Yesterday I finally opened my Etsy store! The shop had been ready to go for over a week, but I just couldn’t bring myself to take that final step and make it live. I guess that fear was holding me back again. Last night Reubs convinced me it was time to take the plunge and held my wobbly hand as I apprehensively clicked “open”…
Then this morning I woke up to discover I’d already made my first sale! I could hardly believe it. I’m taking it as a good sign.
I’ve named my shop Dear Delilah, after our sweet Daisy Delilah dog. The name was something I struggled with a bit, but in the end Dear Delilah just felt right. I’ve also created a facebook page for the shop, so if any of you would like to receive updates, information on special offers and sneak peeks of new products you can “like” Dear Delilah over there. I’d love that!
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who has urged me to take this step and launch my little store. Running an Etsy business has been a dream of mine for such a long time, and it feels wonderful to be finally making it happen. I owe so much to the kind words of encouragement offered here. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
