How Exciting!

I had been selling assorted vintage and antique items on EBAY for about 8 months and have been reasonably successful. The items were in my Parent's home (both gone now) so I can vouch for the authenticity of the items. It has been fun to watch items I grew up with go to new homes literally around the world! I even sold a few Christmas Cards and Gift Tags. A couple weeks ago, I decided to open an Etsy site. I'm located at http://www.craftsandcreations.etsy.com/. I thought it would be fun to watch that site, too. The "Business Plan" includes the offering of scrapbook pages, cards and crocheted items. Right now, I only have a small inventory and haven't sold anything yet. Today, to my surprise, I get an email that I my Birthday Card was selected as a favorite on a Treasury List... yipee!!!

My inventory should grow as time goes on! Wish me luck!

I just opened an etsy shop a few days ago. I checked yours... I used to crochet too. Not so much now that I'm into the paper thing, but maybe someday I'll take it up again.
