It's been a few days since my last post. I'll start with the November recap. After a pretty good October, I thought November was going to get very hectic, but instead it started off barely crawling. My 1st sale for the month was on 11/12. I can probably attribute the slow sales to concentrating on a late Oct show and multiple November shows. I wasn't listing a lot of new items on Etsy, so my shop became a bit stale.
Despite listing and promoting heavily near the end of the month, the shop didn't do much until a handful of orders at the end of the month. My shop lost it's momentum from October and was lost in a sea of new shops, so many new items and extremely heavy promoting on ETSY.
The momentum from the end of the month has carried over into early December and hopefully there's many more trips to the Post Office in the next couple of weeks.
Money Fairies- This was a little contest on Etsy, where a group of members decided to list and post their Money Fairy creations. I made both an ornament and a pendant/necklace and placed them on Etsy very early Sunday morning. By noon on Sunday they had both sold (to the same buyer) and I bought a little one for myself and if she makes to me in time, I'll bring her to my craft show with me this weekend.
P.S. -there wasn't a winner for this contest, but I guess anyone who sold their Money fairy and everyone who purchased one will be winners when she starts bringing the money to their shops!
The pictures of the Money Fairies I created are at the top of my blog.
Craft Show- I have what appears to be my final craft show of 2007 this weekend in Little Egg Harbor. The show is sponsored by the PTA and is a Santa's Secret Workshop. It will be held at the Intermediate School on Frog Pond Rd and has been heavily attended in past years. Many students come to the show (with their parents) to look for gifts for teachers & parents along with the public that also attend looking for gifts and decorative items. The show begins on Friday at 4:30pm - 8:30 pm and again Saturday morning from 10:00am - 2:00pm.
If you're in the area, stop in and look for my table. I'd love meeting Etsy members and anyone who follows my blog!
til next time...
