Garage/Craft Sale Day Two

Well, if I'm on the computer blogging then you can safely assume that the sale is really s-l-o-w.....

We had one customer at 9:00 when we opened and not a single one since. It's going to be a long day for sure. The good thing is that the rain has stopped and the sun is shining and a nice breeze is blowing.

Michael and Bernadette are coming over at noon so Bern and I can wrap everything we bought for next weekend's baby shower. It might take a while! :)

Having this sale and not being super busy has given me some time to think about my etsy shop, FourDogDay and that is a good thing. I have been doodling and making lists of things I want to do. Posting some question on Facebook to get a feel for some of the things I'm considering. I am so ready to get going. Get this....I have been trying to get Irv to open a Vintage Shop on etsy. He really loves the old stuff. He really didn't want to, but what we might do is have a small Vintage Section in FourDogDay to get the "feel" of it before we take the plunge and open a shop.

If he really isn't interested then we just let the things expire and no harm done. What do you think? Good idea or bad idea? I say anything is worth a try.

Well, since it's quiet I am going to work on some little blue elephants.....I'll show them to you after the shower...along with the invites, the place cards and all of the gifts. I'll take some pictures today.

Have a wonderful day today and I'll chat with you soon!

Well, of course I think the vintage shop (or section) is a great idea!! I can tell you just where to stop to find some great stuff (Illinois is a hot bed for antique shops- who knew??) It could be a great weekend trip for the 2 of you!

Hope you had more visitors at your sale. Vintage is hot and Etsy is promoting it like crazy on their home page. I think you should go for it, and I bet Irv gets hooked!

I think you are wise--what a clever idea!

One customer!!!! That is a really slow day. Hope things picked up in the afternoon.

I have no idea how etsy works but the "Vintage" section sound like a natural.

Hope your week's off to a good start.

I looked at your Etsy shop today and I found it very pretty. Perhaps a Vintage shop might suit you well. You have nice taste. I loved your blog post. It's calm and soothing even though a bit sad. Good luck, whatever you decide to do!
