Original Post

HURRAH, It's our One Year anniversary for the Bittersweeets Challenge. Most of us are having a sale for this special occasion. Check out each person's announcement for details. SALE dates are April 10th to 13th. --------------------------------------------------


Welcome to the official thread for the Bittersweeets One a Day challenge. Our group formed when we accepted Bitterweeets' challenge to create an item a day beginning April 15th 2008 to May 15th 2008 -- the goal was to improve activity in shops.

We all had improved sales and activity. We had a few newbies to Etsy, and we made our first sales. At the end of the challenge, we've got attached to each other so we kept on hanging out together here each week. While we may not always list an item a day, the goal is to create an item a day.

Bottom line, we're supportive and not a strict bunch. We value quality products and excellent customer service. If you share these views, then jump right in and we'll help you along.

Oopsy! sorry Fen, didn't see the new post. So what is everyone doing for the sale next weekend?? I was thinking free shipping but I might do a percentage off sale. What does everyone think?

Kylie, I replied to ya in the other one too... just said that we're not really that special after all LOL

I haven't decided on mine yet. I can go either way.

I wasn't here for the sale discussions. One thing for sure though... I'm not going to edit 88 listings. It's refund only.

I wish etsy made it easier for handling sales. In ebay, you just click all the listings and have it apply your sale in one swoop. {{sigh}} I have 93 listings up now. I'm tempted to list some supplies to bring me to 100. I have some cute ceramic buttons. Not sure how to price them so I need to do some research.

missed the thread at first too.

Ginny- cool business card holders!

Yeah, I still don't know what people meant by 'Chicago accent'.
Fen, you sounded normal to me to. Ha, a friend of mine from Milwaukee says "bubbler." Some Wisconsin people I've talked to say things like "Wisgonsin" and "beg" instead of "bag"
