This Mom Didn't Sell Anything At A Craft Fair So Twitter Bought Everything
December 6, 2016
A couple weeks ago, Martyn Hett from Manchester, England checked in with his mom to see if she was having a nice time at the craft fair. She told him she was a little sad that no one was buying any of her stuff.
Feeling sorry for her, Martyn tweeted the picture of his mom's stall at the craft fair.
My mum has set up her own stall at a craft fair and has messaged me to say she hasn't sold anything yet and my heart is breaking pic.twitter.com/cdzHn77pM5— Martyn 🍭 (@martynhett) November 26, 2016
Not long after Martyn tweeted the picture, a friend bought a glove monster from her Depop page.
One purchase turned into three.
Three turned into nine.
And before she knew it, Martyn’s mom, Figen, had a lot of work to do to keep up with demands!
Met up with me mam for the first time since her viral fame. She's stocked up on materials and has had a very busy weekend knitting 😂💖 pic.twitter.com/fCO0fqoVnh— Martyn 🍭 (@martynhett) December 4, 2016
And since the story has gone global, requests have been coming in from far and wide.
She's going global! 🌎 pic.twitter.com/AeB82EH0Za— Martyn 🍭 (@martynhett) December 1, 2016
The reactions have been great.
Since becoming a viral hit, Figen even bought a book to help her connect with her fanbase on Twitter.
Omg she's bought this book to help her cope with her new followers/fanbase on twitter 😂😂 I just love her pic.twitter.com/9R1pUmlYt9— Martyn 🍭 (@martynhett) December 4, 2016
If you fancy logging onto Figen’s Depop page to buy something, you might have some trouble because it's SOLD OUT!
But don't worry, Figen will be updating her page ASAP!
