Busy Sewing Away!

I have to brag slightly about my business. I am so happy at the progress that I have made from the time I started my business a little over a year and a half ago. I started by selling one Key Fob a week. Although it may not seem like much, every time I sold one I would call my mom (KeetaCollection) to share my excitement!! I am in college and was working a part time job 20-30 hours a week making near minimum wage. I found it hard to keep up with my grades while spending a good amount of time outside of the apartment. So when I started my Key Fob business, I quit my part time job. I am happy to say that I have progressed from selling one Key Fob every week to selling enough on etsy and through other wholesale orders so that I am consistently making more than I was working at the grocery store. :)

On another note, this week has been great. I have sold quite a few key fobs through etsy as well as a few wholesale key fob orders and then I have one order of 80 key fobs. This order happens to be for a school. Someone for their PTA ordered 80 of them for their Teacher Appreciation week. They wanted something somewhat cheap and useful to give to the Teachers. I think this is a great idea for teacher appreciation. This order was so exciting for me to receive. As I said before, I would always call my mom to tell her about my first few sales when I got started. I got this order late at night....darn I had to wait until morning to call!!
