First Etsy Sale

Monday I ship the Griswold #8 waffle iron to Texas. My first Etsy sale feels great. Here's hoping for many more!

Living in a small town options are few to sell expensive or unique items, especially antiques.

I've had my fill of Ebay and Craigslist is great for everyday items, cars, boats and furniture but antiques have not sold well there, in my experience.

When the snowbirds return, Craigslist may be a better option. Surely it will for a few yard sales.

Meanwhile, I continue to unpack, dust, photograph, price and prepackage some items.

Feels good to be doing something besides watching the rain, reading, cooking and napping. As long as my energy lasts, I'll keep plugging away.

Here's a few of my offerings at Whimsywind:

Flying Geeze twin quilt, hand stitched $125.

Wine Cork 2-shelf caddy: $22.50

Yelloware Water Cooler with spigot: $100.

Birch Bark Stars: 3 for $25.

Well, time for Kitty Kitty and I to porch sit awhile before bed.

You all enjoy your weekend! Treesong

That grill was not destined to stay on the market long. Almost had my wife convinced to let me buy it.

No matter, I'm sure it's going to someone who knows what to do with it.

Congratulations on your sale.

I miss that Griswold waffle maker already but hopefully it will get more use at its new home.

I'm sure this is but the first of many sales to come!

You did good, my friend!
