A Century of Sales...Sale of the Century

Hi folks, thanks for tuning in.
This week I am celebrating my 100th sale in my Etsy shop. Pretty incredible, really.
Probably the most memorable of these sales would be

* The hang-glider skirt, (right) which a lovely friend bought a long time ago when my shop first opened

* My first custom order of a rainbow twirly dress - the customer loved my pink one so much she bought it and ordered a matching rainbow one too

* Matching sunfrocks for two year old twins (squee!) Here's one of them

* The day a customer in Sweden bought three sunfrocks in one day, sized one, two and three. I can just imagine those three little girls skipping through the Swedish country side in their little dresses!

I have really enjoyed running my Etsy shop in my spare time. I have learned that it is like a newly lit fire, the more you tend it and feed it, the more it grows and prospers. Little and often is the key.

To celebrate and to say thank you to my customers, I am running a special sale in my shop for a short while only. The coupon code for a 20% off discount is "CELEBRATION"

With the holidays coming up I hope to hit the sewing room and build up my stock levels, so check back in a week or so to see what is new. I have a growing pile of vintage sheets which await their reconstruction. Bring on the holidays!


  1. The little girl's sun dresses are precious! Congrats on your 100th sale :)

  2. Congratulations on your 100th sale! I recently met that too as it was a goal of mine! I so agree that the more you tend your Etsy shop and feed it the more it grows!
    Keep sewing and stocking up...I am doing that too in anticipation of the holidays (not sewing...just stocking up!!!)

  3. LOVE that hang glider skirt. That is beyond rad. Can't wait to see what else ends up in the shop!
