Surprise Bestseller

I have had my Etsy store open for nearly two years now. I enjoy creating things that people like enough to spend their well earned money on and I love that my designs have made it to the USA, Italy and Denmark as well as all over the UK.

When I first opened my Etsy store I was mainly going to stock it with my crocheted delights and felt pincushions. Then, one night, I am not sure what came over me,but I made this:

I really do not know why I decided to make this. I lived on my own so I didn't have a problem with people not locking the door, and I even had a lock on the door if I had visitors. Why I thought an occupied sign would be my next make is a mystery - but I am glad I did it!

This little sign is now my bestseller! Out of my 37 orders, 22 of them have been my toilet signs :)
 I make them to order and have a wide range of colours - I have had no two orders the same to date.

I hope people continue to like mysigns and I hope to build up a supply of ready made ones so dispatch time will be faster and I am able to take them to craft fairs.

If you own an online shop or sell at craft fairs do you have a surprise bestseller?
I would love to hear about it, if it is an online shop don't forget to post a link!

Stay crafty,
