No Hoopla

It happened.

A couple of weeks ago I started listing things in my Etsy shop.  No fanfare.  No big announcement.  I just quietly began.  It was an attempt to actually get some Christmas items up before the whole holiday was past.  This was difficult for me to actually make the jump into selling.  I am the kind who has to have EVERYTHING in place before I pull the trigger.  I didn't feel ready, but I forced myself to get started anyway.  I mean, I could just keep thinking of stuff I still needed to do to prepare FOREVER.

I was pretty shocked when I received an email a few days later that $140 was transferred into my Paypal account.  I was confused until I realized I had my FIRST ETSY SALE!

It was a gorgeous vintage red lace dress.  1950s.  A woman from Australia bought it.  Since then I've sold some more things and I'm now up to 16 listings.  It takes a bit of time to complete a listing - photos, description, calculating shipping, etc., but I'm getting in the groove.  I still have a LOT more!

So, ok - go check it out... if you're interested.  Just click the red lemon wedge on the upper right of this screen.  I'm so happy to finally begin.


  1. Congrtas on your first sale Kathy! that's soooo exciting! I love that red dress!

  2. Yeah....... that last post shoulda said CONGRATS..... but I knew you knew that already! ;-)


Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
