Hitting 1000 Sales on Etsy

It took my many years, but I finally reached the milestone of 1,000 sales in my Etsy shop, Indulge Your Shelf .  I've had so much fun with the shop over the years!  In fact, I started this blog specifically as a way to help market the shop!  It felt so good to finally get to 1000!

Back in town, went to the gym we put our membership on hold at last year at the beginning of the pandemic and got signed back up again.  And all I could think was... I'm back!
