1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, TEN!!!!

september 013 
SOOOO I started something new last month and have not shared it on here yet (mostly in case it went bad:>) Actually I started it at the beginning of July, got pregnant, puked my guts out for a few months, stopped living through the summer, changed my whole mind set, found some vintage stuff packed away in my craft room, and THEN I finally got the whole thing started.  What did I get started????  An ETSY shop.  At first I had visions of selling stuff I had made....but once I got started I realized that vintage stuff was the way to go for me right now. 
WELL now it has been about 2 and a half weeks and I have had TEN sales.  Time to celebrate:)  I know it is not big business, but it is fun---I enjoy it---and I get to make a little money of my own.  I actually went to the spa this weekend and it was COMPLETELY paid for with my own Etsy money.  FUN!!!! 
Here is the link to the shop....
AND...what can you find there????
It all started with these.....

A bunch of vintage hankies.  I threw them up on my Etsy site because I had them and saw others who were selling them.  WHY the heck not???
Now I have a lot of these….

Vintage sheets.  Franny found this one is Spokane.  She thinks she deserves a cut:) I love the orange and yellow---how cute would that be as a quilt back????? YUM!!!!  And my all time favorite…….

I loved this red one----doesn’t it look Japanese or something????  I had two of these and they sold in less than 24 hours…..I guess someone else liked them too!!
Now I have started cutting….and I have cute fat quarters like this…..

Since my original intentions were to throw my handmade goods out there….I also included a few things like this….
september 001 Go check me out in Etsy-Land!!!!  You may find something you MUST have:) 
ALSO….while you are checking me out….head on over to CRAFT GOSSIP and check out yesterday.  I got a comment from a reader who mentioned that I had been featured over there.  How cool is that…somebody likes me????? :)

I hate to sound like a total mom here, but I'm so proud of you! I just checked out your shop, and it is awesome! I'm thinking I'll probably be making a contribution to your next spa weekend one of these days. :) Congrats on the great work!

Great job Jessica! I did the ETSY thing for 1 1/2 years. It was fun while it lasted!
