I recently asked Summer to tell us about her first sale and how it made her feel.
My first sales were on July 19, 2010 when I was sneak attacked. I was shocked. My Mom and Step-Dad were visiting for my birthday (July 20) and she had been asking me how the online selling was going. I had told her I was about done because I had been at it for over 3 months with barely any views. I had tried running some of the page ads, but I wasn't having much luck. I was just going to let my listings expire and close the shop. An hour or so later, my husband asked in a panic if I had given our paypal information out because we had been hacked. I looked at the emails and then logged in to etsy to find I was not being hacked, but attacked! I was thrilled. Absolutely thrilled! I had 10 sales that day. It took me a few more months of lurking in the threads before I became an active member.
Here is Summer's first sale.
