Almost 2 years ago my sister and I started selling our hair accessories on Etsy. We had been selling strictly to boutiques wholesale and weren't quite sure if we wanted to get into selling straight to the end consumer.
A couple months after we had started selling on Etsy, I was scrolling through one of my favorite photographer's blogs, Kate Moss at Peek A Boo photos. Kate and I have a couple mutual friends, which is how I started blog stalking her. Anyway, I was browsing through her site one day and realized some of the headbands on the sweet little babes were from us!! I was so excited!! I quickly emailed Kate, introduced myself, and we have been friends ever since!! I adore Kate's (and Dan's) work and I LOVE seeing her photograph our products! She is amazing and it is easy to see through the gorgeous portraits she takes for her clients! I am lucky to have met her!
So...this brings me to a fun little story I wanted to tell. Amanda, one of our most devoted customers, who owns literally almost everything we sell, got a fun surprise from her husband Ian recently. For her birthday, he surprised her with a map and showed her where they would be flying...all the way from sunny Florida up to Snowy Utah to get pictures with PeekABoo photos!! He knew how much she admired the pictures she saw on our website, and although he didn't quite get why they needed to fly all the way from FL to get their family pictures done, he did it anyway!! Now that they have these priceless pictures, he sees why and is grateful for them too!!
It's people, customers, friends like this, SO MANY of you that make this little business so fun!! It's working with WONDERFUL photogrpahers that make this SO FUN!! I am SO grateful for amazing customers, wonderful photogrpaher friends and fun stories like these that make this all worthwhile!!
