Garage Sale Tip

I decided to have another garage sale this past Saturday. It is my 5th one over the years. I heard that making Scotcheroos was great selling feature at garage sale. So I decided to try it and man it was very hot item. It sold better than the lemonade. You need to make them big and sell them for more. I could of went higher on price, but since it was my first time. My son helped out quite a bit. Who would not by from a kid.

I have been secretly admiring this Etsy artist for . Please go check out this lovely store. She makes unique handbag and accessories. Jpatpurses explains, "Due to my special bat quilt interfacing technique that I developed, each item has structure, strength and stability yet still so soft and comfortable to carry. I use no patterns in the making of my items. "
I can speak from experience that statement is just as Jpatpurses explains. The purse does feel soft yet very durable. My last purse I bought was leather. I could of easily went to Younkers or Kohls to buy my purse. But instead I decided to put in a request for a custom order and it was my first on Etsy. What a great experience I had! I could not believe how fast the order was finished and shipped in a timely matter. To my surprise it was within one week. I decided to take a picture of my purse after arriving at my place. Here is the lovely purse that was customized for me.

She has made an excellent purse with high quality fabric and her stitching is very top notched. I love the ease of this purse and how it was designed. The pockets on the outside are great to have. I am very pleased to have made this wonderful decision and wanted to share this talented Etsy artist!

Front Page Treasury

Etsy has treasuries they pick to put on the front page. What happens is an artist curators them and then the Etsy administration picks them to put on the front page.
I was very excited last night after logging unto Etsy. I saw the front page and couldn't believe my eyes. I had to look at the name in the upper right hand corner to see if it was real. Yes it was real! I had to pinch myself. Do you remember when you sold your first item on Etsy how it felt? Well I felt ten times more excited than that. I don't know why but it sure is fun to create them. Now I think my next goal is hopefully an item I have will be picked to be on the front page treasury someday.
