(Shame-ful) Promotion

I titled this post "Shameless Promotion" and then thought about it... That title wasn't really true. You see, I am not a salesperson. It kind of makes me nauseous to think about trying to sale something to someone. This "aversion to sales" started long ago with Girl Scout cookies. And people actually like those cookies and often want to buy them. But I always felt like I was asking my parents' friends and neighbors to buy something they might not want. "How rude of me!"

Now, here I am peddling my (homemade, unique, customizable) kids clothes on Etsy.com! And on my blog! (See the sidebar at right.) How shameful!

Not shameful at all-just smart. The words are similar in that they both start with an S?:)

Cute clothes, Jackie! And organic cotton - wow! We thought we'd have one cute girl, but instead, we got two mean boys!

I look at it as a way to provide funds for more seeds for the garden *grin*

Great clothes - love the cactus shirt. And don't think of it as selling - think of it as sharing your talents, marketing your skills or just networking ideas. The clothes will "sell" themselves they are so cute.

Very nice clothes! Good luck with this!

Good luck in selling those lovely clothes. Probably more pictures with better view may satisfy some costumers. Probably throw in some discounts like buy 5 -free 1.

Maybe you can clear your stock by christmas or wrap all of them & give away as gifts?

Thanks, ya'll. It's fun for me to create clothes...especially during the cold, dark winter when I'm not out in the garden very often!
