Catch-up

I haven't posted in the last couple of days, but it hasn't been because I've been lounging around. Yesterday on ETSY, my shop had 2 items listed in the treasuries. The items didn't sell, but the treasuries did give my items and the shop some exposure. So much exposure that I made my 1st sale on ETSY late last night!!! I didn't even realize until I had packed away my supplies and took a last look at the ETSY and noticed I was one item short in my shop. I spent a few minutes looking to see if I'd inactivated an item accidently, but everything was there... except for my newest entry to the store. It was gone, already bought and paid for!! So very cool!!
Today I received a treasury on ETSY and I'm featuring new sellers with zero sales, it's been a lot of work and my honey has been helping with the computer stuff (under my direction, of course) Quite a few sellers are getting some free exposure for their items and who knows, one day they may include me in their treasury.
The one thing I'm learning quickly, when you're new and don't have the "next hot item" you need to promote, promote and promote some more. And try to build up your inventory for future shows and the ETSY shop.

Til tomorrow or the next day if tomorrow's a beach day...

morrgan, thanks sooo much. It was a great feeling and a big rush. Unfortunately, the rush came around 1:00 am and I had to be up around 6:00...lol
I'll take a rush like that everyday of the week ; ).

precious quilts- TY and thanks for the kind words. The treasury was fun and hopefully some of the sellers caught the eye of some potential customers.

Have a great day!
