Who knew that putting yourself on a schedule would be so tough! Especially with all of the distractions of the interwebs and multiple social networking media. Anyone else find themselves with this problem?
I usually have a lot of things that I plan to accomplish during the week and well, I'm lucky to get through half of them. Enough about that though! I'm glad to be posting on a Saturday. I haven't managed to do that in a while.
I've been pretty lucky at the thrifts lately and the shop is also doing well. This makes me feel like I'm doing something right. I have high hopes for my little shop and other ventures so this just motivates me to keep pushing.
This wall plaque is one of a few that I found at a thrift recently. I knew I had seen them before but I could not remember who produced them. Luckily, Alamodern is a pretty comprehensive site and thus my questions were answered.
These plaques are made by Saint Andrew's Abbey and they are all similar in style. While I am not typically fond of religious souvenirs and figurines, I do appreciate the style that they have.
I am not sure about when these were produced because there are some scenes still made today. This means that I may put them up on ebay or look for a different venue. However, if any of you are interested you can just contact me through the contact page.
I just recently sold both of my cat related David Stewart pieces so it was a great coincidence that I found another to stock the shop!
A week or two ago I found this get little coffeepot by Figgjo of Norway in the Lotte pattern. I listed it in the shop and my gut told me to add Australia as one of the shipping locations and that's exactly where it went! I have yet to add the Everywhere Else option in my shipping locations but I hear it's great for sales. Buyers: If and when you find something you like on Etsy do you convo the seller about a shipping quote if they don't have it listed or do you end up changing your mind to avoid the hassle? I'd love to know.
Lastly, I found one more Ultima Thule piece this week! After years of not finding them I have found two in the past two weeks. This one is a Votive Candle Holder.
How did you do this week? I hope you share at Selena's and Sophie's!
