mission accomplished! ETSY!

Well I finally did it!  I listed my first items on ETSY.  I no sooner placed my first item, and I went back to my home page to see what it looked like and it showed that I didn't have anything listed?
I was so confused until I figured out I had sold it almost as soon as I posted it.  Literally, less than two minutes after I posted it!!  I guess I must have priced that one too cheap?! lol!
here is the one that sold right away...
A vintage French embroidery sampler.
Here are a couple of other items I have posted...
a couple vintage French legal documents from the 1800's.
and some really cute vintage sock monkeys!

It takes a little while to figure it out, but once you do, it is pretty easy.

So for those of you that want a fix between Barn Sales visit us on Etsy!  We will continue to add to our Etsy store.
First New Years resolution completed!
