I've been pleasantly surprised how much I'm selling in my Etsy Store. Not that I'm "raking in the dough" but I thought it would take a few months at least for people to even "find me" considering there must be hundreds of thousands of little Etsy stores out there. But in the first two months I have made sales from New York, to Washington, to Oklahoma, to Virginia, and more! I keep wondering how they are finding me?! But it has been fun so I'll keep going and hopefully it will keep growing!

I've been slow to write on my other blog, My Balanced Life ( due to simplifying my life...and trying to maintain balance ). I'm going to have to figure out a strategy there. Things were busy over the holidays and then we moved right into birthdays and overnights with Gramma and Grampa ( that would be my husband and I ) and then Valentine's Day. Whew! It's been a whirlwind of activity! And it's all good!

I have just a few things to show you that I bought for our Spring Sale! I've been able to find some nice things at auctions over the winter. Usually I'm scrambling in the Spring for inventory for our sale but this time I've been searching high and low over the winter.

Of course we always have a few vintage flower frogs. Many people use them as photo holders or vintage postcard holders.
I found a couple of rustic metal "sugar cube trays" that you could repurpose. What would YOU use them for? OR they could still be used for sugar cubes! Hah!
I'll be sharing more of our "finds" in the days ahead. I'll also be writing more about simplifying your life as well...
Check out Gwen And Alma's, my Etsy store. I have to replenish it though because I'm running out of inventory there. Find it by clicking it on the right sidebar.
If there is something specific you are looking for, let me know and we'll look for it when we're out searching. Let me know also what you would be willing to pay for it.
