An Everything Store

I've always thought it would be fun to own and operate a thrift store...or a craft store...or a bakery...or a bookstore...or a store that mixes all of the above! Since it's not possible for me to have a physical store like that, the internet has given me the opportunity to have a virtual store where I can sell all the things that bring me joy. I've sold items on eBay for a number of years, but that venue has gotten so big, I feel lost in it. A friend told me about Etsy a few years ago, and while I have shopped here a few times, I've never felt that I had anything to offer in a shop of my own.

As I have recently entered the "empty nest" stage of my life, I'm trying to discover who I am as a person, rather than as a mother or a wife. My sisters and my friends have encouraged me to explore my talents, but I have been rather timid about it. I've had a dream of being a writer, but not much confidence in myself. Creating a "fashion blog" was a big step for me, and I discovered that it really does bring me a lot of satisfaction, even if there are only 3 other people who read it! Now I am ready to chase another dream, to see if I can develop some confidence in another area of creativity...

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Returns and exchanges
Items damaged in transit or lost are not my responsibility; purchase of insurance is encouraged. Vintage items are sold "as is" and are not returnable. Other items may be returned, but only the purchase price will be refunded and the buyer must pay return shipping.
PayPal is my preferred method of payment, but a US money order is also acceptable. Payment is expected within 7 days of a sale.
Most items will be shipped via US Postal Service Priority Mail. Insurance is optional, at the buyer's request, and will be paid for by the buyer. Items will be shipped to the buyer within two business days of the sale date.
