Betting on Etsy to Pursue a Dream!
I've always loved collecting vintage treasures - perusing thrift stores and attending the occasional estate sale or auction. But I took this passion to the next level when I wanted to make a big change in my life.
After working at a corporation and a few small businesses for 7 years, I decided to take a big risk and leave it all behind in pursuit of a dream. Music has always been a big part of my family and it played a huge role in forming me as a kid. After trying to fit into the business world and feeling like a square peg in a round hole, I decided to take my life into my own hands.
In January 2012 I left my position at an ad agency and started my new life as a full time musician. I knew that I'd need to work longer hours and more varied jobs to make ends meet - and that's where Etsy came in.
The growing collection of vintage ephemera in my house sparked an idea - maybe other people would like some vintage home decorations as well! So I tested the waters by attending my first auction - this was an eye-opening experience to say the least. I listed a few things on Etsy and away they went! I've been hooked ever since!
Now I spend my days scouring every thrift store in sight, and my calendar is filled with auctions and estate sales all around Illinois. At night I play gigs with my husband and schedule shows for our band. Throw in the occasional trip to Nashville for songwriting and my life is busy! But I wouldn't have it any other way.
Over the past few months my basement has been transformed into a storage space for all my treasures - as well as a small recording studio for my music. There's a white rectangle painted on the wall of our guest bedroom that also serves as a photo backdrop for my products. I make almost daily trips to the post office and am on a first name basis with the little old ladies at my favorite thrift store!
When I left the security of a 9 to 5 job to become an Etsy seller and full-time musician, my life turned 180 degrees. And my only regret? Not having done it sooner!
