Etsy Milestone + Giveaway!!


Well friends, today is a very big day for me! Back in 2007 I began listing my little sewing creations online at our favorite handmade market place, Etsy..... today I officially passed the 1000 sales mark in my LouLouBell shop! Yippee! I won't lie, I'm feeling pretty happy. I absolutely LOVE what I do, sewing and creating - and to have other people enjoy my work too means a great deal to me. Etsy has been such a great venue for me, an awesome community. I love that I can share my work with people all over the world, and my little bags have travelled to places I didn't even know existed! And I love that I in turn can support other artists and mompreneurs! Thanks Etsy! I want to thank all of my customers over the years for your support and business. 

In celebration, I want to offer a giveaway of any of the hairpin sets listed in my shop! I want to hear from you - all you have to do is drop me a line, say hello, tell me why you love Etsy, tweet me, follow my blog - you know the drill - the more you do, the more entries you get! 

I'll choose a random winner in a week's time! Thanks again to my lovely customers and Etsians for all your support!

  4. Hi Hat Junkie, I checked on your shop, it's awesome, I love your work! If I had to pick one thing that I think helped my success on Etsy is probably listing frequently. Frequent listings drive traffic, and I always saw more sales when I was listing new things in the shop. It can be challenging to keep your stock up, especially between selling online, with shops and boutiques, and if you sell direct at markets. But even if you can't get something new listed, even a 'relist' of an item will put you back at the top of the listings...

    Thanks for your note and kind words : )

    Do you ever do your cute hair pins on the mini bobby pins? I have really thin short hair and the big ones are usually too long!
