more from the buyers market:
i adore the interesting combination of cute, indie illustration with the borderline chunky metal pieces of chocolate and steel. christine is an excellent steward & spokesperson for her brand: she was professional, cheery, and anxious to talk about what she does – and what her booth-mate, lori di magno, does!
it’s always a joy for me to meet these kind of passionate, engaged makers. unfortunately, i wasn’t able to speak with christine very long – she was engaged by buyers the whole time!
interested in more about what christine has to say about communicating in regards to business? check out her “quit your day job” article on the storque. here’s a snippet:
I think it’s really important to acknowledge that even though we are selling primarily online and it’s seems anonymous, it’s not. We are all people with something great in common – a creative passion and a desire to follow our dreams. I’m shocked sometimes at the communication I see in the forums between people. When I meet people in real life that sell on Etsy there is an instant camaraderie because we know we share a goal. That attitude should be there in all of our communication. It will only serve your business well.
