Man, have I been a little sidetracked from my blog lately? Geez, almost a month has passed. Well there’s good reason for that. I have been selling my little pants off! Thank God for that. Since I last posted I participated in the Lobos Country Store Open Market, the Ramona Certified Farmers Market (x2), the San Diego Vintage Flea Market and a yard sale! PLUS I’ve had lotsa sales in my Etsy AND eBay stores! March was by far my best selling month to date and I’m so grateful for all the buyers, fellow sellers and of course my BF who is the bestest…out there helping me on his days off =)
My life wouldn’t be complete without picking so you KNOW I’ve done some of that and found some absolutely amazing finds. I literally found an $8 item at the thrift store one day and turned around the next week and sold it for a whopping $330! Now T H A T’s what I’m talking about! wooopty woop. If I could do that every week, I could leave my “other” job and be cool like that all the time. Lol!
And as if picking fab treasures and selling them wasn’t enough, I just had to have these two pieces of furniture…and I just HAD to refinish them! The vanity I’m selling and once the “desk” is refabbed it is m i n e all mine! Can’t wait to have a little more time for refinishing, I’m starting a collection in my washroom/project shed! Guess there’s plenty of time for sleep in the afterlife…but I better get busy while I’m stil breathing. Happy picking ya’ll!
As you may know “winter” has come to San Diego…and of course it lasted all of about 3-4 days and has now moved along! The most rain we’ve seen in years perhaps. So of course, I was jonesing for a good pick but chose to stay indoors to stay safe from the rain, wind and hail! During the midst of the epic storm I spent a lot of time cleaning up my Etsy store, reviewing listings, updating shipping and cleaning up some dingy photos. Of course I couldn’t help but to add a few newbs to the catalog of items as well. I can hardly believe the store now has 330+ listings!!! I remember when I started with 50. It may not seem like much a of a stretch but you also have to consider the 110+ sales I’ve had while adding on to the list! Whew…that’s a lot of packing paper and tape.
I posted some amazing religious items this week. One of which was a lot of 45pieces of Catholic religious prayer cards and remembrance funeral cards. They are lovely and reminiscent of another time and place. Paper ephemera has always been an enigma to me…love the colors and styles but never had the forethought to “make” something cool with them. I have many more items sitting in the queue to be added sometime in the future. But for now, here’s a peek at what I posted —>
