Slow times... but 50 sales

I have been doing really well on Etsy and it's been great, but sadly no sales the past few days. I am very grateful for the amount of sales I have been having so when you get to a period of a few days with no sales.. its kind of awful. The good news is that I have officially hit 50 sales!!! That is a huge feat for me and makes me very positive about making my goal of 75 sales by my first anniversary, which is in October.

The bobby pins I make really did it for me, they were the thing that sent the sales fairy my way. So thank you everyone for support and sales and make sure you check my shop often since I add new items almost every day.

Here are 10 things that helped me reach my goal:

1. The forums

2. Chat

3. Family support

4. Facebook


6. My blog!!

7. God for making me creative. I would be l.o.s.t. without my creativity.

With Etsy,as we all know, its about promoting and relisting. Those are the key factors in having a successful business on Etsy. I know I'm not a pro but those 2 things were a HUGE help.


  1. Congratulations on 50 sales! Those bobby pins are adorable!

  2. Congrats on your sales...and congrats that you realize your creativity is from God! I could do nothing without Him!

  3. Those bobby pins are awesome and wonderful blog

  4. I love those bobby pins. And yes, our creativity comes from God above. I always keep that in the forefront of my mind, and give Him His proper glory. I like to make ACEOs to praise Him. We can praise Him with what we make, too!!! :) Keep it up. Congrats on the sales!

  5. thank you! thank you! I really appreciate your advice...I need it!

    Congrats on your big 50! hoorah!

    I am so going to follow you!

  6. Hey Can you tell me about relisting? It is as simple as it sounds? Would that work with my dresses also. Thanks, Sarah
