First Sale!

Folklure had it's first sale on May 3! I am both pleased and surprise that it took only one week of my shop being open before a sale :) i expected a longer waiting period before i got noticed but alas, I ROCK ;)

My first sale was to a girl in Australia! you gotta love globalization! I've never shipped anything international before so i was a litte lost at the post office with all the forms to fill -_- everything worked out though and i can't wait to receive feedback! The item that sold was the Tattered Twist necklace.

The first 5 customers of my shop recieve a free gift as part of my 'grand opening' promotion. I made a pair of earrings similar to the Jasper Halo Earrings on sale, but i used a regular bead for the center instead of a stone. I meant to take a picture but of course i forgot. Oh well, i'll be making more of them for the next 4 customers! i'll also be recreating the Tattered Twist neckalce in different fabric colors soon.

When it came to package the items i wanted basic white jewelry boxes with Folklure's name and site stamped on them. I was pretty bummed to find out the ink easily rubbed off the boxes (i guess they are coated or something) so i decided to do this instead:

My cutting isn't precise and neither is my stamping but i like it that way :)

Now that i have had my first sale i have 'rewarded' myself by getting some BUSINESS CARDS!
which means i'm legit now ;)
i ordered them off and i'm pretty psyched to see them.

ok,this is a pretty lame picture but it is the only one i could download from their site. Basically one side will feature a picture from my shop, and what is really cool is that moo lets you have more than just one picture in the same order. So i chose about 10 of my favorites pictures. Then the other side i added my banner and basic info such as shop url,website and email. I'll put up more pics once i get them in the mail :)

Now i would like to show thanks to my blog followers with a BLOG EXCLUSIVE COUPON!

This coupon will be featured on the right hand side of my site from now on to remind all my readers of the savings they receive as a Folklure friend :)

Well that is that, i'll be leaving y'all with this beautiful,dreamy,magical,inspiring treasury that yours truly has made ;)
