Estates, estates, estates. I have a funny problem. (funny odd, not funny Ha, ha) My office resembles an antique store. A packed antique store. Shelves tower over my desk, filled with a vast array of diverse items. Staring straight ahead I can see a Victorian china doll, a mid century modern sculpture, an antique tabletop stereoscope, a bunch of board games and piles more. And yes, I keep the LED Christmas lights on year round. They're very happy looking.
So I'm having a 1/4 off sale! I decided there was no point in being delicate about it. I need to make space for the new estates that are coming in. I've just been given a huge collection of Victorian children's glass toys, several old quilts, boxes of 19th century photos, a bunch of old tools, and a bunch more. Boxes and boxes and boxes, oh my!
I like estates because they're so diverse. So while I say I'm getting in quilts, I'm also getting the antique kewpie dolls that were in that estate. It's really amazing what I find packed away in steamer trunks.
I used a new site called www.etsyonsale.com to create my sale. They marked all the prices down and will unmark them when the sale is over. I see a few issues with their service that need to ironed out, but overall I'm fairly content. So far, anyway!
I've got to get back to work now. Trying to list 1000 items before the end of the year. I have more than that to list, but it's just me here. Or rather, me and a baby, a 6 year old and an almost 8 year old. Add in a few dozens chickens, barn cats, and a very patient husband and you've got a good picture of my life!
