eBay, he was being allowed to sell only one item at a time per his two accounts, due to him constantly breaking site rules. Etsy provided a fresh start, and allowed him to sell as much as he wanted. The medallions, autographed photos, and commissions appeared immediately, and the Sonichu Amiibo soon followed. For some reason he chose not to offer any more original drawings for sale, probably because commission work was more reliable. The product descriptions were largely copied from those on eBay, including instructions regarding "bidding," even though Etsy is a strictly a buy-it-now market. He got the sample photos for his commissions straight from this very wiki.

Autographed paperback copies of Sonichu 0 through 4 were also for sale, made by Lulu. Sonichu 1 became available only after the most recent revisions introducing Ren Skysoar were made, suggesting that someone persuaded him he'd need to make less use of Sega's copyrighted characters.

Eager fans quickly shelled out money for all these items.

Item Details

As a devoted fan to the Sonichu and Rosechu Comic Book Series, I am certain you do want to see More Pages since I ended up with Creator's Block and forced into Hiatus in 2011. Well, I, Christian, now Christine, Weston Chandler, am getting back into the drawing, writing and coloring recently, and working on a schedule that works around my projects as well. And then, I have my own typical stresses in Life and all.

And if you don't feel like buying a medallion, commission, or figure from me, I offer you a chance to donate towards my own peace of mind to further and better draw and create. $10 for One Full Written, Drawn and Colored Page in my current Book, makes a great difference and everyone wins.

And for each person who donates through here, I will draw and send a single Character Drawing as a sign of gratitude. Requests for drawing content are welcomed, but if no request is made, I shall draw a fresh drawing of Sonichu. **Limit One Drawing Per Person, Per Day.

Thank You for your help.

Not long after listing this, something rather unprecedented happened. A YouTube reviewer named DStecks gave Chris $1,000 towards the continued production of Sonichu.

Subsequently, Chris edited the price to "$10.00+" and the description to include more options:

All completed Past and NEW Pages will be uploaded and Publicly viewable on my Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/CwcvilleGuardian, in their respective photo albums. After getting enough funds, I will look further into Paper Self-Publishing and Printing of the books, and shortly after sell them on my shop here.

And for each person who donates through here, I will draw and send a single Character Drawing as a sign of gratitude. Requests for drawing content are welcomed, but if no request is made, I shall draw a fresh drawing of Sonichu. **Limit One Drawing Per Person, Per Day.

And, in the back of the book, I'll put your name there in a dedicated page. You reserve the right to request your name not be listed and remain anonymous.

EVERYONE who Donates gets a Character Drawing and a name in the book's back, each and respectively. But you get more if you Donate More. **ALL Character Drawings will be shipped within two days of Donation.

At the $50.00 Level, you'll get your choice of either a Sonichu Medallion (Or other optional variant or Custom; see Medallion Listing) Or an Autographed Photo of me. Allow up to two weeks for medallion creation.

$100.00 gets you your choice of one of the Sonichu or Rosechu Amiibo Figures, or one of the CWC Amiibo Figures (see their individual listings). Allow up to four weeks for Figure parts being acquired and assembly/creation.

$500.00 gets you a Sonichu Medallion (Or other optional variant or Custom; see Medallion Listing), one Sonichu or Rosechu Amiibo Figure of your choice, AND the three piece set of CWC Amiibo Figures (Pre-2011 Christian Weston Chandler, Chris Chan Sonichu, and Post-2011 Christine Weston Chandler). Allow a Month for Figure parts being acquired and assembly/creation, and you may request an Autographed Photo as well. Depending on the timing of Donation and Page Creation, your name may end up being written into the back(s) of the current book, as well as the following book.

$1,000 gets you the Complete Main Sonichu and Rosechu Amiibo Figure Wave 1 Set (Sonichu, Rosechu, Blake, Wild, Bubbles, Angelica, Punchy and Magi-Chan), the three-piece CWC Amiibo Figure Set (Pre-2011 Christian Weston Chandler, Chris Chan Sonichu, and Post-2011 Christine Weston Chandler), a Sonichu Medallion (Or other optional variant or Custom; see Medallion Listing), and you may request an Autographed Photo as well. Depending on the timing of Donation and Page Creation, your name may end up being written into the back(s) of the current book, as well as the following book, and maybe the one book after that. So, up to three books.

Thank You soo much for your help. Even the little donations help and go a very long way.

**Coupon Codes should NOT be applied to Donations.

However, the donation eventually ended up for naught, as Chris soon abandoned Sonichu 11 late next month, making only 16 out of the promised 100 pages.

Christian Weston Chandler... Yep, I'm on T.V. Two DVD Set

Main article: Christian Weston Chandler...Yep, I'm on TV :)

1 February 2016

Price: $30

This is the DVD I've personally compiled before and completed on February 24, 2007; my 25th Birthday. On Disc One, see just about everything in my life up to my 25th Birthday, including the inspirational message I recorded on the exact day for future generations as well. See past recorded videos, unedited, as well as slideshows of over a thousand photographs of me, my family and (past) friends, with audio featuring myself playing a radio show host with selections of good songs from my music collection.

On Disc Two, there are a few videos recorded After 2/24/2007, including the animations and level videos I have personally created on Sony PlayStation 3's LittleBiGPlanet and LittleBiGPlanet 2, of which are still uploaded and playable from LBP 1, 2 and 3 respectively (I have not uploaded anything from LBP 3, Karting, PSP, or Vita yet). Although, I have uploaded Race Tracks AND Characters on PlayStation 3's ModNation Racers (which are also downloadable and playable on ModNation Racers Road Trip on Vita).

Enjoy an extensive trip through time with all these numerous content pieces from Christine (Christian) Weston Chandler, myself. Total Content Running Time: More than Six Hours. (Get your Binge Watching/Listening On)

    • DISCRETION: In the Future Message, since that date, my views on homosexual people was misguided; I have changed my feelings and emotions on the topic, as I, myself, am a Lesbian Transwoman. Everyone, just be yourselves, as you are, and be as happy as possible about yourself.

Updates

On 19 October, Chris began to make updates to his shop, consisting of captioned photos tagged to particular items.

Decline

In March 2016, Chris bought a PS4. The new life upgrade proved too distracting, as he ignored Etsy orders, often for months.

People who paid him $50 for a video greeting would be told by Chris mid-video that he hoped the video wouldn't be late.[2][3]

Despite that, many people were willing to give Chris slack, and often waited months for him to deliver, before giving up and seeking refunds through Paypal.[4][5][6]

Shop Closure

On 8 June 2016, a Kiwi Farms user noticed that Chris's Etsy shop had been replaced with an error message[7]. Days later, on 11 June 2016, Chris announced in a video that the shop was "on vacation."

Chris claimed that he needed to catch up on orders. Given Chris's track record with personal responsibility, it's also likely that Etsy shut down the shop after numerous failures by Chris to deliver orders due to his stressful lifestyle.

Chris's Purchases

From 22 September 2015 through 1 December, Chris bought at least 51 Amiibricks from seller WeekNightStudios, spending $209. Chris left several reviews.

22 September

The AmiiBrick is good; it functions as stated; my Amiibo figures fit snugly into the bricks, and the bricks attach well onto my Lego plate and bricks. All in all, for a good method of storing/displaying your original and/custom Amiibo figure(s), I would personally recommend one or more AmiiBricks, so they would be less likely to fall off or out upon impact. There is room for slight improvement to make them more flat on the sides. And the top portion can be better flattened and the pegs aligned to better make that sandwich between a 2X2 or a 2X4 on top, the brick(s) or plate on the bottom, and any bricks around the putter sides of the AmiiBrick.
