::Etsy Update ::

   These are just a few of the things I've sold in my etsy shop since opening.  It got off to a slow start...but it's picking up. 

 Rusty Vintage--
 Crazed and Chippy--
 Traditional Holiday 
Cute and Farmhouse... 

Couple of things I've learned.... on breakables, add $2.00 to the shipping price for anything worth up to $50
Pack well.  Here is a Frugal Fodder tip for you--- when packing breakable items you can recycle old phone books. I shred mine and pack all around the item. Makes for a free packing material and extra cushion, besides just the bubble wrap! 

I also have hand crocheted items in my shop as well,
Bath Scrubbies
Dish Cloths

Kitchen Sets

  Stop by now to get 20% off before the Dec 31!

Hmm... just threw out an old phone book. Great idea. Will hang onto the next one.

Great idea about the phone book packing paper - I'll have to remember that one the next time I ship something out. Love your crochet lace! Nice workman(woman)-ship!!!

The crocheted bath scrub and dish clothes are a good idea as the plastic ones are a bit hard, seeing I'm on the other side of the world I will have a go at making.

Keep plugging along. It takes awhile to build up an etsy shop, but its a nice place to sell. I keep EVERY box, padded envelope, sheet of bubble wrap, tissue paper, etc that comes into the house to repackage my items in! Good tip about the phone books. Lisa/Fresh Eggs Daily

I have ordered things from Ebay and it is always interesting to see how things are packed. This week the person mixed up the order and I received a tablecloth that was supposed to go to Maine and the Maine person got mine. We had to both then ship to each other!
