I continue to be excited whenever someone purchases one of my woven scarves, cowls or shawls. I don’t sell anything I don’t love myself and often it is hard to part with things. However, I know that if I want to keep weaving I need to sell things so that there is at least an equilibrium with respect to wool in and out of the house. Several independent makers describe doing a little dance when an item is purchased and I am no different. It is such a wonderful feeling when someone loves a piece as much as I have loved creating it. So, today I celebrate my 300th Etsy sale which feels like something to cheer about in a little way. I have recently also started selling on Folksy which is a U.K. based Etsy equivalent so it will be interesting to see how that goes.
My 300th Etsy sale – a gorgeous merino, cashmere and alpaca shawl.
