creating something with your own hands is really special and for people to want to buy it is even more exciting. today i experienced my first sale (apart from a few sales on my etsy to close friends and family) and it is all thanks to Linda from lilly cottage. Linda is one of those creative types that makes you feel so very special and has been particularly kind to me and my family. so i thank her from the bottom of my heart for commissioning 10 little brooches.
to make life easier and to ease the suspense Linda bought them off me at $5 each which meant that today i made $50! my first big sale! it might not seem big to you but it is to me :) she will now have them for sale in her shop with an added commission but i don't have the pressure of wondering whether they will sell. i hope they do so that i can make some more!
i feel like framing my first sale docket (couldn't frame the $50 i need it for petrol) it will certainly be finding a spot on my inspiration wall!
i also made my own little business card which i just expected Linda to put in the bag after a sale, but noooo her creative mind had the brilliant idea to pin them onto the card!! they look so sweet scattered throughout her shop. i didn't have my camera out there but she will no doubt be posting about it.
here is what the cards look like, i made both pale blue and pale pink/red cards. i am really happy with how they turned out and they cost me nothing but the price of a piece of card!
thanks for your interest and support i will keep you updated with any of the sales!
