Every morning one of the first things I check online is the stats page for my Etsy shop.
I'm always hoping to see a sale (never woken up to a sale before), or at least a couple of views, maybe a favorite or two.
I woke up Tuesday morning and saw over 1000 views and 200 favorites. Huge numbers for me.
After I picked myself up off the floor and pushed my eyeballs back into my head, I had to figure out what was going on.
Turns out, my little pepper bowl is famous.
Or at least he made it on the front page. He's hot. (Get it? Pepper? Hot? Lame pun alert - groan...)
I was lucky enough to be included in this lovely treasury that was featured for awhile on Etsy's front page. It got tons of views, tons of favorites, and totally made my day. I felt like I had won the Etsy lottery.
Unfortunately, I didn't make any sales from it, but it was a really exciting experience for me to be on the front page. Here's hoping for some sales to eventually come in! October has been slow so far.
Come on holiday shoppers!
