Welcome to The Daily Sweets

A great group of Etsy (primarily) artists, that initially bonded on a challenge almost 2 years ago! I think that April 15, 2008 would be the date, and our founder, Chrissy, posed this simple challenge in the Etsy fora: list an item every day for a month.

When the month was over, we had all had such a good time getting to know and support each other, that we just couldn't let it go. The original group had around 20 members, and about 10 of those original are still active with the group, myself included. We number around 36 right now, but that fluctuates as members come and go, and sometimes come back.

So how did the challenge work out? We all had improved sales and activity. We had a few newbies to Etsy, and we made our first sales. Now, we may not always list an item a day, the our goal is to create every day.

Bottom line, we're supportive and not a strict bunch. If you can't list an item a day because life gets in the way, that's okay. We value quality products and excellent customer service in our business world. In our personal world, positivity, honesty and integrity are just a few of the words I would use to describe us.

Stop in and get to know the Sweets. We'll have interviews and features, and much more.
