Original Post

Most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, a new or relatively undiscovered Etsy shop (or shops) 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!

Tonight's sneak attack will be at 7:00 EDT. We can all meet here and chat a bit until its time. Bring a friend -- help us spread the word.

How to participate: Go to this site- at or soon after the time of tonight's attack and you'll see the chosen shop name. Then go to the shop and make a purchase, 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 s/he 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

Hello everyone!

There's a new article on the web site with the reactions from 8 of the recent shops we've "attacked". Great insight into what this is all about!
