After the vide-grenier chez-nous, I turned to planning the sale of my French treasures.
I am so pleased to have the diversity and quantity that I have.
In an attempt to keep my pricing down, I have decided to give Etsy a go. I’ll be selling some of our personal items on eBay as they’re not “vintage” (20 years or older) that we no longer use, but pretty much everything else is going to be put up in my Etsy store. We’ll see how it goes. Etsy allows me to put my items up for 4 months or whenever it sells so this is much more attractive for me at the moment. In the past there’s been such pressure selling on eBay as it was usually in one week increments and then everything ended at once and you had to deal with masses of shipping plus re-listing items that didn’t sell, or new ones to keep my “other items” list full enough to draw sufficient buyers.
It will be a new learning curve for me, but I think it will work out best for everyone.
So, for the moment, I’m photographing and compiling my listings so when I do open (read: stock) my Etsy store, I’ll have a great selection for everyone.
In the meantime, those of you that are interested in getting a sneak preview of what my 2013 brocante circuit has in store for you, scroll through my posts from April 2013 and preview some of my items that will be for sale. On the right hand side of the post is a section called Archives. Click on the month and year and scroll away. I went treasuring hunting pretty much every weekend in 2013 so there’s lots and lots of goodies for all.
If you fall upon something that you simply must, must have send me an email or enter a comment in the post where the photo is and I’ll give you more information on the item.
