Original Post

The "Make Someone's Day" thread was the creation of Phippsart, when he posted the following:

Remember YOUR first sale and how GREAT it felt? Chances are you did a victory dance and told your family or a close friend the great news. You were on a high the rest of the day!

You have the power to help someone else feel that way...today! The challenge is this: Find a shop where someone has had no sales or a shop that has not had a sale in awhile. Buy an item you like and you've just made their day!

A great way to find sellers waiting for their first sale is the "pounce" feature:


It doesn't have to be expensive. A lot of us are on VERY tight budgets, but there are many affordable items that almost anyone can afford. Go make that purchase and PLEASE come back and tell use what you found! In previous threads we've heard stories of sellers who wrote their first buyers with excited "thank you's".

We would love to see what you did to Make Someone's Day or if you are a shop owner that just made their first sale how it made you feel ;)

Neat card by littlepapercrafts! And you were their first sale, so I'm sure they're thrilled!

I am off to find something too!

I love shopping in pounce but my latest purchase never arrived so fingers crossed it does :)
