Wild ride

It turns out that I was worrying about all the wrong things. The problem wasn't demand.

It was supply. Or more accurately, getting the supply to the people.
Everything was right on track until 11:54 AM. That's when Piper went outside and came back in on three legs, screaming at the top of her lungs. Darcy joined in. It was so loud.
still limping almost three hours later
I caught Piper and determined that her injuries were not life threatening. Then I went back to my studio. It was 12:02. My sale was already two minutes late. No big deal, I thought, as I clicked on the "publish all" button. Except then it was a big deal, because none of my listings would load.
Of course, while this was happening, my notifications were pinging away. "Did I miss it?" "What's happening?" "Has everything sold?"
I switched gears and started publishing items individually. Then I tried another group upload, and this time it worked. My BreyerFest sale went live at 12:09 PM and sold out eleven minutes later. 
That was scary, frustrating and exhilarating all at the same time. Welcome to BreyerFest!

  8. Pets sure are great at providing very poorly timed minor emergencies! I was very disappointed that my phone wasn't playing nice so I never even saw the items get loaded, but congrats to everyone who snagged something!
