So Euro Week at etsy has been very, very good to me. Who can say why? Maybe it's partly because I was of this interview I gave about me and my shop on the brand-spanking-new German Street Team's blog. Most likely it's because etsy featured one of my items in their Go Euro article, this stitched kitsch postcard that has always been popular but never sold.
Until now that is. Fifteen sales in five days. Whatever the reason, I'm just thanking my lucky stars not to mention my lovely customers.
Packing up the various packages has reminded me of one of the things I love about running Schaufenster: it opens up this wonderfully international network. Here I am, this little old girl finding and making things in Berlin-Kreuzberg and then sending them off to Sydney and Boise and Paris. Case in point, this dress:
This dress I bought at a second-hand shop in San Luis Obispo when I took a road trip to Southern California a couple of years ago. It sat in my closet for some time because I kept hoping I would finally loose those twenty pounds and/or the dress would magically fit me. Recently I've decided to come to terms with the fact that I simply love chocolate way more than I love sit ups or jogging. The dress will probably never fit me. Time for it to move on.
The dress was snatched by a leopard print fanatic from Israel earlier this week. From San Luis Obispo to Berlin to Jerusalem. Not bad for a little stretch of animal print cloth!
