I did it!! I finished my 12 sweaters and hats. I was asked by Born Yesterday a baby boutique in Philadelphia to make them sweaters! Here the are! Whew!
So thrilled to be done and able to work on some fall inventory for my store.
I love when friendships spring from situations.
I started conversing with Angela through an Etsy Team, she was looking for help with her shop Inspired by Gianluca and not getting any response, so she got frustrated. I saw her comments and immediately took a look at her shop and gave her some feedback.
Like her I too have been trying to figure out my Etsy Shop, are my items good, should I make something else. So I just gave her some thoughts about her shop. Since Then We have become customers to each other and friends. We are helping market each other and help each other create a marketplace for our stores. Here is something I had Angela make for my Son’s room. She’s now posting it as a make to order for anyone’s baby’s room. I’m getting another made for my nephew.
Cute right? She’s got other great artwork in her store and she can make just about anything you want. That’s the great thing with Etsy. You can start a conversation with your customer and have things specifically crafted just for them, their baby or house. And that in turn helps shop owners to know what people are interested in, and what might sell better.
Here is what I made for Angela,
Now I have to admit when she asked me to make the hat, I was a bit terrified as I had never made anything like it, but I”m glad she pushed me a little out of my comfort zone and I got to make something new. And it gave me ideas for future items to sell. So thanks Angela for being Such an awesome customer and new friend!
So exciting, and thrilling and terrifying. Can I actually make two sweaters and two hats in 2-3 days. Well the answer is Yes I Can! I ran after my kids all day with needles and yarn in hand. It was crazy but I did it. So thrilling to ship it off Saturday Morning in a blizzard! But I love being my own boss!
