Treasury makes FP!

My Navy merino beanie has had it's fair share of exposure in the last week, firstly on the Australian Etsy Blog. Then Nic from VintagePrincipessa included it in her latest treasury, which this morning made the Front Page on Etsy.

I was lucky enough to get two go's on the front page as the treasury that followed sold a few listings bumping my beanie into that FP also, double the exposure!

So, thank you Nic for the treasury, the exposure and an exciting weekend.

Little Kiwi's Nest

Little Kiwi's Nest was created by two stay at home mums (Amy and Suzan) who saw the need for a professional way to sell unique handmade items from home. It showcases the most adorable handcrafted items, focusing on babies through to five year olds. With independant designers producing beautiful, original items ready to send direct from their 'nest' to yours.

Even though this site has only been launched over a week ago it is already attracting attention and sales. There is a good cross selection of products for the under 5's and new shops will be coming soon. The site is easy to navigate! (Always a bonus!).

Australian Etsy Blog

I have received a surprise convo via Etsy letting me know that I am one of 6 New Zealanders featured on the above blog. (Pays to check the emails before going to bed as it has ended a really good day perfectly!) Thanks Nic from VintagePrincipessa. You may want to drop by her Etsy shop and view her collection of beautiful and unique vintage wedding gowns and princess prom dresses. They are breathtaking!
