Well, when it rains it pours! I have sold not one, but TWO Princess Beatrice cat hats in the course of one week! How fabulous!!! I made sure to re-list the hat on Etsy quickly after the first one sold (with a note telling the next buyer to expect a one-week lead time) and the second one went in quick succession! I am guessing that the Princess Beatrice hat might make a perfect Christmas present for some royal kitty fans. Or perhaps it is perfect for Kitty New Year. Who knows…. Whatever the reason, I am as pleased as punch that I have finally sold a few more cat hats! And I am also happy that the Princess Beatrice cat hat design is very easy to reproduce!
On top of all the love that the Princess Beatrice Cat hat has been getting, the Notso Kitty Shop has also been getting lots of attention. I was at a conference last week and managed to bring up my cat hats amongst mixed company. Many people (cat haters even!) were completely amused by my silly hats. I even got many new ideas from this crowd— who knows where inspiration for cat hats will strike next?!?! I also managed to get some free legal advice around the cat hat business from this conference! Gotta seize that opportunities when you can 🙂
I made a few realizations as a result of my conference last week regarding cat hats. First, the Princess Beatrice cat hat probably missed it’s window of viral fame—- but that doesn’t mean I should stop selling it. However, my conference mates illustrated to me how important it is to keep the Notso Kitty Shop in the current pop culture moment! They helped me formulate a few more ideas— we’ll see if any of them are the ones to bring me viral cat hat fame!!! Stay tuned
