OBMS: Lately // Happy Friday

So if you are a friend on my regular Facebook page then you recently saw a rare update on the shop. I don't often share on my site or even here on my blog because I know you didn't start reading to only hear about the shop and have me shove it down your throat. But since this is my blog and I feel like talking about it, today I'm going to talk about it some.

Things with the shop have slowed down quite a bit since the first of the year. I still am getting a few sales a month, which I'm perfectly happy with at this point. If you weren't aware we have had a lot of things going on, i.e. I had knee surgery and have been working hard to recover (did you know that you basically have to be taught how to walk properly or sit in a chair or use those muscles that pretty much disappear after the surgery?!), so the fact that things have been a bit slower on the shop has actually been okay.

But that doesn't mean that I didn't hit a huge milestone for me - 100 sales! That was pretty exciting to me. Also pretty exciting to me is that more than just the Mountain Necklace has been selling since the new year. Without a doubt that was my biggest seller during the holiday season. Since it came into my shop in mid October I have sold 68 of these necklaces.


The rest of the orders have been a mix of other necklaces. Most recently I sent out a necklace which hadn't been sold before, which is always exciting to me. Even more exciting is the fact that this necklace is headed for the United Kingdom. Being able to ship all over the country is exciting but the fact that I do get to ship to other countries completely is even more exciting for me.


I work on the shop almost every day. Sundays I always take off. And sometimes I take other days off during the week just because it's a heavy mom day or I just don't feel like doing anything (the beauty of working for yourself....?), but mostly six days a week I spend some of naptime working on shop stuff. I do a mix of things. I work on pictures, I work on updating listing, always advertising (I don't spend too much on Etsy right now or anywhere else so social media is a big thing for me). Right now that's about all I'm doing but there is more plans I have in the future, including adding more necklaces and spending more time studying the Etsy Seller Handbook to help improve my shop moving forward.

So that's what's going on with the shop these days. Oh, I still have the coupon code 100SALES available for 20% off in celebration of you guessed it - 100 sales! So make sure to get your favorite necklace today!
