Busy as an Etsy Bee

Wow, I've been super-busy over this last week! It always seems there's never enough time in the day. I've managed pretty well with the Frocktober challenge, sadly I wasn't always able to get pictures of my outfits due to the weather. However, on the plus side, I did discover some new ways to wear clothes I already had, and I'll definitely be trying them out again, so there will be photos in the future.

I also spent some time at local op shops, and boy did I get some booty! I've learned a hard lesson though, as the first batch I wanted to keep all to myself! I've since figured out that the secret is to buy really awesome things in sizes that aren't mine, so I won't feel like keeping them instead of selling them to a new home.

I'm still in the process of deciding between Etsy and eBay. I think I might do a mix, as some items seem more in tune with an eBay audience, and others I think fit in more with the 'feel' of Etsy (I think that they'll be appreciated as true vintage, rather than vintage which happens to also be back on trend at the moment, if that makes sense!) I also think that some people use Etsy because they can't afford to get in bidding wars with other people over something they really love, so unlike eBay, Etsy gives them a chance to actually get something they love, right away!

Of course I'll let you know when the listings go up, but a sneak peek at some of the items is not far off. I found some great scarves (including a YSL which I just HAD to keep for myself), some cute pin-up style skirts, and some great little tops. Photos to come soon!
