Papoose Clothing Turns Three

Three years ago this week, I attended my very first street fair where I officially began selling Papoose Clothing. It was exciting and a little bit sad how I managed to get everything together. I didn't make too many sells, but I was determined to persevere! I had so much fun designing and making the sweet little clothes, I thought maybe if I had a larger audience, I could perhaps sell my designs. Thus, I turned to Etsy where shop owners HAVE to be on top of their games to be able to stand out in the crowd and make sells.


I love what Etsy is founded on, a community of handmade artists encouraging and supporting each other. It has grown so much from the few years I have been on it, and now there are so many options to choose from a single search inquiry. There is a lot of competition in children's clothing, especially on Etsy, so it's forced me to be that much more sincere, personable, creative, and hardworking. It takes a lot to succeed in business and on Etsy, but I'm excited about how far I've come and where I'm going!

I've managed to go from a few unrelated and not thought out items to releasing two collections every year. I am much more focused and organized, and I know exactly the ins and outs of my business and what it stands for. A huge milestone for me was having my own website, which is too exciting! There are lots of little hoorays I could go on about, and I guess I'm just overjoyed at my little side project blossoming into a business because Papoose turns three this week!

 
To celebrate this momentous occasion, I am offering a special discount for this week only with 30% off your entire purchase at the Etsy shop!
