I know you know, but keeping up with my online shop is not easy. Not only does it involve many weeknights and weekends at estate sales and thrift shops (which I love) it also means washing these pretties, ironing them (hate!), organizing them, taking photos, measuring, marketing, packaging, going to the post office...You get it, right?
To be honest, at this point, as a shop owner, I pretty much cut even. I might even be losing money if I add in all the miles and miles of driving and gas that it takes to find everything! But I do it because I love it. And, remember, vintage prices might seem high, but as a seller, I understand all of the work that goes in to each item, and I happily spend most of the money I make on etsy on etsy, giving right back to the people trying to make a living from their passion.
I've decided I want to share more about being a shop owner this year. More posts about my vintage-hunting excursions, what I am finding, and what all goes into my shop. It's such a huge part of my life and I really want to share that with you. Cool?
Any who, on to the update!
I am seriously running out of room for my inventory. I might have to go on a shopping hiatus until some of this sells! I have three racks and they are all full. :) Who am I kidding...I just need another rack.
