Realized that I actually have a couple of the commerce BBs already, so I’m going to try to get the proof together over the next couple days!
I made a denim whale from old hole-y jeans and a combination of a couple patterns I found online just for fun and posted it on social media. A friend of mine saw it and commissioned another from me! The original designer requested that people not sell items made from their pattern, and I wanted to alter the way the tail was attached anyway, so that worked out.
I don’t have in-progress photos of the second whale being made, but I’m hoping that’s enough to prove it.
We had a few extra Ducks, Rabbits and small Mushroom logs. When folks buy our animals or produce we always include a short pamphlet telling them all the cool things that what they are buying will help them out with. Ducks are great mousers, help build ponds and keep smaller predators away , Rabbits are Friends you can eat, but also make you little compact balls of fertilizers for easy placement in your house plans or garden plots. We also include basic care instructions, our email and phone number if they happen to have any questions. Included below is one transaction that day via square.
We run an Etsy store, LittleSproutingSeeds, from which we sell natural jewelry, crocheted crafts (using wool rescued from the waste stream via charity stores, home clearance, etc.) and plants that we have cultivated on our property. All of our products are as sustainable as we can realistically make them. Etsy seems to be a good outlet for these products and we have had some really positive feedback so far. As we acquire a large plot (in the works) and free up some more time, we hope to expand this venture with home-spun wool, additional plants and items made from timber that we have grown on-site.
To clarify, "we" is my partner and I. I am responsible for the jewelry and she is responsible for the crocheted products. We make all of our products, however. I've attached another image showing the sales for just the lemon thorn tapers which, alone, exceed $50.
Mike Haasl flagged this submission as an edge case BB. BBV price: 0 Note: Luke, could you clarify if "you" made AND sold the items or if it was a "we" situation. All BBs have to be something you do by yourself.
I sold an original watercolor painting to a friend for $50. It was inspired by a picture of a llama that she took on her trip to Peru. We had some great conversation about the permaculture like practices of the indigenous people who like and farm there currently as well as the amazing agro-forestry that was practiced by the ancient civilizations of Peru. This painting, as is true most of my painting subject, is of something that could be found on a permaculture sight. I also give a nod to permaculture values by using Daniel Smith watercolor paints which is a brand that does not use the heavy metals found in many paint brands. They have the highest environment standards in the industry.
This is a software alpha sale (pre-pre-presale) of a mealworm breeding/production calculator, for generating mealworm goodness intended to be used as feed treats for chickens, etc. The package that the client purchased was an early alpha + fully supported beta when the software is open, and the lifetime of the software's support. It's actually kinda nifty software, too. Lot of research went into it. The cost was 30 USD, but the client is from Germany, and had issues with the processing fee to round it to an even thirty, so gave me a few dollars tip. haha
EDIT: I accidentally missed Client name blocking in the original screenshot. I also added a preview image of the alpha calculator, per request.
my neighbor started a new diet and wanted to only eat steak and eggs. I cannot yet oblige the steak, but hope to be able to next year. He wanted only the best eggs. This conversation happened in person, so it may seem contrived, but i needed proof somehow since it'd be hard to show the actual transaction without compromising my OpSec. Gave him a discount for using my favorite form of capital: crypto!
