On Thursday September 3, I am co-sponsoring a S.N.E.A.K. Attack with TinkersShop! The avatar theme in the thread, for those who feel like puttin' on a "special outfit," is The Birds and The Bees.
Haven't heard about Sneak Attacks yet?
Two days per week, one to three Etsy shops with few or no sales are 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. It’s a great way to give a big boost to new Etsy shops!
Thursday's sneak attack will be at 7:00 PM EDT.
You can participate by going to The Handmade Movement at or soon after 7:00pm and you'll see the chosen shop's names listed. Then go to that shop and purchase an item, making sure to include the words "Sneak Attack" in the "message to seller". The shop owners will also be informed of what is happening so they know just what is going on. Don’t worry about being too late for the attack! If the shop names are still up there, you can still go and make a purchase!
Even if you can't make a purchase you can still help by giving the thread listed on the website an occasional bump and spreading the word.
