Sneak Peek: Motivational Challenge for Etsy Maineteam!

It's about that time of year, where sales started showing, and store shelves are filled with holiday paraphanelia. But I feel that Camelot's Treasures and Mallory Alisabeth are not stocked enough to support a successful holiday season, and I find myself a little slacking in the producing and listing department right now.

So what better way to motivate myself, than having a challenge along with some other Etsy Maineteamers!

This challenge will only be opened to Etsy Maineteamers that want to push themselves in filling their shops and preparing themselves for a wonderful, and profitable holiday! Starting on October 1st through October 28th, I am challenging any willing participants to list at least 5 new items in their shop every week (totaling at the end to a nice 20 items by the end of the challenge). Those that succeed in this challenge, will then be entered into a drawing on October 30th, for a special gift package of lovelies! YAY for prizes! (*** If you are a Etsy Maineteamer, and would like to be added to this challenge, please comment on this post with your name and shop URL and I will add you to the list - please comment by Thursday morning!)

PLUS, as an added bonus, I'm throwing in a special drawing/giveaway/challenge to ANY one that is following the progress of this challenge. People will be able to enter by commenting on the specified blog (when it's posted - don't worry I'll let you know!) and also can earn an additional entry by making a treasury that will feature some of the participants in the challenge. Also on October 30th, I will hold a drawing for that also, and some lucky winner (or maybe 2?) will recieve some special goodies! But more details on all of this in a few days.

So all in all, a great way to help fellow Etsy maineteamers, and a fun way to get free stuff! Keep checking back for details - will be OFFICIALLY posting on this Friday (October 1st)!
