Blogtoberfest Day 6 - A Special Sales Milestone, Etsy AU, Triple J Unearthed and Milk & Sticks

Welcome everyone to Day 6 of Blogtoberfest on the Maddabling blog.

I recently hit my 50th Sale on ETSY to a lovely Aussie buyer. It has taken many years but I finally got there !

I made her something a little extra special for this milestone sale, to match the necklace she purchased - a custom bracelet ! I think they make a lovely set. This buyer also gave me some of the best feedback I think I have ever received :

"A fantastic etsy experience! Very well made jewellery with lovely packaging and great shipping. The seller herself is very friendly, helpful, and really just plain awesome! My purchase was her 50th sale so she offered to make me a little something extra-the result was a beautiful matching bracelet. The kind of etsy experience you always hope for !"

I think the personalised service a seller can offer to a customer on Etsy is a wonderful thing, you can create a truly memorable, holistic handmade experience!Viva La Handmade !

Oh and while on the topic of ETSY, there is a new page for Australian ETSY Sellers on Facebook, EtsyAU

The Etsy Australia page states :
