Back in 2008, I was working part-time and looking for a way to make a little extra cash and also feed my creative side. I stumbled upon Etsy and set up shop. Back then I had to explain to people what Etsy was and no, I didn't mean Ebay. It's Etsy. I loved selling my homemade items, but when I went back to work full time, I closed my shop. I had always hoped to get back to Etsy. I also wanted to have another shop filled with vintage items. A few months ago I did both. I re-opened my shop, gave it a new name and started selling vintage. Maybe someday I'll get back to selling handmade items again, but for now selling vintage items is a lot easier. And I'm loving it. I also love that I have an excuse to thrift store shop more often and buy things I wouldn't normally buy because I don't have a place for the item. Check out my Etsy shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/junkism.
I was going to share some of my favorite things I have sold so far, but I'm having some trouble uploading photos tonight. Hopefully, I can get that fixed and share them soon. I was going to post the neat flashcards that were my first sale, the funky necklace that went to Moscow and a recent item that sold within hours of posting it.
It's been fun having an Etsy shop again, but selling vintage is a bit different from selling handmade items. Now I'm looking forward to summer so I can get out to some rummage sales and find some more things for my shop.
