My first HAFshop sale !
« on: September 08, 2010, 01:04:22 PM »
Well, I must first thank Andrew for convincing me to keep my shop open. I almost closed it which is why there is so little in it. Today I got my first sale here and I am excited! It was the silver spiral ring I just listed. Guess I'll need to make some more and get them listed! ;)
Just wanted to share my excitement with you!

Oooooh, yeah.  Etsy had to start somewhere too, y'know.  people are finding the HAFshop and it's going to get big.  With all of us getting in on the ground floor, we'll be the first "established" shops there.

Thanks everyone!! I think I will make some more of those rings. Need to buy more wire first though.

I do have a feeling this site is going to be the new Etsy or Artfire, but without all the BS they have!  :police:

Thanks so much for the thought of us being able to compete with Etsy and Artfire. That is what I'm hoping but I will never let the site get as big as Etsy, not sure how big artfire is. I have a goal for how many vendors I want and then I'll shut down registration and start a waiting list. Well that is my hope anyway. Sites like Etsy are just too big and I don't want our vendors to get lost in the madness.

Another big difference is that you actually LISTEN to your sellers.  What an odd concept!   ;)

I dunno, I've been demanding for a long time that sellers be paid in chocolate, but I've yet to see that happen.

You think I could convince my mortgage company to take payment in chocolate?  I wouldn't complain.
