New Shops Revisited

Today I thought it would be nice to go back to some of the "new shops" featured in January, February and March and see what they're up to now.  It's a little worrying how many of the new shops I've featured now have more sales than me...  it does make me wonder if I should spend more time promoting my own shop instead of blogging about everybody else...  I think once I've got Buy Handmade British up and running I need to concentrate on my shop for a while.  But don't worry, I'll still keeping blogging about everybody else every day.
