Hi Friends of Heart Space,
I am frying slowly in Portland, Oregon. It's the third day of a killer heat wave. The forecast for today is one hundred eight degrees! And it's not dry heat, either. It's putting me in the mood to let go of all this stuff that has been sitting around in my store. It's putting me in the mood to earn enough gas money to take us to a much-earned trip to the sea side for a day soon. If I make 50-100 dollars I could pay for gas and take us out to dinner. Anyway, I'm going to try.
Here's the plan. If you're a follower of my blog and order before August Fifth, I'll give you a 10% discount on any item. Such a deal! The prices are already quite low.
Surely someone out there is about to drive down to some mall or other to pick up a gift for someone. (We do it out of habit without even thinking.) Well, I don't blame you if you have no Air conditioning and are having a heat wave like ours. But wait, you could be purchasing a handmade, fair trade item from yours truly! I'll gift wrap it for free, too! What could be more easy? Well, I know some of you love the thrill of the shopping hunt. So. . . .
Go ahead and troll the mall. I bet I can beat their prices and you will still enjoy the air conditioned walk. Here's the link - http://www.heartspace.etsy.com
P.S. For those who don't know: the link is to my shop on etsy.com, a site where millions of artisans compete for attention from potential buyers. It is not unusual for a newer store to only have a few sales like mine does. It is no reflection on the quality of my work. I don't have money to advertise, etc. This blog is about it. Luckily I do sell my work in person, too. Still, it would be great to sell more and build a business that has many outlets.
