I was rejected from 1000 Markets - anyone know how they make their decisions? I've done pretty well over the last couple weeks with my little shop, although sales have just stopped over the past couple of days, so I'm not sure why they would reject me! I'd love to see if anyone else has any ideas... Thank you for lending an ear and your thoughts. :(

I have heard that many people were rejected, but then kept trying and ended up being accepted later on.

I'm not familiar with that, but bummer for you :( Nobody hates rejection. Maybe next time....?

I looked at your shop and think they made a mistake. It's their loss.

I got rejected for the 1000 Handmade Cards Book. At least, they never replied to me, and I didn't make the book, so I guess that meant I was rejected. LOL But, I am published elsewhere. If you put yourself out there, you will always be rejected somewhere, by someone. But, there will also be people who want you! :-)

Sorry Bookwormz! Your stuff is great! They just don't know what they are missing!

What is 1000 Markets? Is it a craft fair? Is it a trade show?
