Notice anything different about my shop right now?
It's that little number under shop info... which rolled from 1999 to 2,000 Sales this weekend!!!!
I don't know if I ever thought I'd make it to 2,000... I remember being at 300 sales and looking at the shops that had 2,000 and just thinking- wow, those are the Big Dogs. Well, honestly, I still feel like a teacup poodle, but hey- it's a big deal to me!
We had to go out to eat to celebrate. I snap some photos of my outfit while Sugatroll is on the phone:
thanks to my friend Winter for the polka dotted blouse!
I ordered my very favorite breakfast- blueberry crepes from Apple Alley. They are so light and fluffy. I broke my no-egg diet (I'm mildly allergic) to have these. (And you know what? I felt totally fine after eating them. Magic!)
It arrives and it's On:
I took the day to reorganize my shipping area and storage spaces for the shop... it felt like the right thing to do. I read my old sticky notes from when I still worked a day job, where I had written the Positives of working for myself. I was surprised that "go to the bathroom when I want to" was on there... but, that's right, how could I forget? My job was a receptionist, so I was always afraid, mid-pee, that the phone was going to ring at the front desk!
I came up with some goals for the next 1,000 sales.... basically, to keep on trucking with everything I am already doing right, to try a few new things to increase traffic to my shop and return business, and especially to try to learn more about who my customers are and what they need in their wardrobes. That is the weirdest thing about working online- in many cases, you don't know who the people are who buy from you. All you know is their names and their addresses! (Any marketing professionals out there who want to tell me an easy way to figure this out?)
Thanks so much to everyone who has supported my shop in its growth and evolution- I couldn't do it without you!
nom nom, all gone!
