Yes, People, Twitter Works!

Ho-Hum Is all that Tweeting Worth It?
Just this morning I got a direct message from a lovely lady from the UK. She follows me on twitter and reads my blog...she saw the patterns I talked about two days ago and had yet to list on Zibbet. The direct message was to tell me she wanted to buy! Of course I got on the stick and got them listed and she bought them both today. Fun! I was kind of wondering if Twitter really works for business, but now I have proof positive that it does! My first Zibbet sales! All that tweeting is not only fun, but beneficial. A great way to increase customer base and make new friends from all over the world!

Have ya ever???


One of my favorite things to look for and find are vintage patterns. Before listing them, however, I always like to check to be sure all pieces are there. I know the retro look is so "in" right now and these fashions are being recreated.
Yesterday was my day to go through my newest finds so that I could get them listed. Its quite a job. Have ya ever taken a wedding dress pattern out of the envelope and then tried to put it back in? It reminded me of Dick Van Dyke trying to push all those walnuts back into the closet! If you know what I'm talking about, you know about old I am! ha!
Anyway, I "got er done" and thankfully I only found one pattern (doll clothes) that was missing a piece.
My dilemma, do I put all those piece of the bride dress back in and potentially ruin the envelope? Or do I leave pieces outside the envelope, nicely fold and mail them that way...hmm.. What do you think?
Must get to listing these, so watch for more patterns in my zibbet shop soon!
