My next shop – CrochetCabinetCrafts – is still young, and there are not many sales in it. Etsy is my hobby, not a way to make money. I earn my living from my other business – teaching foreign languages and translation. However, crocheting and embroidering is my way of having a stress-free life. Yesterday we talked about my bestsellers, today – my sales map. Most orders came from the USA, specifically from Colorado, New York, and Virginia. Slightly fewer sales we had from California, Georgia, Texas, Florida, and New Hampshire. Thanks a lot! Customers from other states are always welcome to our shop! As always, fewer sales are from Europe, except the UK – this is my regular customer, although, after Brexit and the changes in customs duty, the English buy a little less. Australia doesn’t buy from us that often, especially as there is no way to track orders from Poland to Australia, and that’s sad. However, some customers from Australia we had. No matter where you are from, we are always happy to welcome you to our shops!
I am so happy with this review on Pumpkin garland; it’s the first review on this item. Thank you, Virginia, for your lovely words and five stars 🙂 This bright orange and green bunting now decorates a house in Stockbridge, Georgia, USA.
I have so many orders, that’s why there is no way to create something new for the shop. Still, I am trying very hard and here is the result of my trials – I will be knitting a modern dahlia garland. Different variations in the shape of the petals are possible – some will be round, others slightly oblong; some will have the middle filled in, others will be empty. And, of course, the colours will be different, based on the threads I have available. It’s all thanks to Tatiana Litke, whose video tutorial I used to make my dahlias.
That is how I like to start my working day: get up, make a coffee, turn on the computer and see a new review of one of my favourite products – Sunflowers garland. A great mood all day long, guaranteed! Thank you, L.L. 🙂
I am trying to be as eco friendly as possible. Two of my garlands – sunflowers and poppies from CrochetCabinetcrafts – were dispatched today morning to The Netherlands. I hope the seller will be happy with them and can decorate her retro vans into Bohemian style as she wrote me. It’s time to start the summer holiday!
My new Pumpkin garland is growing up slowly. Firstly I was planning to make the bunting only from plane pumpkins, but it seems that something is missing here. So I added a simple crochet leaf but that wasn’t enough, so I made up a leaf with a tendril and now I am satisfied with it. It’s bright and funny and is the best creation for Thanksgiving Day home decoration.
It’s hard to describe the feeling of joy that comes over you when you receive a new review of your product. You are happy because someone loves what you have created and made with your hands. In this case, the feedback was accompanied by a text message stating that the garland is now decorating the entrance to your customer’s house. And you sit there all happy, looking at a map of the world and imagining this house in Smyrna, Georgia in America and the people who live in it and watch your work every day. And you are convinced once again that you are doing everything right! Lori, thank you for these kind words and Sunday magic mood!
I’ve devoted a lot of time to create this beautiful spring flower – the daffodil. It is going to be my new garland, not typical because without leaves, crochet only with flowers. I’ve crocheted only one flower as far and am going to create the new bunting this weekend because we have Monday free of work and celebrate Constitution Day. Unfortunately, the weather forecast says that there will be a cold and rainy weekend, so I plan to spend more time with my crocheting.
Today I decided to take stock of the sales in our CrochetCabinetCrafts shop on Etsy. It turns out that the most popular product is Daisies garland. It was sent to Basildon and London in the United Kingdom, Hedgesville, West Virginia and Enfield, New Hampshire in the USA. I always check the address where I send my products to avoid possible mistakes because customers are human too and can make mistakes. Also, I like to know where my product will decorate the house and where the people who liked my product so much that they decided to buy it live. I can also add that I enjoy reading about these cities, so working for Etsy you could say expands my horizons not only filling up my wallet 🙂 Thus, this is today’s hero:
