Every few days a new or relatively undiscovered Etsy shop is chosen as a "victim,” and at a given time multiple buyers all visit the site and buy one or more items each, resulting in a whole slew of surprise business in a very short time. It’s a great way to give a big boost to a new Etsy shop!

Today's sneak attack will be at 3:00pm EDT. We can all meet here and chat a bit until it's time. Bring a friend or 2. Today's shop has items from 2.00- 10.00 !Get your Christmas list out and get a few presents taken care of today! Wouldn’t it be great if we could buy out the entire shop?

How to participate: Go to this site- www.handmademovement.com/ at or soon after the time of today's attack and you'll see the chosen shop name. Then go to that shop and purchase an item, making sure to include the words "Sneak Attack" in the "message to seller". The shop owner will also be informed of what is happening so they know just what is going on. Don't worry about being too late for the attack. If the shop name is still up there, you can still go and make a purchase!

Anyone never heard of these before? They're a lot of fun! Use this thread to ask any questions if you're curious about how to participate...

I was a recent victim and really appreciated the boost in sales and confidence! I won't be available at 3:00, but will definitely stop by handmademovement.com once I'm available. Best of luck with today's ambush!

Excellent! One of my biggest difficulties in promoting the "Sneak Attacks" is to try to convince people that they can participate even if they show up several hours after one officially begins, so I'm glad to hear it!

I show up to nearly all of these late! It is kind of nice, since sellers have time to restock sometimes!

OK, one hour until we shop! I had to run to Lowe's and get some paint for the living room lol. I can't wait to let this person feel like I did when I was "attacked"! :D
