Some of my Etsy teammates and I have shop specials going on every Saturday night. The Specials start at 5:00 p.m. Eastern, and it’s a race against the clock to see who is the first to post their special or sale for the evening. We’re like a bunch of little kids waiting for someone to call out “Ready, Set, GO!!!”. Everyone has their posting ready to cut and paste, and if you can get on the first or second page you have done well. After everyone has their special posted, some folks like to create Treasuries of the beautiful, unique goods being offered. And this team has it all, vintage, handcrafted goods, crafting supplies.
For anyone who is not familiar with Etsy, it is an online venue for artists, craftspeople, and vintage sellers. I am not an artist myself, but I can appreciate the work that goes into anything made by hand. Creating a new design, testing it, making alterations, putting on the finishing touches, and sending out into the world.
This is something I like even though winter is almost over!
