Selling on the internet is so anonymous. I've gotten used to that. I've also developed what I consider to be friendships with people that I've never met -- customers who I've sold to for years, vendors, etc.
Today I met one of my Etsy clients. It was so funny. She was visiting her son -- a metro police officer where I live -- and she noticed that I sell my work at the Pyramid Atlantic Community Arts Store in Silver Spring. She popped in! Such a simple thing you would think... but it was so fun and exciting to put a face with and Etsy client!
Thanks, and hope you love all the earrings!
