1000th sale from our Cantaloupe Corner Etsy shop!
It has been thrilling watching that number climb daily, One or two sales at a time. It makes me feel all nostalgic thinking back on my very first sales. I hadn't even learned how to screen print yet. I was individually stencilling every shirt. And I loved it! Every sale from 1 to 1000 has been just as exciting as the one before it.
I just wanted to leave a simple THANKS to all of our customers who have helped us to build my little business and making it what it is today. I still think of Cantaloupe Corner as my playtime. I enjoy creating and printing shirts, and interacting with all of you. I have met some amazing people along the way. The best part has been everything I have learned! I have learned that selling t-shirts isn't about selling cheap, or spouting out sales and links anywhere I can. It's about really listening and caring about my customers. I get so excited when I get emails from you telling me about the great train birthday party you are putting together, or about how much your child loves tractors or ninjas. I have been able to meet so many moms that are just like me.
So thanks for teaching me more about myself and what a girl from a small town in Arizona can do. It's amazing what a dream, some ambition, and a little time can do.
Now on to 2000!
