You see, over the weekend, a buyer from Canada purchased three of my 18x18 in. Marimekko green ombre pillow covers. Just like this guy:
That in and of itself is pretty cool. What's even better is how the buyer found me. He sent me this note:
Wait....what?!?! My pillow cover was featured in one of the largest newspapers in Canada???You may be interested to know that I became aware of your Marimekko ombre green pillow covers in a feature in our national newspaper, The Globe and Mail. The Saturday edition includes a Style section.
The pillow covers are going to complement a very large piece of glass, a bowl by Canadian glass artist, Mariel Waddell.
After a quick search I found it.
The Globe and Mail's story about adding a dash of ombre to your home.
Do you see it? It's my pillow cover!!
Since the story didn't list my shop specifically, and I'm in Chicago, I probably wouldn't have learned about the feature unless somebody had told me.
I'm OK with that. I'm growing my business slowly and organically. If I had a huge rush in sales, I would be busy out of my mind. I'd rather have a balance between my personal and business life, especially since I have a full time job.
A feature like this is the cherry on top of a job well done :)
