Now, I must apologize for being so silent lately.
Let's catch up, shall we?
After the first Tandem Vintage sale, I got everything organized and put away back in the basement. Finally! And, I have now started collecting for our next sale in May:
|So freaking excited!|
I've never had sales so close together, so there is a lot to be done this month. This motivated Ash and I to thrift Saturday and most of Sunday. Here is Ash tucked in the backseat with all the goods:
|On the left is Jen. She helps us edit our carts so we don't buy everything. A shopping editor is essential and we love her.|
It might have been the best Easter ever. The thrifts were empty and we went around and filled our carts all while getting half off. It was a good day!
I have a new method to the madness that seems to be working well, however. I am now washing/tagging as I go - it's so much easier and making it all a bit more manageable. I have a bin in the dining room and when it gets full, it's time to wash/tag. So far, I am digging this new process.
In other news - my etsy shop is indefinitely on vacation.
Let me just break it down - in two days running our pop-up sale I made more money than in TWO YEARS in my etsy shop and sold more pieces than two years worth of selling on etsy. I am taking a break for now, but I am sure I will be back at it again at some point. But for now, no measuring, no listing, and no taking and editing pictures. I have to admit: I am loving this break. I get to now just spend my time focusing on what I love: finding amazing vintage.
Now, on top of all the sale prep, I have had two interviews locally for a new position. This is been fairly anxiety inducing for me, so I am just trying to take that part day by day and not freak out.
It seems like an interesting and super challenging position. Almost overwhelmingly challenging, but I think that might be a good thing. I am a bit scared (OK, I am scared outta my mind!), but at the same time, isn't it good to try new things and push yourself out of your comfort zone? I promise the minute I hear anything (good or bad), I will keep you posted.
So, that's pretty much life lately! C found out she was accepted to a teacher training program abroad -so she is going away in July for an all-expense, two-week trip to Germany. She is kicking ass right now and I am really proud of her. :) My July will definitely be a little lonesome, though, without her. If you're local, I am definitely going to need some mama time come July. :)
Wishing you all a fabulous Monday and sending you all a big hug!
