Sneaking Up On some Milestones....


So much to be thankful for this week!
I am steadily approaching my 500th sale on Etsy and I am excited!
When I made the move from Ebay to Etsy in February of this year, I set a goal to make 500 sales before the end of the year.

Now before you get too impressed , most of the items in my shop are small ticket and customers usually order more than one set of tags at a time.
So it was much easier for me to hit that objective than it would be for higher ticket sellers.

Even so, I am stoked to be so close to the objective.
Extremely thankful for my Etsy customers too, and I want to celebrate! What do you think?

Here's what I am tossing around:
* maybe free shipping (over a set $$ purchase) over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend?
*A special Giveaway for my very special 500th sale?

What would you like to see?

Hopefully there will be another milestone this week:
Lollishops is in Beta Testing this week, shooting for a soft opening on November 28th...
Sounds like another reason to celebrate! I think my first customer over there will definitely feel the SunshineandRavioli Love!

I'll decide exactly what I'll be doing to celebrate within the next few days. I promise you'll be the first to know...


Until then,
