♥ Valentine's Day Picks! ♥
So, you basically have 20 days to do your Valentine’s Day shopping. And so what if it’s a manufactured holiday? Chances are SOMEONE you know likes to receive a gift, no matter what the day! Boyfriend, girlfriend, BFF, Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, the mailman, your local friendly barista, whoever! People like to receive. It’s a fact. Gifts are fun. So, like I had been promising,...
I wonder— I don’t have an etsy shop or online store, so I haven’t made an ad to drive traffic to one of them. But, I wonder how Project Wonderful ads are working out for most sellers/bloggers/etc. I definitely have a loooot of bids on the adspace (it is free, of course). But in general, I wonder how effective it is; do people see sales from them?
Site Of the Day: Trend Hunter
So, I’m back in business. Clearly you know you’re running on empty when you have to take time off from your computer. I’m so in the wrong business! Retail management is not for me… I’ve worn myself down between all the long hours and the stress and the being sick and not giving myself enough time to get over it… and so on. SO not a big deal, but it’s high...
double - yoo - tee - eff
I was gonna do a feature yesterday but guess who got sick! Again! For what, the fourth time in 2 months? I am a walking germ magnet. Lame. I guess it won’t be an EVERY Wednesday thing, eh?
Do I ever leave the store? Seriously, I feel like I wake up and go to sleep in the furnishings department. One bonus is that inventory is over. We “hired” outside help… by “hired” I mean posted an ad on Craigslist and had a slew of college kids show up for a few hours of work at a measly hourly rate. But it got it done and I didn’t have to stay at the store...
Etsy Featured Shop - Makeshift Apparel
Every Wednesday I’m going to be featuring a different etsy shop. The first one up is DIY/screenprinting shop makeshiftapparel.etsy.com! I sent a few questions to Amanda, and she was nice enough to answer them. Behold! 1. Tell us about yourself— who’s the brains behind Makeshift Apparel? My name is Amanda Weselman, I’m 20 years old but I’ll be 21 on January 27th....
So I’ve been talking to the owner of a really great little etsy shop to be featured on the blog in the next few days…. I hope/plan to make this a weekly feature. A step or two further from just randomly finding something neato mosquito on etsy and posting it… which is cool too! But now I’mma be all talkin’ to the seller and finding out a bit more about them and the...
I guess I spoke too soon! Yeah, I’ve been so so sooo busy since my last post. I’ve barely cracked open my laptop much less logged into blogger. Blah. In other news, I’m going to definitely move ahead with my etsy seller feature on here… and I just got a Project Wonderful publisher account. That’s a pretty neat site, I’ve been reading about it here and there; it...
