Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Not only is it a time for me to spend quality time with family and friends and eat some (ok, a lot) comfort food, it’s a time for me to reflect on how the year has gone so far. 2014 has been an incredibly year for me – and for aftcra. I have so much to be thankful for, and it’s all because of people like you. Because of that, we are giving thanks this Thanksgiving to all of our aftcra supporters.
aftcra has grown leaps and bounds this year. For example, aftcra site visits have jumped up 300% since the beginning of the summer. We’ve nearly reached 900 sellers (900!) – that’s awesome! Our social media presences have consistently grown throughout the year. We’ve been featured in so many publications throughout 2014, including the Huffington Post. So many exciting moments for all of us, and it makes us wonder what’s next for aftcra and all of it’s talented artisans.
You know what’s unbelievable? That we’ve only gotten this far because of you. Because of your support aftcra has become a great alternative handmade marketplace. We are truly appreciative of your support, your patience (especially as we’ve hit some growing pains here and there), and your promotion to other artisans and handmade enthusiasts as we grow.
So, as we all reflect on what we’re thankful for, we want to give a special thanks to you.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving today, and here’s to some good vibes for the holiday season!
