Going from 0 to nearly 40…

…that’s right. I went from zero to close to 40 sold items, 2.5 kilos of wool to 8.5 kilos, from three different items to almost 15…

The shop is over two months old and I’m amazed at how much it has grown. The journey hasn’t been easy – the competition, the slow sales (due to a global slowdown), criticisms & ideas from all sorts of people about the prices/photos/profit (what profit?), and sometimes just slow braindead days where I can’t seem to come up with any new colours or combos – but I’m glad I never gave up.

For more of this journey of mine, please check out the shop’s blog!

  1. Hi Mei,
    Am really touched to read about your journey with the shop this far- indeed, nothing is easy and I personally think you do an excellent job with the pics (me dropping by on a very frequent basis probably says it all).
    Keep up the good work! 😀

  2. Congrats on the success of your store! You are a fabulous fiber artist and you deserve it. I’m excitedly waiting for my rovings to arrive here in Canada. Can’t wait!

  3. Baashie: And I’m excited waiting for it to arrive!!!! Been stalking your blog since then…love the dyework you did recently – made me so itchy to do some dyeing but alas, I’m waiting for stock to arrive so looks like I’ll just have to do some spinning. XD
