TEA STAINED LACE....


Hi Everyone, Happy Spring to ya.  I've opened an Etsy Shop and sold an item the first day, plus something every week since then.  I'm having fun with it.  It's called Tea Stained Lace and if you want, check it out, here  .  Here are just a few items currently for sale.  I'm going to add clothing, purses, shoes and jewelry soon.  I want a well curated store with good photos and details of the items.   I mostly buy items that I like or love instead of buying things that I think a potential buyer will love.  Megan of Two Birds Blog suggested I post about my store since you know I've been an absent blogger.  Thanks Megan!!

Vintage Vacron bowl set.

Keep your balls warm for long distance driving...for the golfer in your life.  I add a new item everyday and now accept all major credit cards.  I'm not shipping internationally yet as I'm still trying to figure out the postage here in the states. 

As you may or may not know through my instagram at suitcase vignettes, I am a new mama to four 11 day old kittens.  I trapped the mama in my neighborhood using a trap that South Jersey Rescue provided for me and within  3 hours of setting the trap, mama Lucy went in.  Within 24 hours of rescuing her, she gave birth to 4 healthy, free of leukemia kittens.  It has been stressful to say the least because mama is a feral but she is warming up to me and let me pet her for the first time yesterday when I took everyone to the vet for checkups.   There is another part to this story but I am saving it for another time.  My life is one adventure after the next.  People without children find other things to do with their time or should I say other things to stress them out...hahaha.  Take care and thanks as always for dropping in.  admirably, dawn xo

Posting about your shop would be interesting. You could even do a whole series on tips to get started. A lot of people, including myself, have wondered about selling on ETSY. Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com

So glad to see you post! Congrats to your new store on Etsy! I may need to get with you to see how to do that and be successful at setting it up! I sell on Ebay, but I am having a hard time getting a lot of traffic. I sell vintage dresses. Glad you are well, congrats momma! I have two cats myself.

Yay Dawn good for you on opening! I have still yet to open my etsy shop although I have been collecting vintage clothing for it, just need to find the time to get it set up! Your shop is great!

Hi Dawn, It's been a while and I love your vintage finds. Especially the cute golf ball warmers. how clever. Also your story about the kittens is really adorable and what a miracle they were all born all right. I'm sure you have your hands full

Hello Dawn! How's it going? Your shop sounds lovely! Alas, me being an international reader means I cannot purchase! Hope your US buyers do you proud!
The kitties sound a handful!x
