Trading with other Etsy sellers is not only fun, it is a great way to get ideas for your own shop and to build relationships with your peers.
This week Blue Eyed Night Owl and I made a swap. What a great experience! She made me a custom bookmark/headband in exchange for a custom journal. The journal became more exciting to work on the more I got to know her. It felt like I was making a special gift for a close friend. Plus, her journal is the first of my items to be shipped internationally!
The owl bookmark she made me is so cute! I'm sure my books and I will wear it often. The handwritten note that arrived with it was a nice personal touch, and she included a bonus brooch since I was her 50th customer. Visit her shop--I'm sure you'll see something you'll like.
And if you've never done a trade, I highly recommend it!
The picture is crummy, but I hope you can see my excellent new headband/bookmark! Thanks, Laura!
