I finally had a sale through my Etsy Shop last week. In fact I had two! I know this doesn't make it an extremely successful business, but it sure makes me feel better about how its going. The funny this is that I haven't sold any of the hats that I have listed, both orders were custom orders.
The first order I got was from a lady looking for a Halloween custom for her baby girl. Her two older boys are going to be Mario and Luigi, so she thought a Toad hat would be a good match. She had me add a detachable flower and the cords to make it a little more girly.
The second order wasn't really an Etsy order. I mention on Facebook that somebody ordered a hat from me and one of my facebook friends sent me a message noticing that my Etsy photo shows baby booties, and she asked if I sold them and she ended up buying 5 pairs.
Here's a little close up. They button on the side.
I'm hoping now that the weather is getting cooler my shop might start doing better. I mostly have hats listed and they are more of a seasonal thing. Anyway, I'm happy I finally sold something after a month!
