Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure.

congrats on your first sale subdefective!  Smiley

Boy have I had a busy week. I'm shipping out 7 packages tomorrow!
I listed a few photos this evening, including a new 8X10 size (with 11X14 mat). I have 15 more 5X7s to list this week.

Thanks for the tip slb2724 .  Still trying to figure out etsy and craftster.

I'm so happy right now!  I just got back from a relatively small craft show, and I did better than I've ever done at a show!   Grin  I knew it was going to be a good night when my very first sale was one of the most expensive items I make.   Cheesy

AND when I went to delete the sold items from my etsy shop, I sold a wallet there too!

Now if only I could learn to predict what will be the big seller at shows, haha.  I busted my butt making a TON of small stocking-stuffer type items ($10 and under, etc) but almost everything I sold tonight was over $10.  So frustrating -- but I'm not complaining!    Grin

Hey guys! I am so excited, I was slacking on my etsy stuff for a long time and  I finally (with the pushing of a certain friend *cough*) put all new stuff up in my shop. Well one thing sold immediately but I'm a little worried about the other pendants in the shop, since I put them up without asking opinions of them first!

Theyre part of a Beautiful Women (nudes) Series. There are currently 3 up, more to come soon.

Any opinions?


Getting back into crafting! Follow along with me on my blog and see what I come up with! Smiley

LOL if you ever do figure it out, please let us know!

We had the same thing happen to us this year .... I got tons of orders for plates /platters (and not even the one's that I thought would go) but the little stuff didn't sell as well.

We are now throwing in a little item in with the more expensive items that are sold, as a thank you gift.

Yeah! We sold another platter on ETSY.

Hey all, I've been perusing this thread (and many of your shops!) for weeks now and adding lots of you to my favorites for some after holiday shopping. Weird I know, but all my holiday shopping is being done abroad this year since I am traveling.
I did want to ask a bit of advice from sellers about an issue I posted here
If you have the time, please read it and let me know if you'd be turned off by this customer feedback. I'd appreciate it!

Girl! Stop asking "What's for dinner?" IGOTCHU! Hit me up! ~

sarasvati and another nice etsyian both put my mushroom mascot in their treasuries--so thanks to them!!

Banga, it would not turn me off to YOU, but it has turned me off from the seller. (I had that shirt hearted, but after reading yours and other feedback, I'll do without!)

I have been doing fairly well this weekend!!! I actually sold quite a few things...enough that I actually have a balance in my paypal account! Woohoo!!! Of course, this just means that I will buy somethng to get rid of that balance, but hey...it's a neverending cycle!!!

I want your promo stickers...your fave local band, your etsy shop, your zine, a sticker you picked off a bar wall, or even bumper stickers! I'm covering a table & need stickers! PM me!


Free gift with every purchase!
