This week I got the pleasure of visiting the shop Fritos314, a lovely little shop that sells slumped bottles, stained glass, and mosaics. The Sneak Attack occurred on 04/10/09 and received 3 sales.
I was very excited to be sneak attacked! I didn't even know that was something that was done on Etsy.
It gave me some extra exposure, which I really appreciate!
I currently just sell on Etsy, and to my co-workers. They haven't figured out yet to run when they see me coming into work with something new I've made! I have them under my spell! Ha!
Wish I had more time to create for my shop on Etsy. Unfortunately, like a lot of other people, I have to work full time, just 'cause for some silly reason I think I need to eat and have a roof over my head!
The pieces I make are one of a kind, and like my idol, artist Laurel Skye says, you need to "procrastinate and percolate a project." And boy, do I do that! I try to put my heart and a piece of myself into anything I make, or I can't be happy with it. I feel like if Linda ain’t happy, ain’t no one going to buy it and be happy!
I think Etsy is one of the best things ever! I wish I had discovered it sooner!
You can sneak attack me anytime!!
I was up real late at night trying to fix my images, make it look better, and trying to think of ways to increase my sales. Honestly I was ready to give up that night with etsy. All of a sudden a bunch of sales started pouring in from no where. My eyes got way big, I started thinking something was wrong with my shop. Once I realized what happened i was so so happy. Then I started thinking OMG I have to fulfill all these orders! LOL! Anywho, I DECIDED NOT TO QUIT ON ETSY THAT NIGHT:-)
Are you selling on other venues?
I take orders from my main website as well, PinkCupcakesANDPaper.com
Comments you would like us to pass on to the team?
You guys are awesome! You motivated me to continue with my business and you've helped make it what it is today! I will be forever grateful for you!
Even though I wasn't apart of the team when Tamika's shop was Sneak Attacked, this makes me feel great! Her shop received 9 sales from the attack and today she has over 100 sales. Stop by and pick a few favorites!
See you next week,
