Wow! Etsy just totally made my day (make that my year)! I just found out that I was selected as one of the "Fresh Emerging Shops" on Etsy! I have only been selling here since August, but have been lucky enough to have a strong following built through etsy, my social networking sites, etc.
I certainly acknowledge that I had some serious work to do in the beginning to build a strong shop and I just focused on the (major) basics: photography, promotion, and persistence. Luckily it has been paying off for me and the other sellers selected for this gift guide! [I'm the shop selling the camera!] Please visit my shop as well as all the other shops selected!
