So despite the hopefulness of my previous post, I was unable to open my shop until today. Let's just say packing and life got in the way.
But it's done. I've been adding items a lil bit at a time to make sure I keep popping up in the new seller section until I make my first sale. I even have a few new people who hearted my shop. Yay!
After a few days I will start publicizing and make a big deal of it, but I'd rather not do it while the shop has only 7 items and many more to add.
