So my darling cow creamers that I’d hoped would sell on Etsy haven’t, and though a few people have favorited them, there’s clearly not been much interest. I’ve dropped the price several times, but still no luck selling them. So, I put them up in the “Sweat Shop Swap” on Craftster, which means that up to 5 of them will be leaving my house this month, to go live in homes where they will be loved and used (instead of living in shoe boxes in the top of my closet). A few people in the swap commented that they liked them, so I was encouraged by that.
But then, just fifteen minutes ago, someone actually bought one on Etsy! Imagine that! It’s a gift, so that’s pretty cool too. The Spanish one, Dulcinea (with “leche” on the side) is going to go live somewhere else.
Which also, coincidentally, means there’s money in my Paypal account, but we’ll just let that sit there for a while.
It also means that I now officially have a sold item in my store, which hopefully looks better to potential buyers than none. Hopefully I’ll get a good rating, as well, thus further boosting my selling potential. I don’t really know how it all works, beyond the option of buying featured spots, which I’m unwilling to do at this point.
So, I guess I’ll be taking a break from reading this weekend (lots and lots of reading for class) to go to the Post Office. Yay!
