More Meaningful Gifts SAS

Last night, I was honored to host my very first SAS (Seize a Shop) on Etsy's More Meaningful Gifts (MMG) forum thread. This is a weekly event where one shop off the current BNR list is chosen randomly, and everyone shops it. There are a few rules, like having to check in to the thread daily for at least 3 days prior to SAS, and once you've been seized you have to wait 6 months to be shopped again. Buying is not mandatory to be involved, which makes it all the more special! The excitement leading up to the drawing is always contagious!

In order to host, I had to win the drawing which means last week, everyone bought from my shop. I wasn't there when it was actually happening, but I can't begin to even tell you how thrilled I was to wake up to 10 orders in my shop last Thursday morning!!! Not only did this give me a boost in sales, feedback & profits, it more importantly gave me a boost in self-confidence, self-worth & even more love for my fellow MMG-ers!

I proudly pass the torch this week to fairyloreandmore . She won last night's SAS. Just look at the lovely lavender sachets I purchased last night. I can't wait to receive them!!!
