I love living on the Mississippi River; it provides us with so much, but it's a hazardous place to swim.
My favorite record store in Saint Louis, the Record Exchange.
I love to write and research objects to sell.
Shipping is a difficult part of selling vintage; I use USPS to ship everything. I am a very good shipper.
I only take Paypal, because waiting for checks can take a week. I try to have a 1-3 day turnaround; purchase to ship.

Vintage items and cultural artifacts of American life

I started selling online on Ebay in 1999; I think my sales got up to about 240 sales or so using the same name. I do not like Ebay's store fees and so I came to Etsy to build a store. Etsy has been pretty fun, but it has defects as well. I am very close to 250 sales now, about a sale every 3-4 days. I like to make things too, but I am clearing out a few things to make that handicraft fun possible.
