About

Learning to let go.

I have been a collector my whole life. Starting and sticking with an Etsy store is so much fun. I have sold things at auctions, flea markets, you name it. Yes, even on Craig's list.
Etsy is really different. I meet people every day in Austin that has an Etsy store. This adds to its enjoyment. Etsy has grown so much. I have joined years ago but did not get the courage to list anything until two years after joining. Before I ramble on, even more, we are nonsmokers. Many of my items are out on display in my home. We do have one Schnauzer and one Daschund dog. The Daschund is a rescue. Max passed away. Max almost reached his 15th birthday. I will post some pics soon. My purses do not have odors. My pups are clean. Mel gives them weekly baths.
When I first moved to Austin nine years ago. I did not know much about computers in those days. I have learned a lot since then.
Now a computer is part of my daily life. Do not know what I would do without at least one. Now I have a desktop, laptop and tablet and a smartphone.
In 2009, a friend and neighbor came to visit and told me about Etsy. My neighbor told me I should open a shop. When I took a look at the site, I was totally blown away by all the people, blogs, items, teams, everything. Finally, two years later I decided it was time to " take the plunge" and see if I liked having a store.
Etsy began as a way to downsize. My three children can see what I am selling and let me know if they want a certain item. Then I can save it for them. They all have their own homes and collections.
I feel fine about selling things I inherited from my parents, grandparents, uncle, and two husbands. A lot of things come from Iowa and my old store ...At Grandma's Place in Monticello, Ia. Being an avid shopper with loads of Goodwills here in Austin means being careful not to buy too many "new" old things here. That is the real challenge.
I really don't sell anything I don't love. Hope you enjoy Austin Baubles.

    Me and my best friend and partner Melvin take care of this shop. He came into my life about 11 years ago and has been with me every day since.

    Whenever I really need help he is always there. Both of us being retired makes that very convenient. He helps with shipping and driving.
