Original Post


Three days a week, an Etsy shop (or shops) with few or no sales is chosen as a "victim," and at a given time multiple buyers all visit the shop(s) 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 and unsuspecting Etsy shop owner!

The next scheduled SNEAK ATTACK is tonight Wed, June 24nd at 7:00 PM EDT.

You can participate by going to www.handmademovement.com at or soon after the time of the scheduled attack to see the chosen shop. Then go to that shop and purchase an item (or more!), 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 what is going on. Don’t worry about being too late for the attack - if the shop names are still up, go and make a purchase!

Even if you can't make a purchase, you can still help by giving this thread an occasional bump to keep it at the top and by spreading the word about Sneak Attacks.

Until attack-time, we'll be hanging out here and chatting... so stick around and have some fun!

WARNING: Sneak Attacks can be addicting!

I'm going to try and be here tonight. I missed the last two as I was working. I love sneak attacks as I've bought some neat items.

I'm wonderful. Hubby and the oldest went to work for the landlord, so I'll get an uninterrupted day at the computer! Until about 4:30 anyway. Two of the boys have soccer tonight.
