Help me, Obi-wan Kenobi...

...you're my only hope!

Ha! That's one of our favorite Star Wars quotes around here.  Anytime things don't go quite the way we want, someone's sure to say it. 

So what am I needing help with?  Why would I feel like quoting that today?  Well, my items just aren't selling.  I'm trying to figure out whether my Etsy store is just not getting enough exposure, or if my items aren't what folks are looking for.   Despite offering a sales coupon last week, I still have most of the same items left in my shop.  (Whereas I had really hoped to sell more.) 

Any thoughts, suggestions, ideas? Please let me know what you think! 
Anyways, now that my Thanksgiving Sale has ended, I'm trying to decide (besides wondering what I can do to make my Etsy experience better) whether I will leave my shop open for a while or if I need to take time off from checking Etsy daily and instead focus on making items for my shop.  I've read how it's important to list new items frequently--that alone will increase your shop's exposure.  But I just don't seem to have time to make new items to list all that often.  (Do I really knit that slowly?  I don't think so.  But I just don't have 8 or more hours a day to "work" like some Etsy shop owners.  In fact, I'm happy if I happen to have 1 hour of knitting time and that's definitely not every day!)

So, for now at least, my shop is open and I'll consider any good business advice that comes my way.


Thanksgiving SALE

Well, I don't have a ton of items in my shop, but I've decided to have a sale anyways.

My Dad was recently diagnosed with cancer and I may end up putting my shop on vacation mode for a while so I can help Mom and Dad out. But I'd like to sell as much of my ready-made items as I can first.  So if you make a purchase from my Etsy shop this week, be sure to use the coupon code THANKFUL15 to get 15% off!  Sale will go through Saturday the 26th!

Happy shopping!



Treasury Friday

Well, maybe that title doesn't roll off the tongue quite as nicely as Treasury Tuesday or even Treasury Thursday, but today I'm sharing my latest treasury collection with you.

A November collection.

It's cold here in Northern Minnesota. So I've found some items that would warm a person up...or at least give you a warm fuzzy feeling!
