As many of you know, I started reselling my goodies about 4 months ago. I honestly didn't know what to expect. I now realize why people say it is a roller-coaster. I didn't expect much the first month because I was just getting started but things were picking up by the second month and looking good. Then came summer and oh boy can we say a drought came along with it on Etsy! As a result, some twitter folks decided to take up Ebay and I am so very tempted to follow suit. Do any of you sell on Ebay? Would you like to share any tips?
This week I didn't do much thrifting. Sales have pretty much come to a screeching halt and I find myself with lots of inventory waiting to be listed. All of these finds are from either last week or even prior to that.
I often get creeped out by porcelain dolls or anything with faces on them. I put those feelings aside for these because I thought someone on Etsy would love to have them. They appear to be UCTCI pieces because of the glaze. How do you feel about babydoll faces?
Trays, trays, trays. I love trays almost as much as I love baskets. I loved the floral paisley-esque pattern on these. I think it'd look great in an eclectic or bohemian setting.
I was really excited when I saw this piece sitting in a display cabinet. I was certain it was a Bjorn Wiinblad piece. I've seen his face pieces before however this one isn't signed. Upon further research I think it is actually a piece by Fitz and Floyd in the manner of Wiinblad.
This pretty little lady is from sweden. So folksy and so cute.
I found my first set of Dansk Tiny Tapers. I will be putting these up in the shop because we just don't use many candles in our home. Some are wonky because of the heat I suppose.
Lastly, I have a really weak spot ( i know I have many ) for leather bags. A couple of months ago I passed on what I believe was an authentic Hermes Birkin bag. Well, since that day I won't pass on a bag that I believe to be leather even if it is a little more than I'd like to pay. This is a vintage Brahmin bag and while they aren't really high-end they're still a nice brand. This puppy just needs a little saddle soap and it should be as good as new (i hope!)
I'll be sharing at Selena's this week. Have a great one!
