I had my first sale in real life to my little Sis :) She bought the red beaded bowl and my first online sale went to a very lovely friend who had seen my things a couple of weeks ago and earmarked a pincushion which she bought through the shop :)
I also have an enquiry from another lovely friend - I am blessed to have a few of them in my life ;) - about making a custom order for the coasters in a bowl...
So, thanks to them Lusciously Loopy is off the starting blocks ;)
To be honest I hadn't expected to sell anything for ages.
I am happy for things to happen organically. As time goes on I will add more designs and products and see what happens.
I am not just going to sit back and expect things to happen cos that would be a bit silly ;)) I will obviously be working to get these things seen both online and in real life. I aim to attend craft fairs locally but have to research so I get the right ones for my products . I need to make the stock and work out how to make the table appealing and display the products well...So work to do on that over the next few months...
Once the stock I have already created is put on Etsy I will work towards creating some items to show to local retailers. I have details of shops that might be interested and a contact to a Made in Cumbria site with outlets that sell online..
As I grow and learn things will change.... be that the things I create or the places that I sell them..
The first steps have been made.....Now to see where they lead to ;))
