- Vintage from the Village
- Ivybridge, Devon, United Kingdom
- Hi Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Sue and I live with my lovely husband who I will call Mr V and our nine year old daughter Miss V in a small town in South Devon. Everyone who lives here talks about it as The Village so that will be my blog name- Vintage fron the Village Also in our family are two cats, two guinea pigs some tropical fish and a pond with goldfish I have always loved making things and love pretty vintage things which I hope to sell as well to fund my passion! I am addicted to buying fabric,ribbons, buttons,wool etc and love to visit charity shops and car boot sales.I love glasses of wine, gardening, crochet (easy stuff!) and I am a big E-Bay fan ! I also love to read other people's blogs which inspired me to start my own. I look foward to hearing from you Best wishes Sue

Your advice please Ladies (and possibly Gentlemen?)
The above picture is not relevant to the question but it was a nice birthday card I had and I thought it is a lovely picture !
Anyway, what do I do about selling my wares?
I have been selling crafts at fairs and all sorts of things on Ebay for ages which I love but when I started doing this full time (for as long as I can get away with anyway!) I thought I would go a bit more specialised and have a Misi shop, I know its early days but I have only had one sale from it and am finding it a bit of a job juggling blog,ebay and Misi and have not got that much listed on Misi (probably why I have not sold much!)
I see lots of you have seperate blogs to sell things - how does it go? obviously cheaper but more limited audience?
Or what about Etsy (dollars put me off?) or Folksy etc
or should I put it all on Ebay (fairly expensive but am doing lots on there anyway so I find it easy)
I would love your comments
Well I better get some things done, Miss V was unexpectedly (spelling doesn't look right here?) invited to the beach with a friend so I have a child free gap in the day :)
Have a great weekend and I hope the sun stays out
