As a merchant who sells a product, I have my doors open daily and I wait for the people to come. Like Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams the saying "Build it and they will come"... I sew it and hope they love it!
I love my customers. They are so lovely, fun, crazy, energetic, gentle... I get the whole gamut. That is what makes my job fun and interesting. The personalities are so varied and interesting. Even more fun are their kids!
I make the clothing for children. Who can be more fun than a child? I love when I receive photos of your kids in my clothes! It is such a precious treat! It is why I do it. They look so cute and they inspire me. The best part is that my clothing is not mass produced. It is as custom as it gets! This is a photo I received... I was again very happy!
Or they may have seen me on facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lexington-KY/CRADLE-WILL-ROCK/216763549279
which means they would have either been lead to my store or to my etsy page.
