For the first time since I began selling my work online, I have created a "best seller." Mind you, this is all relative, but ANY TIME that I have sold more than one or two of something, I've been amazed. And I do have a few other "greatest hits," but my new "Made With Silk" series is sort of catching on! The "Pastel Rainbow," in particular, has sold several copies, including (a first for me) five copies since Friday. Amazing. The other designs in this series are moving, too, but there must be something about this version that folks are responding to especially well.
Not to over-think this (but I have been over-thinking this ;p) it must be some unusual (for me) combination of the price point, the weather, and maybe the promise of Spring...which was sort of the inspiration for this version of the piece. And maybe some (personal) economies are turning around a little bit. And I say that because again, since I opened my shop on Etsy in late November, 2008, I sort of came to expect a bump in sales for holidays....but this weekend was a first for me that was nice and busy, and um, it doesn't seem to be "holiday shopping" that I'm the beneficiary of right now.
OK, well, now I've got some more crocheting to do here!! Have a great day!
P.S. I'm asleep at the wheel here and forgot to mention that over at the "I Heart Handmade" show, there's a new giveaway of your choice of one of my "Pearls and Silk" pieces! Granted, you need to work a bit to get your entries in (you can enter 3 times!) but IF you win....you get to choose a piece...and it might even be the one at the top of this blog post (if I don't sell out, LOL!)
So don't wait...pop over there now and enter to win!
Oh, and one more thing-one of my crochet pieces just got included in a post on this beautiful new (to me) blog! bluebirdluxe is the name, and you just have to check it out!!
