Original Post

....before I could catch my breath and get to the forums, I'd sold 126!

I'll have been here a year Nov 26 and my scarves usually sell for $40 each, unless they're on sale or discounted (I offer a special price to my fellow Etsy shops) to $30 each.

Here are links to my success tips (I've sold over 400 scarves including "on the ground" sales), I hope they help others.

Hiya, BaDa!

I'll post in a moment about how I "work it" to encourage shoppers to buy more than one scarf (I've had several customers buy 5 or more, my record here on Etsy is EIGHT scarves so far from one customer. :)
