My first sale!
No matter what happens in my shop going forward, nothing can replace what I felt today when I received that notification on my smartphone that I received a new order.
Less than two months ago, I finally decided to bite the bullet and open an Etsy shop. Beginning inventory made, washed, and ready to ship. Items photographed, priced, listed…. lots of fun preparations. Since my items are mainly for cooler weather, I figured things would pick up in the Fall or before Christmas.
The notification of a sale today totally floored me, and I think everyone in the office heard my exclamation of surprise and happiness. Today will be forever in my memory as one of the most exciting, and scary, as my new adventure is finally beginning – for real!
