The internet really has a nifty way of showing us that humanity does have its moments. On November 26, Martyn Hett from Manchester, England, posted on Twitter that his mom was having a hard time selling her wares on a craft fair. Later on, he tweeted that she had a Depop store from which interested buyers can view and order her items. Word got around and people started buying her creations online. Days later, cute hearts, teddies, and sock monsters were all sold out from her page. Demand for her cute items skyrocketed that Martyn’s mom, Figen, had to restock her materials to create more!
