I think there is some sort of significant here – a MILESTONE that should be noted – in reaching 1,000 sales. On this day, February 5, 2010, my Etsy shop tells me that I have 990 sales. Ten more and that is 1,000!!!!
What is the best way to mark a MILESTONE such as this in this virtual landscape of blogs and online shops? Yes, it is with a CONTEST!!! A contest with a prize that sends actual fiber into your hands!
Here is the prize, a 4 ounce roving* of Lagoon in 60% superwash merino/ 30% bamboo (from Rayon)/ 10% nylon:
So, I need to tell you the rules, right?
Post a comment on this post to be eligible to win.
Contest will run until the number of sales in my Etsy shop reaches 1,000.
I will then randomly draw a winner from the entries.
That’s it! I have no idea how long this will run so it will be interesting! And just one thing I want to note about the way Etsy marks sales; if someone buys more the one of the same item – that is only marked as one sale. I’m not sure why, but that is the way they do it.
Oh yeah, and I should tell you, I’m sure there will some extra treats sent out in the package to the person of the 1,000 MILESTONE sale!
