it was pure chance that i happened to come home from dinner with my wonderful cousins, Nathan and Nancy, and walk right into my studio to check my Etsy page. at that exact moment, one of my pieces was showcased on the front page of Etsy!
here is the screen shot. you can see my item there close to the bottom, the brooch i posted about on Monday!
i had spent about an hour at the Etsy forums, mainly in the Crafting and Business section, to do a bit of shameless self-promotion and see if i could get any help with my shoppe. it was the best hour i could have spent. i learned so much about the best ways to run an Etsy shoppe, advice from buyers and sellers alike, and just saw what other successful sellers are doing.
as a result of this, i was asked to participate in a craft fair in Park Slope in December! this will be my first craft fair, so i am extremely excited.
more goodies to come!
