Since linking up with all of these other great handmade shops, I have made MANY purchases & have won a few items from these great crafters! Some of these things include earrings, a step stool, candles, sock monkey, fabric embellishments, bows, eyeshadow, purse, hats... and much more. I love to support my fellow artisans!
But what you may not know is that I also continue to promote these people, even after the transactions have ended. I try to write reviews, leave feedback, give shout-outs... AND I keep all of the business cards they send & forward them to MY customers! That's right! When I sell something from my shop, I throw in a couple of my own business cards, along with about 3-4 different business cards from the pile of business cards I've collected from other artisans. I'll never know if it has brought someone a sale, but I feel good passing along the cards anyway. :)
So if I buy something from you, send me a good little stack of cards & I'll pass them on. :)
