Well tonight, probably inspired by some of the wonderful vintage sellers I've been running into lately, I found myself looking into the possibility of opening up an Etsy Shop. It started off as just an idea, something I might want to do in the future. But suddenly I found myself playing around with shop names, and then looking for images for my shop banner. And before I knew it, I was signing up to be an Etsy seller!
Maybe this is a little premature for me to be sharing this - because I don't have anything for sale yet! I need to figure out exactly how Etsy works, and then get my shop set up just so before I start selling. But I'm so excited about my new venture! So I wanted to at least share with you the name of my shop - Sarsaparilla's Boudoir - and show you the image I created for my shop banner:
I'll continue to sell on eBay too. But I'll probably mainly use that venue for my "mantiques" - like the little plastic Hong Kong cars that I'm selling right now. Or the 1950's men's swim trunks I sold a few weeks back. And Sarsaparilla's Boudoir on Etsy will be reserved for those vintage finds that have a distinctly feminine appeal. Girlie stuff. Sound like a good plan?
Now the only problem is...how will I possibly find the time to juggle all of this! I did tell you that from nine to five I have a real job, right? One that has absolutely nothing to do with antiques. So my blog and eBay and Etsy all have to be managed in the evenings & weekends.
That makes it kind of tricky to fit in any kind of social life (i.e. men & dating). But who needs men! Lately, I've been having so much more fun without 'em!
