my shop at etsy has been active since january 6, 2007... hard to believe! what's amazing is what a little community it is. while that's great for the seller (it's like a really fun quilting bee where you can make funky things and nobody will bash you) I wonder sometimes if it's not really confusing for a shopper who is just stopping by to look or because they know the owner of the shop or was given a business card, etc. the site does seem to have it's own language sometimes:
- "convo" is the conversation button you click to send a message to a seller
- "pif" is a pay-it-forward where you list something for nearly free in hopes someone else will list something as well and keep the chain going
- "destash" is when you've listed some of your supplies overstock for sale to clear it out
... you get the idea. well, in that same vein, a new phrase/concept has been coined: the yart sale. this is an etsy-wide kick-off of summer and father's day sale, spanning from june 11th to the 20th. my shop has been in a bit of a doldrum due to the lack of time i've had to devote to it recently (pregnant... new job... moving...) so i thought this would be a fun way to welcome in the summer!
all of my "yart sale" items are freshly updated in their own little section... i hope you'll check it out when you get the chance! you'll see some newer items and some old favorites... help make room for all the new lovelies to debut!happy shopping!
