Not only did I make my first sale on Etsy last night, I made it in record time - about 5 minutes after I posted it!
I listed this great vintage Montgomery Ward coat, then I did another listing, then I saw that the coat had gone missing... So I looked around, and looked around, and was resigning myself to the fact that I would have to re-do it when I happened to see in my sidebar - 1 item sold!
All I can say is... halleluja!
That sale was just the little bit of encouragement I needed, and I spent a few hours happily adding new things:
Remember these? They got no love on eBay, so I moved them to Etsy (after a brief thought of, well, I could just keep them... but my more practical side won the battle this time!).
This is another piece that I tried on eBay with no luck, here's hoping some Etsian will appreciate it a bit more! It's a tin toleware silent butler - or, in layman's terms, a crumb catcher. I think it would be a great little trinket box or storage container, and I love it's shabby chic vibe!
I moved quite a bit of my clothing stash from eBay to Etsy also, and I think I may eventually move all of it there. My eBay store is so overloaded - there are like, a gazillion categories! - that I am trying to narrow it down a bit. I had already decided to move my jewelry to Etsy, so moving my clothing there also just makes sense. (If you are tiny - size 4 or 6 - it's your lucky day because most of what I listed is in that size range!)
So yeah, it's a happy day here, despite the big snowstorm that is rolling through. I was smart though and went to the store yesterday and stocked up, so we won't need to leave the house until sometime next week. :) Snow is always so much prettier when you don't have to worry about driving in it!
