It all started with a farm auction.....

After awhile a girl can get carried away - farm auctions were way too much fun, & the bargains - oh the bargains! It all started with vintage treasures from old egg beaters to horse harness to fabrics and patterns. You use them and share them and eventually you have too many so it's time to sell. I've always been a crafter so pitching anything that had "possibilities" was a "no-no". My favorites items eventually turned out to be vintage patterns and fabric because of the graphics. I loved the booklets and the fashions of the 30's and 40's.
The time came to share my treasures and unload all my totes and boxes. The internet was the perfect selling venue for me since I'm so far out in the country.
I started on the big bay and eventually got a nice shop to work in. What a joy that is too! I just do what I can each day and go from there. I'm still on the big bay but love the whole Etsy style. It has a fresh look and comfy feel to buy or sell, not so "Mall-Like". One of these days I'll sell down to the bare bones and move on to creating all the ideas I've been storing up for so long. I'm actually looking forward to that day but until then I have a few thousand items to go.
