Sales Are Crazy!

I do believe June 2008 has become my biggest sales month in this jewelry biz so far! Etsy is still my old reliable friend, with fairly consistant, but mostly low-dollar sales. But for some reason that lacks real explanation, has seen a HUGE increase! The only think I can think of that I changed was that I submitted my URL to maybe 100 different free search engines and directories a few weeks ago. Other than that, maybe karma decided to give me a break to help pay for my dentist/medical bills that arose this month? Even Boyfriend is making out this month, between getting paid for his first book illustration job, his tax rebate finally coming, and winning a contest at work, its like he made an extra two-months' wages!

This extra money is much-needed right now and aside from (hopefully) dinner and a movie this weekend, we're not going to splurge on anything. Yes dear readers, even a great sales month in the life of an independent crafter does not allow for a whole new wardrobe!

Congratulations!! That's fantastic and it sounds like it comes at a much needed time. Dental/medical bills suck (I'm dealing with the dental part)!
