It may be a small store, currently with only 15 onesies for sale, all with different patterns, in different sizes, but I’m trying to get people I don’t know to buy my shit. How do I do that. Im in PR. I know how to reach reporters, but thats not what I need. I need a small enough push that I sell what I make, but not a large enough push where I over work myself and make promises I cant keep. I mean..i do want a life.
But I get so excited when I see that sale! Even if I sold to a friend I bullied into buying one.
Constantly updating Facebook?
I have created a Facebook friend list that I can blast out to of people with kids. A few new additions to my friend list from my sorority days.
But I need general “spread the word” help.
I also need new ideas to sew onto my “wunzees”. I want to hear what you would want your kid to wear…if you had one.
Here are some of my newest additions. A variety for sure…but what would you want?
blah blah self marketing, cross promoting, hey lookat me.
So I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this in the past, but I’m looking to make a little more money. Start a project of sorts. Something to do to kill time if I’m wasting time anyway…whether it be in front of the TV, or just listening to music in my room.
A while back, Mick and I started talking about silk screening onesies. Low overhead, easy to mass produce, but the only problem is that we didn’t have a silk screening machine. We tried to iron on the design, but it just turned out looking really ameteur.
So, I have started sewing onesies instead. We had gone to cheap town USA in Upstate NY when we went there in June, and had started a small stock pile of onesies that I have been messing with. I bought a bunch of scrap fabric off of ebay (more coming), and a box of buttons. Some collaboration between Mick and I for designs and ideas, and the “wunzees” concept has been started. Im the labor. He is the brains. It is a good time killer, and I might as well make some extra cash too.
So…for those of you who are having kids, or know people who are having kids….shop at my etsy store. I shared the news with my roommates…and Carly had a baby shower to go to the following day. I made my first sale!
Yes…there are only a few up there. They are all one of a kind, and I make them all by hand. I am going to be buying more onesies, in white, black and red. I will also have more felt, more thread and more ideas. The magic doesnt stop now. I also take requests. 🙂
