How often do you get repeat customers?

I have quite a few repeat customers. It makes me feel good when I see the same person coming back for more :)
Without a doubt a very large portion of my business is return customers! I have some that have been with me since my first year in business and they have literally bought dozens upon dozens of my pieces (and no, I promise you, its not just my Mom! *grin*). Like others have stated, once they purchase from me they see the high quality of my work, especially the precision in my wire wrapping, the care I take in finishing my pieces, and with that high quality, plus a variety of unique plus classic designs, high quality gemstones and excellent customer service brings most of my customers back for more.

I am utterly and profoundly grateful for each one of my customers and adore getting to know my collectors. My customers know how highly I value them and I reward their loyalty to my work. *grin*
I get them quite often in this shop.
None so far. But then, more then half of my customers have been people who joined Etsy the same day they bought from me or people who've been here for a little while but are making their first purchase from me. The former tend to disappear without leaving feedback, and the latter have left some very nice compliments.
The other half is mostly other sellers who just need one special little thing... :)
About 2/3 of my customers are repeats, they come back any where from once a year to every couple of weeks..:)
I don't know if this counts as a repeat customer but my customers have really helped build my business by giving my information to their friends and family who have seen my product on the bride's bouquet. So I guess that's kind of like repeat business. I also have many brides come back later to order ornaments for Christmas and I've had people start buying their annual Christmas ornament from me. I don't count how many are repeats.
