November – Good Sales Month

I had my second best sales month ever. This past July was my best.  31 items went out the door this month.  I have so enjoyed the interaction with my customers.  Everyone has just been wonderful to work with.  I have had some rush orders, and others that have asked me to hold the orders, so they don’t arrive when they aren’t home.  I am always happy to try make it work for them.

I have also listed a few new things.

Blue Snack Set d

This lovely turquoise Hazelware snack set is simply lovely.  I fell for the color as well as the shape.

Anchor Hocking Snack Set d

I also added two beautiful Anchor Hocking Snack Sets.  The trays are clear glass, but the cups are an emerald-green.  Perfect for a holiday party.  I decided to sell the two, 8 piece sets together.

Amber Bubble Pitcher

This funky dot Hazel Atlas pitcher.  I call it a bubble pitcher. Not sure what it really is called.

Brown File Drawers Stacked

A set of industrial file drawers.  There are 3 stackable cabinets that I decided to sell together.  Is industrial still hot right now?  I think so, my industrial items still seem to sell.

Green Wool Hat a

Still finding vintage hats.  So I added this lovely green wool hat to my store.

Scarf d

I also added this vintage scarf along with a couple of cowboy hats and leather gloves.  Since it is cold outside here in North Dakota it is easier to list warm clothing.

 

Fisher Price Airport a

I even added some vintage 1970s Fisher Price toys like this Fisher Price Airport set.

Fisher Price Service Station a

Or this wonderful Fisher Price Parking Ramp and Service Station.  I love those toys that were like ones I played with.  Those Little People were so much better than the shape and look of those “safer” ones today.

Sewing Drawer

This vintage sewing drawer was listed and sold quickly, but I just had to show it to you.  The design and the drawer pull were fabulous. This one is one of those items in the bottom of an auction box that makes me squeal in delight at the unexpected find.  It would be wonderful as a storage drawer in a craft room.

Yes, there is much more.  I think the next couple of weeks will remain steady, or at  least I hope they do, so I will be focusing on listing and selling.

If you have a store, are you finding that your sales are up?

  1. Karen, haven’t had time to reply to your email. I LOVE that gold pitcher! I have been picking up glasses/tumblers with a similar glass…only in a green color…at the second hand store. Two different sizes. I am so excited to know who makes it, or what it’s called so I can find more 🙂 Sharing the etsy link with my daughter with the very direct hint that she can buy this for me for christmas 😀

    • Don’t worry about replying to my email, I just wanted you to know that I will look and the other things I have. I think the dot or bubble pattern is so pretty. Glad you now know iti s from Hazel Atlas. I hope you can find more, I know they are out there.
      I hope you enjoy the holiday season.

  2. sooo a few questions–you sell on etsy right? how is their shipping? It used to be really hard to ship with them because I could just print off my shipping labels from the site and drop them off at the PO I dont’ have time to stand in a line for every sale–I’m pretty sure you don’t either so it must be easier now? advise or better write a post about it!!
