Blast from the Sneak Attack Past July 16, 2014

Hi there, now it´s time again to visit a victim from the past. This time I was visiting HadynsHair and was totally blown away, when I saw all her cute hair accessories. A dream to all girls, small as big with an inner princess. I asked Jillian how the sneak attack the 9/29/2011 affected her shop.

I was very active for the year after your sneak attack... selling the perfect amount of items.... people were great to work with and I really enjoyed it. I then had to put my shop on the back burner because I started teaching and couldn't do a GREAT job with my classroom as well as my shop... So my shop sat for about a year. I recently started my shop up again and am feeling like I was when I FIRST started up my shop. (5-6 views a day :( ) So many things have changed.... I spent hours tagging and researching before and I am doing the same thing again....kind of a bummer... BUT I am driven and WILL be selling like I was before I had to close shop :-)

How did the sneak attack affect your shop?
It was really what got the ball rolling. I was very excited to get a couple of sales and more views....

What was your reaction to the sneak attack?
I was very surprised. This Etsy community is very helpful and I appreciate all of you.

Are you selling on other venues?
Just Etsy!

Comments you would like us to pass on to the team?
I appreciate all of your hard work! Thank you, thank you !



We wish HadynsHair so much luck with the reopening, and if you love hair stuff you should take your time and visit Jillian´s shop.

Thank you for reading and wish you a good day.


This month I had the pleasure of chatting with Nancy from SparkleyExpressions, her shop was Sneak Attacked on October 24, 2011. Nancy creates gorgeous crochet items, everything you can think of; from hats, photo props, booties, to headbands. Her shop is lovely!

These fox hats are my favorites! I asked Nancy how her shop is doing now and what she thought of the Sneak Attack, here's what she shared;

My shop had not done much until the sneak attack an after that it did start increasing.
I was pleasantly surprised and excited to see the interest in my shop.
I am only selling on Etsy. I do have a facebook page an have sold in boutiques and craft shows.
I think the Handmade Movement Team is a great thing for new shops to help them get noticed, however I wasn't good at remembering to get on an help others, so unfortunately I was dropped from the team.
Thank you for all you do!!

I'm happy to hear that! Today SparkleyExpressions has over 300 sales, way to go Nancy. Good Luck with your shop. Love this idea for newborn pictures, what an adorable little turtle. 

Stop by SparkleyExpressions to pick a few favorites of your own.

Until next time,
