RECORD BREAKING SNEAK ATTACK SALES!

Cyber Monday, November 26th Brought Record Smashing Sales for Sneak Attack Shops!

What a day we had! Virginia of MadeByHand chose 5 shops for us to "Attack".  Although it wasn't a contest to see if we could break any records, we soon saw that the sales were going through the roof as we reached 50 sales! So old stats were looked at to see if that many sales had ever been made before in one Sneak Attack and it was discovered that on 5/4/09, 69 sales were made and on 5/6/09, 72 sales were made. All of a sudden everyone wanted to beat those numbers and we did with 84 sales! This Team is fantastic! Everyone pulled together and showed these new shops a lot of love with hearts and promoting as well as the wonderful amount of sales.

Here are some comments from some of our "victims"

I'd just like to say thank you all so very much. This is such an awesome surprise. My kids (okay and my husband and I lol) were all jumping up and down when we saw the orders come in. Plus the crazy amount of favorites has been awesome. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. I can't wait to join in the fun on the next sneak attack because the happiness you bring to new sellers is more then I can even explain.

Meet Susanne

Susanne, from SussesSpindehjrne is sponsoring our sneak attack today at 4pm. A frequent sponsor, Susanne loves to introduce new Etsy shops to our team as well as the Etsy community.

I convinced Susanne (who is camera shy) to provide us with another picture of her as she works on the spinning wheel. Susanne is holding braided roving - that is the way roving often comes when we purchase it! Makes it easy to pull off a part and start spinning (hehe I'm still learning).


Susanne has many different types of roving as well as hand-spun yarn that she sells in her shop. If you are like us, and very addicted to fiber -  you will love her shop! And this yarn, is the result of her spinning in the above photograph.



After you are finished oohing and ahhing at all the goodies in Susanne's shop, please come join us as we have fun in our sneak attack thread, waiting for the new Etsy shops to be revealed!
