Today I was reading http://brookberrys.blogspot.com/ blog and learned about something called a sneak attack. This is the coolest idea. You can find more info here http://www.handmademovement.com/.
Every few days a new or relatively undiscovered Etsy shop is chosen as a "victim", and at a given time multiple buyers all visit the site and buy one or more items each, resulting in a whole slew of surprise business in a very short time. In the past week a handful of shops have all been "attacked" and both the shop owners AND the buyers have had GREAT experiences.
I participated tonight and got these http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=10948412. They are adorable. I will be participating as often as I can.
