One of the best parts of being a small local business is that we can interact with our customers at small fairs. This is why we are looking forward to December. We are going to attend an Etsy Made Local event for the first time. It’s wonderful to be able to chat with customers face to face, we are always inspired about this. Getting feedback on sizes, colours that our customers might want is something we always care about. Some of the products that you can see right now on our website started as a special order. Having this connection with our customers is very important for us. It helps us develop and create pieces of jewellery that our customers are looking for.
Going to a local event is also wonderful because it offers the opportunity to talk with like minded people, small local business owners that make their products by hand. It’s helpful and refreshing to be able to exchange ideas, maybe even chat about suppliers.
If you are looking for something to do this weekend, search on twitter or online for an #EtsyMadeLocal event. You might discover some beautiful products you didn’t see before, and have a wonderful time doing so.
Another thing we are looking forward next month are the holidays. It’s a busy time, but we enjoy it a lot. Next week we are going to share our tips on how to chose the perfect Christmas gift for your loved ones. It’s something we thought about and, hopefully, will give you some ideas.
Meanwhile, we are enjoying a mince pie or two, while talking about the beautiful seasonal pictures we plan to take. It is a special time of the year for us, because while we are preparing orders in the roundup to Christmas, we are also thinking of our collections for next year. Every January we are launching new designs and it’s a very exciting time. Making the pieces of jewellery and deciding what to change, the size, maybe the colours. It’s a beautiful process we all enjoy immensely.
We hope you are looking forward to December too.
