A couple of days ago I got a very nice surprise as I was checking my Etsy shop inbox messages. I got a message from a customer who had bought one of my works. Along with the message, she attached some pictures of her wearing my work!! It's an obidome with koi fish on it. I was so happy!!
I felt so touched by this gesture. As an Etsy seller who doesn't have money to promote, a good review or a photo from customers will make my shop look good. But I can't force a customer to write a review or even take a picture of them wearing my work if they're busy. So when they actually write a good review or even take a picture of them with my work, it's immensely appreciated.
A customer who sent me a picture of her wearing yukata and an obidome that I'd made lives very far away from me. She lives in USA. Not only picture, she had also given me a wonderful review before that.
And this is her in yukata.
