Last week I had my first Etsy sale!
Thursday night a very sweet woman sent me a conversation, asking if I could get a certain hanky to her by this Thursday, October 17th. I did some quick checking on the USPS's website and found that a Priority Mail envelope would get it there in 2 days. I set up a custom listing to cover the extra shipping, quickly scanned my Pinterest boards for a cute packaging idea (packaging is super important in Etsy world, it seems, and I know I appreciate thoughtful packaging in orders I've placed) and got it all race ready. I used some butcher paper we had, sewed up a little "bag" and used some silvery baker's twine I had on hand. I do need some sort of card with my shop's name on it, though...maybe a Moo Card or sticker? What do you guys think?
Sold: My Jane Eyre hanky!
She was kind enough to message me letting me know it had come in this weekend, so she'll have it in time for the book-themed bridal shower she's throwing her friend!
With that sale, all future sales will run in the black; that first sale covers listing fees and supplies.
My phone made a "ca-ching" sound when the sale went through, haha, I LOVED IT!
Needless to say I'm over the moon. I have a fresh pile of hankies I need to get listed, woohoo!
