Cyber Monday Shopping Extravaganza

I am participating in TEAM ESST's Cyber Monday Shopping Extravaganza. All purchases over $25 will receive free shipping. This special offer is for my Etsy shop, but if you mention Cyber Monday - I will extend the offer to my eBay store. So, mix & match between the sites & get those beads that you've been thinking about. And while you are on-line check out some of the other Team ESST members great deals.

Postings gone wild

More wonderful old beads found their way to my house - good golly they are wonderful. I had a trunk show with Jeanne & everyone that saw the micro selection that I put out was impressed. I was nice to sell quite a few beads before I even sorted them. I've caught myself playing with them when I should be working on other things. If you are nice & ask, I might even give you a special preview...eventually these will get into either on Etsy or eBay.

I have been better about working on-line & my Etsy sales have picked up. I have gotten wonderful feedback & a lot of repeat sales. Several of my Etsy Supply Street Team (Team ESST) mates have added me as a favorite. I love looking at their shops as well. As I tell just about everyone I talk to - you can find the most interesting things on Etsy. I don't think that a lot of people think about going to ESST for supplies, but they should. The quality and prices are often remarkably better than what I see 'off-line'. If you are looking for supplies for your craft projects start by searching Team ESST.

OMG!! Where did October go?

How the heck is it November??

Well one thing is for sure I didn't get a lot done with my beads during the past month. Ebay changes made me stop & think about how I want to list on that site & where I want to list which beads. I have deleted some listings & recreated others... frankly, this is the part of selling on-line that I hate. I like playing with the beads. Taking the photos, coming up with descriptions, selling them and corresponding with the artists that buy vintage beads. My goal for November is to spend more time listing beads - I still have a ton of listings that I need to change on eBay, but more importantly I have some amazing beads that aren't doing anyone any good sitting in my office. Gotta get those listed. Hopefully at the end of November I will be able to look back with more pride in my accomplishments than I can for October.
