I recently listed on etsy a couple of new pieces that I have made. In the middle of listing, I thought I would re-list some of the pieces that I haven’t managed to sell (which is, everything…). A couple of weeks later, an unexpected passing of a loved one brought me back home to Jakarta. While I was mindlessly checking my emails during downtimes, I noticed an email from etsy informing me that I have just made my first sale!
Excitement was soon followed by a panic feeling as I forgot to put my shop on vacation mode. I thought that I was going to lose a sale as I was away and wouldn’t be able to post the order within the promised 48 hours.
I spoke to the boy about my first sale, and asked him to help me and post the order. He was such a trooper, rummaging through my box of supplies to find everything I needed to post, and going the extra mile in making a card as requested by the buyer. So here I am, thinking that I want to share this with you, as I feel that I have finally managed to make the first step and cross a big hurdle in selling my jewellery in Australia. I would always remember this unique first etsy sale experience, and I wouldn’t have been able to do so without the boy’s help 😊
