First Sale Today!

(Louise Jones) #1

Hello everyone,

I had my first sale on here today! Sold one of my triangle necklaces. I am so excited. I think this is a bit normal but in my little brain I am starting to worry she wont like it. Did anyone else feel like this after their first sale?

Yes, its a crafters curse. Just trust that your work isnt mass produced and you paid attention to detail and your design is unique.

Well done on your sale. Allow yourself to feel good about it.

Great start! First of many I hope!

Congratulations on your sale

Try to make your photos and descriptions as clear as possible so that the buyer knows what they are getting, then there’s absolutely no reason for them not to like it but yes, I always worry too!

Congratulations - I’m sure there’ll be many, many more.

Yes, every time I worry lol.

Glad its not just me who worries loads then. :slight_smile:

Congratulations on your first sale.
I still worry and hope and pray the customer is happy with their purchase.
I think it comes with putting our hearts and souls into what we make.

Thats a shame it was quite a long reply really. I can see that your getting on ok with the forums so the advice I had would be a bit late now as your doing everything I would have suggested. Its lovely to meet other sellers on here and to feel a bit like part of a community, and its nice to know everyone else is the same when it comes to our worries over sales etc. Nice to speak to you and good luck.


(Sue Beacham) #17

Thanks Lou, see you around, I will come to your shop to buy on payday, I love your Jewellery and could do with some new ones.

have a good evening Lou

Hi lounge
Well done on your first sale.
It’s very exciting when it happens. I’m like you.and everyone else get so nervous about if they will like what iv made.
All my friends tell me off for it.

I hope you get many more sales in the future.

Ops just seen what my mobile did to your name. It automatically changes words it’s very annoying

ha ha auto-correct on mobiles, Iv had a few incidents when I have been texting people with auto-correct! I think anyone who is creative always worries that their art/crafts are not good enough, and have the nerves when someone buys something.
