Original Post

PhippsArt has put together a great way to encourage newbies and struggling shops. If you want to help, or just find out what it is all about, read on!

We get as many interested potential buyers as we can, and then at 2pm today, the shop that is due the attack with be revealed. The selected shop has 0 or just a few sales. We then give them a "sneak attack", where we all go buy something from them. It's not compulsory, but if you like something, and you can afford it, or you're buyiing your Christmas gifts already, then hell why not?

Today's' shop has already been chosen and will be "attacked" starting at 2:00pm Eastern time this afternoon (7pm GMT). The shop will be disclosed at at the time of the attack so it remains a secret until then! (There is a hint on the site telling what type of shop it is.) There are hints on the website to let you know what kind of shop it is and the price range of the items, which start from being very affordable so that as many people can join in as possible.

This will be an ongoing thing- refer to for a schedule of the next few "Sneak Attacks"!

Please leave 'sneak attack' in the notes to seller--The seller will be sent a convo shortly before the attack to let them in on the secret.

Finally, if you plan on participating, please say so in this thread to keep it alive and generate as much interest as possible. Our last sneak attack generated 39 SALES in just a few hours, we want this to be just as amazing for today's lucky "victim"!

You're all welcome to take a look at the shop, there's no obligation to buy but you might just find something you've gotta have :)

This is a brilliant idea, I love it! Hope my shop's attacked one day (never thought I'd say that:))....
