What is a Sneak Attack?
It's a way to support independent artisans who are trying to sell their wares online. Two days a week at an appointed time, an Etsy shop with few or no sales is announced on this site. As many people as possible then heart, Tweet, Like or Buy items from that shop, resulting in a frenzy of surprise business to the unsuspecting shop! To the upper right is the current Sneak Attack schedule. To participate, show up on this site at or soon after the time of the next attack and you'll see the chosen shop name in the box to the right - in the Upcoming Sneak Attack box. If you purchase an item, make sure to include the words "Sneak Attack" in the "message to seller". It's also fun to tune into the current thread on Etsy to talk about it with other "attackers". YOU DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE A PURCHASE FROM ANY SHOP, EVER, but if you find something you like, feel free.
